Congrats for ur debut book author..This book is a normal college life story with large dose of flirting,ambitious about carrier and studies, campus politics and maintaining the so called "cool or should i say casanova image"..From Deepankar's never say die attitude to his series of girlfriends , From Pooja's supportive aspect to Ritika and Sonali's viscous plan, From HR placement cell to Brand Committee, From "DahiHandi" To New years eve..From "Handling the tough situations with ease" to breaking up hearts...this book is "total campus masala"
Lessons Learnt :-
:-Never be over confident about urself, even if the deal is 100% sure never ever believe the buyer if ur a sales man till the monetary transactions is made...as u don't know wen will the stars play a trick on u..
:-Sometimes assumptions are the biggest enemies of mankind even if ur sure about any activity u should never ever assume (who knows they might turn into a reality some day :P)
:-Life is an unexpected ride sometimes it doesn't turn out the way u wanted so brace urself...do ur best and leave the rest
:-People in 21st century only believed in tit for tat and revenge is a dish, served for everyone..
:-The language used is very simple and understandable being a debut writer he is bang on where language is concerned
:- I just loved the attitude of Deep towards life (his never say die attitude, his ambitious and hardworking phase was very well described)
:-Characters were described well (Pooja was my favourite among all, way she supported deep was commendable)
:- Apart from printing errors and grammatical mistakes...The story Fails to connect any chords with me, though author has tried his best to keep the flow going but this story loses its pace n fails to keep us entertained till the end..
:- This story is way too much for me to accept as a female (i know its a tale n all but breaking hearts and making fun of love by saying every second girl i love u and all is not cool according to me) so i can say guys might like it as they can learn how to manage "3@ a time" (winks)
P.S :- All the best for ur next one ...

3 @ a Time is a MBA college based story written in First person by the protagonist Deepankar describing his tenure in the college and numerous affairs with girls . Book is the debut work of author and the Protagonist is portrayed as a Philander , Can say a Play Boy who is extremely popular in college and had relationship with so many , literally , so-many girls . He's portrayed as a laborious and never die attitude which keeps him popular among college crowd , either positive or negative , he's really popular . As the name suggest , 3 @ a Time , Protagonist had three girlfriends at a time in college and book revolves around the fact how he handle all of 'em on same time .
What I love most in this book is the scenario of DahiHandi where a muslim guy is portrayed as an active element in making the human pyramid which made the readers think about the Communal violence which aggravated many people during the riots , and was only started as a result of some dirty politics and was not hatred of the people . And Applause for author , for fulfilling his social duty by giving message of Religion Tolerance :)
One of the chapter begins with an interesting paragraph , which is what-reader-thinks part . Paragraph goes as " An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind ' were the words of father of the nation MK Gandhi , but in today's world every single person believes ,'An eye for an eye makes a blind person see the world '. People believed in tit for tat and revenge is a dish , serve hot for everyone ." So I'm yet to decide which Point of view is right , MK Gandhi's or Protagonist , so till then advantage of doubt goes to MK Gandhi .
While reading what I found difficult to chew is the fact that Protagonist too much smart and handsome that a lot of girls fell on him . Beside it , Author embedded the scenario of Raging but there's no criticism of this crime which swallow many innocent lives every year . And last point which I found Negative is the name of Girls , Sound quite similar and confusing . I found it bit confusing because with every chapter i found a new girl in initial chapters .
Otherwise , its a classy debut which is filled with lot of humour and the last 50 pages are really hooking , foiling of a devious plan with the help of someone which is never expected .
