The reader will baffle you and have you speechless in the end.


An exquisite masterpiece by a person who loves to write.


The intro in the back of the books states that it is about a guy LUV KHURANA (a very cliched Punjabi name if you ask me) who does three things in the make

Falls in a one sided love with his classmate
Runs after position of placement committee president
Starts a campus venture Ul-Tee
Buys metal bed sheets to avoid getting murdered in sleep by his brawny roommate
What it actually does?

Combines what this generation needs in a book with everything that is good and jolly.

Apart from going over the above aspects it makes you laugh. And that is a novelty if you ask me. I’m someone who has a book if I’m on a plane, during duty hours or when I have been sent to rather unwillingly to babysit. Yes I love reading. So I am uniquely qualified to know if a writer loves to write or not. I’ve read novels where the writer puts down words just purely for the sake of writing. Oh but how Sambhav Khetarpal redeems the good name of Indian writers. He has written the book purely out of his love for making us laugh. I started reading this when I was in bed sick (I’m all better now yeah thanks for the wishes) and I was still laughing silly. My mother even came by my room to check if the disease causing microbes had left my colon and invaded the blood brain barrier.

The novel starts with introduction. Yeah all novels do. I know that. Duh. But have you ever read the introduction of any? No eh? Read this one’s.

I was particularly forced to, I’ll be honest, by the shouty capitals. And boy was I impressed. The author has the nerve to call out to(I hope it is all fictional) the actual Luv Khurana who he says he stole the dairy from. Did I mention this book is a compilation of dairy entries? And I was hooked.

I had to finish the book.

The author so veraciously portrays what goes around in the mind of a 23 year old freshly out of engineering, boy joining a tier II MBA school only because he couldn’t get into any of the IIMs as the AC was off in the exam center and he had to pee, so naturally couldn’t concentrate on solving the mcqs (Let us be honest. It happens to all of us).

The sorcery that he does with his words is beyond beautiful. I was sitting there ever so eager to turn the page as you may be. Every page was better than the precious. He had me thinking what is going to happen from the start. Never did I think of giving up and switching on Netflix. Most books have us hooked for the climax. Most authors rather get us agog about the book towards the mid of rather the later third of the book. Sambhav will have you wrapped around his little finger not even from the start of the novel but rather from the introduction and I am not exaggerating.

I’m not going to go more into the details of the book because I don’t want to start giving out spoilers. And I really don’t want to.

Can you just run off and buy the book already?

Here this is the link.


This isn’t an actual account of what the author does and who he is but rather what I gleaned about him from the book as you know I’m fairly intuitive. 😉 also because I never really understood the point of putting down a biodata of the writer here when anyone can check his instagram handle. Duh.

He is the kind of person who probably was the star of his group. The MEME guy. I am absolutely sure if he could have he would have used gifs in the book but since we aren’t that advanced yet he makes do with his words.

A very simple yet unique approach to writing that you won’t learn from any workshop but develop from years of cracking rib ticklers.

Need I babble more or are you already convinced about reading the book?

Story: 3.5/5

Writing 4.5/5

Sticking to the genre?: hell yeah 5/5

Just so people can stop searching through my rambling and get straight to business

Link to buy the book. (Click on link *facepalm*)

P.S. I tried to keep the review under 600 words but as usual I can’t. Have I ever?

Book Title: I too had an MBA!
Author: Sambhav Khetarpal
Format: Paper Back
Total Number of Pages: 368
Publisher: Horizon Books

Book Title:
The book title ‘I too had an MBA' gives the reader a clear idea that the book is going to be a journey of a person who might be the protagonist of the story who is an MBA graduate.

Book Cover :
The book cover is so very colorful and interesting. The images on the book cover randomly placed with a bright yellow colored background looks refreshing. Those little images look almost like 3D objects. A very beautiful cover indeed.

Reading other person's personal diary is a very bad habit !!!!

But the author has broke this rule in a very elegant and curious manner.

Everyone must have experienced some delightful moments and the most saddest moments during college life. Though the college life is the first stepping stone towards the larger picture of life, the time between end of the college and the first job usually for the people who want to pursue their studies further is a fantastic ride. Post graduation as technically it's called acts like a bridge between professional life and a power packed professional life !

There will be some many incidents during this phase where there comes a confusion if to act like a college student or a professional with a degree already. This is also the perfect time to grow as a complete person with a sense of responsibility and more maturity. Well this is not the only way to grow, but this is one of the finest ways!

The complete book is a day to day experience of an MBA student that is very close to one's life, relatable and real. Humor in its best form is the highlight of the entire book. Readers who are already MBA graduates can revisit their life or readers who are pursuing an MBA course at present can relate to every word in the book.

Perfection in characterization is excellent.

The narration of the story is funny, engaging and entertaining.

Language and Vocabulary:
Simple grammar and language makes the reading more realistic.

My Final Verdict—
A perfect diary to read and have a good smile!

Book title: 4/5
Book Cover: 4/5
