About the Book: Revolution 2020
From the best-selling Author of Five Point Someone and One night @ the Call Center, a story of corruption, love and the meaning of success, from the heartland of India
Childhood friends Gopal, Raghav and Aarti struggle to find success and love in Varanasi. Gopal comes from a poor family and cannot manage admission into the best engineering colleges in the country. Heartbroken, he moves to Kota for a year to study for exams. Raghav is from a well-to-do family, gets a good rank in JEE and joins IIT-BHU, one of India's top institutions. He sets out to fulfil his goal: to become a journalist. Aarti's is a powerful, well-connected family, and she wants to be an air hostess.
Both men have great potential. One wants to use his intelligence to realize the modern Indian dream; making money. The other wants to create a revolution. What's more, they both love the same girl. And she seems to love them both, in turn.
As Gopal and Raghav compete to succeed, they both realize the power of corruption. Gopal is appointed director of a new engineering college in Varanasi with the help of MLA Shukla, an unscrupulous politician; fittingly, Gopal builds it on the disputed land of his uncle. Raghav, in the meanwhile, completes his engineering degree and joins newspaper Dainik as an intern. Discovering Shukla's wrongdoings, he reveals his misdeeds in public.
Who will win, in love and the war against corruption?
