5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully narrated documentary of India's pre engineering system 14 Feb. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Aditya does a really great job in telling the story of our Pre-Engineering system. He makes us think and see the naked truth about this dream we are chasing, and how it can have some really harsh consequences on the kids who don't make it. The book reflected everything I had seen and all that I felt in my journey through the process of aspiring to become an engineer and finally becoming one. I read the whole book in one day. Very well worth the purchase.
5.0 out of 5 stars It's A MUST READ if you're an Indian Engineer 20 April 2016
By Nikhil Gadre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If I would have read this book before taking engineering, I promise I would never have chosen to do engineering.
A guy who has got 72% in engineering, did not get placed in a core company, the only offer he got is from a call centre. You can imagine what kind of a guy (popat, rattu) he must be. Doing engineering in India is really hopeless. You would be hearding Engineering ko scope hai. Ghanta scope hai.
Being an engineer I agree with Adhitya : ME GHANTA ENGINEER.

First of all, I would like to appreciate Adhitya's efforts for the amount of Research done for the content in the book.

If you're a Engineer read this book.
If you're doing Engineering read this book.
If you're planning to do engineering read this book.
If you're in 10th, 11th or 12th read this book.
If you're a parent whose kid is doing engineering read this book.
If you're a parent whose kid is in 11th or 12th or you're planning to enroll him in an engineering college read this book.
If you've put your kid in IIT coaching class, read this book, it'll give you an insight to what your child is going to face in the following years.
I myself am an engineer and agree 100% to what is written in the book.
Really engineering is the obsession of Indians, we are the exporters of engineers.

The book will always be in my collection and I am going to lend it who wants to do engineering and open his eyes.
It's a fantastic read, Good Job Adhitya and best of luck for your future endeavours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice book, cant put it down till you finish it! 12 Jan. 2016
By Avinash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have gone through the excruciating experience of being a needle in the haystack that is the Indian Engineering System, or have known someone to do so, i would highly recommend you giving this book a read! It takes you on a compelling ride across the major engineering hubs of the country, highlighting fascinating insights and anecdotes about some of the more celebrated (and a few unfortunate) engineers and integral figures who have helped shape this highly rewarding yet much maligned obsession. Its definitely a wonderful story written by a budding, talented author who managed to bring a smile to the face of a fellow "victim"!
5.0 out of 5 stars An Extremely well written Book! Great Work Guys!! 21 Jan. 2016
By Devashish Chandekar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This Book is an interesting read on Engineering, one of the biggest monster in India's Education system. The details mentioned in the book tells us how obsessed the people in India are when it comes to Engineering. I could actually relate to all those instances mentioned in the book right from the events in Kota to the Institutes in Hyderabad. I know many friends who went there. I would say that the author has done a great deal in bringing out the detailed intricacies and his hard work is all evident once you start reading the book. It was so interesting that I happened to finish it in one go. The writing style, the easy flowing pace of the book and the minutest details it just adds up. I would recommend everyone to read this one and specially if you are an Engineer, you ought to read it. Great Work Guys!!
5.0 out of 5 stars The saga of Engineering! 22 May 2016
By Sneha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author is on point when he mentions being surprised that nobody has ever tried to write a book on this subject before. I would've never thought that the saga of "Engineering" could be so entertaining. The credit goes to the author who put in a great amount of research to collect facts, figures and interesting stories from all around the country. This book made me understand the real reason of why me and millions of others like me are engineers today. If you are an engineer, from India, this book is a MUST READ. It will leave a mark in your heart!
