Arindam Chatterjee is a middle-class Delhi boy with an aptitude for science and maths but the yearning to be the drummer of a rock band. This necessitates his admission to the premier engineering college of India, the IIT, where life revolves as much around proving rarefied mathematical truths as it does chasing the elusive high of rock stardom at the IIT Rock Fest... Lyrical, spare, and charmingly self-deprecatory Amitabha Bagchi's debut novel is a deeply funny account of growing up intelligent, sensitive, ambitious, and confused.
'I like the honesty and truthfulness of the story; I like the understated quality of the emotions, and I particularly appreciate the simplicity and directness of the prose style.'
