The 3 Mistakes Of My Life

Er, this is actually the title of a book by Chetan Bhagat. The IIT/IIM grad's third book deals with the typical problems faced by today's youth in India. The three principle characters of the book are Govind, Ishaan and Omi, the 3 boys from Ahmedabad who start a cricket shop to earn their bread.

The story revolves around the struggles which these youngsters have to surmount in order to pursue their dreams. The plot includes the real life events such as Bhuj earthquake which rocked Gujarat on the Republic day, the Godhra train massacre and the subsequent riots which resulted in loss of life and property and the historic Indian Cricket team's victory against the Australians at Kolkata.

The 3 boys also find a promising cricketer in the neighborhood. They take this boy, Ali to Australia so that Ali can train along with the world champions. However things begin to take the turn for the worse as Govind falls in love with Ishaan's sister Vidya which brings their friendship to a grinding halt. As the story moves at a frantic pace one of the primary characters gets killed and then the story reaches its predictable conclusion.

Although the book is peppered with romance, struggles and aspirations of modern day youth, this books comes a distant second when compared to the phenomenal "Five Point Someone". But having said that its definitely worth a read. Priced at 95 rupees it does not leave a big hole in your wallet.
Truly yours,
Cosmic Freak
