Review: An Indian Loser

An Indian Loser An Indian Loser by Uzma Hameed
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Indian education system badly needs overhaul. It relies too much importance on marks and academic achievement. Average middle-class family has no other means to succeed and hence they push their children into rat race.

Peeyush (should it not be Piyush?) is from and average middle-class family who is under tremendous pressure to crack IIT joint entrance exam. He fails and has to run away. Will he succeed in the end or will simply give up?

The story is coming of age of Piyush. How he overcome all the odds and beats the moribund education system. This is a must red for parents also. Some tight editing is needed. Overall a great effort by Uzma. 3/ 5 stars.
