Author: Krishna Kranthi, lives in Hyderabad just like me. I never heard his name before in the literary scene of the city. I was thinking I would be the one debuting into the literary world from Hyderabad, but he seemed to have plunged into before me.

Plot: Like many, Revant has dreamt of getting that fancy and highly regarded MBA degree. After working hard, finally he gets an admission to one of the top Indian B-schools. His excitement is short lived as the overwhelming pressure and the vague definitions of management boggle him down, He gets frustrated with the people around him who sees MBA as a purpose of earning higher salary and getting superior designations and indulging in unneeded arrogance. He thinks this is not what he wanted to learn out of his MBA.

My review: It was an easy read and I completed in short span of just 3hours. I liked the way he named his chapters after names of the months. The book provides a handy story of a B-School. Revant shares his experience in the B school life with his friends, pursuit of his ideal woman, an observation of an education program called Vigyan Ashram, and a foreign exchange class in Germany. Along the way, he learns the real reason for obtaining an MBA. The book gives within reach information on MBA candidates around the world and a good idea of what earning an MBA is really all about.

Verdict: 2/5. The author needs to put more efforts on his language and usage of a few words. The narration was just run of the mill.

 The book was received as part of Reviewers Programme on The Tales Pensieve

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.

    Anything just done for money is never worthwhile…I guess we all need to learn it the hard way.
