Brain powers, Lack of Freedom, Non-stop Work at IT field


A story about three students at IIT who do not prosper at IIT, on IITs positions. Getting into IIT definitely shows that they have brainpowers; not receiving out ofIIT shows that they do not have the brilliances. As the subtitle "What not to do at IIT" suggests, the protagonist do everything that is unthinkable at IIT. Though this book is well written, it leaves a lot to be expected and the plot could have been better. I read this book after watching the movie 3 Idiots and the movie is much better written than the book. Though I agree with

Mr.Bhagat’s writings are nearly a bit of the picture is based on the book.
