My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Chetan Bhagat has delivered what is expected of him a readable book (if you have liked his earlier ones). This time it covers education and how the corrupt politicians are using education institutions to make money on the sly.
The story is told from the perspective of the protagonist who is another failure (relatively speaking) in his academics, but then ties up with a politician to get his land from his uncle who has cheated him and his parents of the land which is rightfully theirs.
He goes on to build a grand college on that land with the help of the same politician and starts making more money than his peers who have done academically better than him.
His peer takes on the politician through a newspaper and goes on to lose his job.
In the process the protagonist and his peer fall in love with the same girl who only professes friendship with the protagonist much to his ire. In the end he sacrifices the girl to his peer out of remorse of having set up the college using illicit means and himself becomes a drunkard.
On the whole a typical readable Chetan Bhagat book.
