Ragbag father sat on a sofa with visiting relatives. Ihey had come rocongratulate the Kashyaps. Anyway,it didnt matter, Raghav and I went-to his room. When people are offered something on a platter, they dorft value it. Raghav had a thing for writing. He had published: However, this soundedinsane. Journalism is my passion.

Why does Aarti make statements likethese? What dm I supposed to soy? Aarti looked at me, She hypnotised meevery time,. She was fuming prettier every week A,: She turned to the shopkeeper. Uncle, twenty per cent discount! Aarti wasiit too conscious of her looks,She never checked herself out in mirrors, never had make-op on, a nd eyeoher hair often,. At the last minute you say random thing? I could. J will ieil dad I also wane to repeat a year.
I said, almost believing her. Tm joking, stupid. She burst iuLo peals of laughter. I am not agulli-whateverperson. Still, Aarti could defeat. She logged at my elbow and dragged meout of the shop,! I said as I tumbled with my wallet. She took my wallet and placed it back in my shot pocket. You want to try the new Domlnos at Sigra? Dont Its not good, Especially for yore Why? They dorft say good things about girls who sit 00 theghats.
I hated that term, I wanted to talk, about my place m her life, eventhough I did not want to-makethings unpleasant "But now I aro leaving,I said. We will he in touch. Kota, tight? I nodded. Loni look so glum, she brid, V e 1 card the leoipk bells ring m ihe 1distance.
About anyone. And I like what you and I share, Dont you? But I am leaving now; If we had a commitment wouldnt it bebetter? Gopal we are so young! We walked down, to the waters. She downloadd a set of six lit diyasfor five rupees;She passed one. She set one diya afloat. I said, baffled by the drivers knowledge. He laughed and "turned around.
My whole family is into education. My wife. He extended his grease-staioedliand. I diook It as little as possible txopal from Vmmmil. He gave me a business card for the tiffin service. Let us take cart of the food. You hoys study it is such a tough exam: Come on, Gopal bhai. I went to the smallguard post at: A watchman sat inside, Who do you.
The watchman. One held clothes, the other carried thebooks thai had failed to get me anywhere so far. My rucksack carried, thestuff Aarti had bought me, I missed her. I wondered if I should find an I or Medical? Kola locals find it hard to place outsiders until they know what they arethere for. I said, somewhat b he saidiiid. I f yon.
You will he out of-the house more. Repeaters only go for coaching classes. Many sleep all day; Some landlordsdont like that Sos.
Fix my fee first m a t? I said T take half a months rent. Whats your budget? Thats it? I said The watchman sneered, as If someone had asked for country liquorin a live-star bar.
I said, wondering if Id be spending my firs! He opened the gate and kept my suitcases in hiscabin. Three to a room: I said, but how will I study?
I want a private one, however. We climbed up three floors. I panted due to the exertion. The extremeneat did not help, Kota is hot, get used to the weather, the watchman said,: It is horrible outside. That is why it is a good place to stay inside and We reached the fourth floor, I struggled to catch my breath. Hecouidot stop talking, So you will study for real or you are just hepaused mid-sentence. Just what?
Many students: They know they wont get in. M least the parentssiop harassingthem for a vean he said, But if you need stuff like beer or cigarettes, tell me, Thishousing society doesnt allow it So? One thing leads to another and soon Gopal and Aarti become best friends, sharing their food and time. Just when I expected the story to follow a romantic lead, Chetan introduced a twist by meddling love with career.
As expected, the frail shoulders of this love-lost young man snap under the heavy load, and he returns to Varanasi as a doomed man, only to find Aarti in the arms of his childhood friend, Raghav.
Now, what would the boy do? Kill himself or beg his uncle for an out of court settlement or become a thief to get rid of the loan? Well, any normal man under ordinary circumstances would have taken one of the above course.
BUT, when you are reading Chetan Bhagat, you must not expect anything logical and always be ready for the most bizarre conclusion to follow. And, true to his style, Bhagat shocked me again, by making this poor orphan the director of an Engineering College, who is offered a political opportunity and is the darling of a bright, beautiful young girl.
Would these new changes make Gopal happy or would he further slip in his life, forms the basic framework of this novel, that oscillates between love, friendship, jealousy, moral responsibilities and the wide spread corruption and degradation in the society. It had a sombre attitude, riding more on sympathy wave than the devil-may-care tone of Five Point or Two States. There were even lesser swear words and the language and narration was also more lucid and serious.
But, soon I found the sobriety replaced by an over all melancholy and the novel appeared to be more a sermon on the immoral society, than an interesting love triangle. The rampant corruption and moral lassitude occupied center stage, and Gopal and Raghav became the epitome of evil and good, confusing their personal tiff with the high profile cleansing of Ganga and mushrooming of technical institutes run by goons and politicians.
And, in the end, the story did justice to none of the agendas. Even the characters and the situations seemed almost impossible and artificial. Aarti, who should have been the catalyst in bringing about a change in the moral character of Gopal, was instead presented as a confused girl, who changes sides with wealth.
