What a Loser - book blurb



The book is a Cowbelt Comedy set in the North Campus of Delhi University.
This laughathon delves deep into the zone of satire. It attempts to bring millions of students from the Cowbelt states of UP, Bihar, MP, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan who arrive DU with the borrowed dream from their parents, of making it BIG into the IAS. Interestingly set in the post Liberalization phase of the 1990s India, it’s a fresh take on the issues revolving round the issue of one’s ‘identity’.


Pandey Anil Kumar Sinha (PAKS) comes to Delhi with precisely three things: One, his jaded old trunk full of Sattu and Achaar; two, a borrowed dream of becoming an IAS officer from his clerk father; and three, to sleep with a milky-white Punjabi girl. However, PAKS’s goals begin to change when he falls in love, enroll for English classes and find cool friends.
Then suddenly he is pushed to the forefront of university elections and he becomes a hero!
PAKS in living his ultimate dream…or is he?
What will happen next? Will he ever get what he really wants?

  1. mostly Bihari like Mr. Sinha and us do the very same thing..Actually we hail from those place where girls are not seen so well independent and frank,it allures us.Again tuti futi english version of Delhites gal,their andaaj captivates us,and we are ready to dedicate our career,life,future on such spurious things.Again wine shop become our center gradually.Ultimately we find nowhere.So time to meditate,beware of university politics and shining light of Delhi.It damages a lot career.Next is yor wishhhh..
