An Army Commander’s Take …

I was a little lucky to lay my hands on ‘ MEDIOCRE BUT ARROGANT ‘ authored by your honour.

Nevertheless once we are there, the sculpturs are there to give shape & convert the novices into the architects of nation of tomorrow. Maintains reader’s excitement […]

Anubhuti Sharma of Hewitt, US wrote to say

Sumita Ambasta’s Review of the Book

In that, Abhijit has succeeded in examining what exactly is the role of higher education in a society that values material success of exterior kinds, involving degrees, wealth, corporate positions, and fame. And he does it while making one laugh and cry, in a world that is funny, erotic, irreverent and colorful in ways we have never viewed it.

Moneycontrol.com Review

The book has it all – from the college wisecrack, to the guy who plays Bob Dylan on his guitar, to the class hottie that every guy is trying to woo, bad hostel food and the works. But just in case you thought the title reflected the caliber of MBA graduates, the author himself a human resources graduate from XLRI rushes to explain.
