Five point someone-What not to do at IIT.

Reading this book by Chetan Bhagat is bound to send everyone on a nostalgic trip down memory lane, reminiscing their college days-or what you call the best years of one’s life…

This story of three friends and how their average GPAs propel them into the throes of mediocrity, an abyss from where there is no return…Their 5 point GPAs come in the way of everything-their love, their friendships, their future.

Bordering on humour at times, the book dwells on four years of college life and how securing high grade points can take a toll on the quality of the best years of campus life known to mankind.

The message is clear-having a low GPA does not make anyone a low performer, nor does excessive access to books and hence higher grades, create a better human specimen.What life offers one eventually is a function of the right opportunities at the right time, the willingness to take risks coupled with a significant level of hard work and above all…a GOOD MEASURE OF LUCK!!!!!.

College years bring out nostalgic memories all right. Whether at IIT or or elsewhere, one should be concerned of bringing out one's inner potential- that is the literal meaning of the word Education- Make your passion your profession
