Arindam Chatterjee floats from the middle-class security of his home in East Delhi to the fiercely competitive world of the Indian Institute of Technology and onwards to the East Coast of the US. He encounters rock musicians and coaching-class nerds, mathematical geniuses and ountaineers, ill-fated underachievers pursuing big dreams and overachievers who are never satisfied. On his journey he begins to realize that his life is a confused tangle of ambitions and aspirations, some attainable, some not and some hanging tantalizingly in between. Imbued with a gentle humour, and lauded for its honesty and lucid prose, Amitabha Bagchis bestselling debut novel is a story of adulthood being forged out of adolescence; a story about wanting, always wanting, without necessarily knowing why you want.

About the Author:

Amitabha Bagchi was born in Delhi and went to school there. The last few years of school was a blur of exams Junior Science Talent Search, National Talent Search, Annual Maths and Physics Olympiads and coaching classes to prepare for those exams. He finally found himself at IIT Delhi in the summer of 1992 thinking that the worst was over. It wasn't. Belying the expectations raised by his uninspiring performance at IIT, Amitabha got his PhD in Computer Science in 2002. Then, after loitering around for a couple of years with the nebulous designation of post-doc, he returned to IIT Delhi where he is currently employed as an assistant professor.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers India, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. 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. Both of which necessitate 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. Printed Pages: 307.
