Anything for you, Ma’am

After the success of FPS & ON@TCC, publishers have started focussing on the youth segment by bringing out books in the sub Rs. 100 category. “Anything for you, Ma’am” is one such book by an IIT student. The author Tushar Raheja is a final year student of IIT Delhi. If this trend catches on, we could see more publishers (atleast the Indian ones) signing up first time authors (especially the 20-something authors).

  • Any ideas why the publishers are calling the book An IITian's Love Story?

    Never realised IITs education also got something to do in literature field.

    And what's next...An IIM Alumni's Album ??

  • @RaajK,
    Veguli has answered your question.

    @Veguli,
    Thanks

    @Sheks,
    This is not a review...

    @Bishu,
    Just makes it that much more easier to market it. IIT being an undergrad place, it is much more easier to depict a love story :-)

  • The cover art is horrendous and if I were to judge this book by its cover, then I may not have the kindest words for it.

    Also, why is an IIT tag considered an asset for budding authors when clearly creative writing is not something that is encouraged in engineering schools?

  • Yes Patrix, the cover is not upto the mark. It probably gives some indication about the quality of the book.
