Aarti is a pretty dumb gal who gets confused in every aspects of her life.. How can someone be so confused about their lives, and yet were shown to be strong and solid. As Gopal gives in to the system, and Raghav fights it, who will win? Raghav decides to become a journalist and pursue a career in a newspaper publishing house. What Young India Wants They know they wont get in. Hence, the same coaching-class cycle would begin again.
While a handful accomplish their dreams others sink into disaster. The author stated that the novel is based on the "rampant corruption" apparent in the Indian youth educational system, with the choice of Varanasi as a setting emerging through "a special connection to the city" following his visit. I thought the contrast would be interesting. The city also has a lot of character. This book follows the story of two friends separated by their ambitions and passions yet connected by their love for the same girl.
While Gopal, who has experienced the harsh realities of life due to poverty aspires to become rich, his friend Raghav is a boy from a well-off family who desires to "revolutionize" India by fighting corruption.
Aarti and Gopal have been childhoeep but platonic relationship. As teenagers, Gopal pushes Aarti for more, but she later reveals that she was not ready for anything. Gopal moves to another city Kota , to join reputed coaching classes to help with his ranking. Raghav becomes a celebrity in the town after he passes the Indian Institute of Technology entrance exam.
Aarti falls for Raghav during Gopal's absence. Aarti and Gopal chat online, and Aarti reveals her relationship to Gopal, who is heartbroken.
His father dies shortly after. Raghav decides to become a journalist and pursue a career in a newspaper publishing house. Meanwhile, Gopal is contacted by a politician who wishes to build an engineering college on the highly valuable land that Gopal's family owns.
Gopal agrees to the deal, and joins the system of corruption in India in order to build the college with the politician's black money. He is tired of "giving white envelopes" to officials but has no other choice. Raghav, now a journalist, exposes the corruption-funded college and is eventually fired from the newshouse.
Raghav starts his own newspaper, Revolution , to "change the world" and expose the corrupt system in India. After another expose, Raghav's newspaper is shut down by politicians and thugs, and he loses almost everything. Raghav is still passionate about his activism and forgets about Aarti. They are still unmarried. Aarti and Gopal reconnect and often meet after work in coffee shops and other places, unbeknownst to Raghav.
Gopal books a hotel room in the same hotel that Aarti works. Gopal seduces Aarti who returns his love, giving in to years of suppressed feelings. Aarti falls in love with Gopal, and begins to cheat on Raghav.
Gopal then decides to disclose to Raghav that him and Aarti are a couple. Gopal goes to Raghavs office but a chance encounter with a poor farmer and his kid who had come to Raghav for help shakes him up and he realizes the folly of money, power and wealth.
He decides to let go of Aarti perhaps realizing they were never meant to be together and Raghav would always remain Aartis love. He with the help of politician invites two prostitutes as a part of his birthday surprise and ensures Aarti witnesses it, making her hate him forever. He anonymously helps Raghav get a job, and suggests he become a politician MLA to bring about the "revolution" he desired. Aarti and Raghav get married. Start on.
