CHETAN BHAGAT VOICES THE YOUTH

Indian institute of technology commonly known as IIT is probably the dream college of those who aspire to be the engineers of tomorrow who are on a     heartbreaking race to tackle the entrance giant IIT-JEE.The participants of this race are building up dream castles on the plans which they intend to put into practice if they ever make it into an IIT. But there is an IITan who didn’t think about what to do at a n IIT, but what not to do at an IIT. That is none other than CHETAN BHAGAT who swept out the hearts of millions of young readers all over the world through his debut venture FIVE POINT SOMEONE.

The story unwinds in one of the prestigious campuses of our country:IIT Delhi. The campus is an inbuilt city with various departments,staff quarters,hospitals and round the clock functioning library and above all a bunch of students who breathe in science instead of oxygen. The story is about three friends Hari, Ryan and Alok.The story unfolds through the eyes of Hari.Like every new student who enter IIT , the too had a bundle of dreams and a vision about the life they are going to live.But everything collapse when they receive their first grades. Despite their brains they always remained at the bottom of the class with the grades between 5 and6. That’s how the title came ‘5 point someone’.

The novel is about their strenuous efforts to raise their grades to acceptable level without any considerable hard work. They devised ways to fool around Profs. , bunk classes, to mess up assignments etc etc etc. Ryan, who is a born leader, is a handsome, well built guy who comes up with bright innovative ideas which are blindfolded followed by his friends even though they end up in trouble.

The trio enjoyed their IIT life to the maximum , but the trouble came when the exams were at the doorsteps. As a last resort they decided to get hold of the exam question papers. They were caught in the act,suspended and their lives were ruined.

But they completed their course with the help of Prof.Veera.

Chetan has successfully portrayed the cool attire of today’s youth in his book.It is a must read for those who love cool books…
