The book opens up with a train journey from kanpur to Delhi in which the author meets a beautiful girl who promises to tell him a story on the condition that he will make it into his second book. Initially the author appears hesitant but later he accepts her request. The story is told through the eyes of one of the 6 call centre employees, Shyam Mehra.
My Rating. After almost 6 months of not reading any book , I read this book a few days back. I must say comparing this to Five point someone is not cool , as this book does not deal with the students , although it represents the youth of the country. The new character in this story is none other than God. The preface includes a train journey by Chetan Bhagat from IIT Kanpur to Delhi where he meets a beautiful girl who narrates him this story provided he makes the story , his second book. The book then starts with the Shyam , as first person — who tells the readers about his misfortunes as a call centre employees.
