There is no money in being a scientist,' Pinto's mother advises him. 'So it's better that you become an engineer or a doctor.'
About the Author
Rajeev Saxena did his Bachelor of Technology from IIT Kanpur in 1994. He currently lives in Dallas, USA. His career in information technology with a large international company has provided him with opportunities to visit a multitude of cultures and countries.
Saxena's early days were spent in a small town in the Aligarh District of Uttar Pradesh, after which he moved between several villages, big towns, and districts in India, all of which he called home. His travels reinforced his growing belief that many people everywhere struggle daily to meet basic needs that others take for granted.
He eventually found his way to the metropolises in India, and then around the world with several IT companies. Places such as Barbados in in the Caribbean, Johannesburg in South Africa, Mexico City in Mexico and Nassau in Bahamas reminded him the most of the country he grew up in.
From the days of living on farms in his grandparents' village, he has been in touch with his roots throughout his life. Charity and voluntary work is also his passion. He loves providing free entertainment to his kids by singing old Hindi songs on karaoke. His wife loves that too, not because she particularly likes his voice, but because it makes their children laugh.

This is the story of Rajat who is commonly named as Pinto. He is a scientist and a social worker who might be a politician too. He hails from middle class background that was home tutored in his earlier years. However, he later studies in IIT and becomes a scientist working in MIT. Unromantic Pinto meets Lavanya who moves on to become his life partner. Pinto with his new mechanism wants to do something for the society which begins his road towards joining politics. During all this when Pinto is about to reach the peak of success, Lavanya leaves him suddenly without telling him anything. That brings in the curiosity to read further. This story has many aspects like love story of a scientist, curiosity and determination of a middle class boy, social worker turning into a politician and a lot of ideas.
I loved that the book had some of the elements discussing about my city which made me feel connected. Afterall if you are reading a fiction story that is happening in your city, you will surely smile. The title is brilliant and apt for the story. This scientist Pinto has too many ideas. Narration was good however I felt bored at times when there were too many descriptions about the machines. The cover was good but I did not like its colour combinations. It seemed dull due to the colour. The narration was good.
I recommend this book to everyone who loves reading irrespective of the genre because it has elements of various genres.
Cover- 3.5 / 5 (The colours really disappointed me)
Plot- 4 / 5
Narration- 4 / 5
Title- 4.5 / 5

From the beginning the character of "Pintu" is well picturized. The author created the character of 'Pinto' with all his efforts.
This book not only describes the story of a curious boy, how he become extraordinary through struggle but a lot more!
The author pointed out the problems of our country (society) and its norms with proper description. All the points are well researched!
And not only the problems but the author described its solutions also in a very good manner. The author used lots of examples and stories to make the readers understand every point properly and it made the description more logical. The storytelling process is just extraordinary!
The book can make the readers think and had given lots of question and the scenario of our society.
The cover is totally appropriate.
The language is simple and easy to understand.
Really it's an amazing work by the author Rajeev Saxena!

Pinto Has An Idea by Rajeev Saxena is a contemporary fiction. The book is an amalgamation of science, romance, thrill, emotions and politics. The major theme of the book is “An Idea Can Change Your Life.” Since childhood days, Rajat (who was called Pinto) was keen into new research and always thought out of the box. His ideas were always innovative and extremely different from people around him. Despite being a brilliant student and a successful person he never gave away his nationality and patriotism and returned back to his country to serve its country. The trends of USA did not change his feeling of patriotism. She falls in love with Lavanya but due to the changes in his perspective, their marriage life begins to fade away. What will be the fate of the couple? The book was written in a simple language and formal language. The scientist Pinto stands out as an inspiration to all the Indians. This book also arouses the feeling of patriotism towards one’s country. The title of the book is something very eye-catching that tells the reader that the book has something new to tell. The cover of the book suggests that the book has a strong connection with science. The blurb should have been a little brief and not so lengthy as the blurb is revealing almost the entire story. I liked the character of Pinto and I also consider him as a role model. The storyline of the book was outstanding and unique. The presentation style of the book was flawless. Overall, it was a very unique and addictive read.
Writing and Presentation: 5/5
Overall Rating: 4.7/5
