The Class of 2006: Sneak Peek into the Misadventures of the Great Indian Engineering Life‘ consists of 18 different episodes, each with a Learning Box, and is definitely a good read to reminisce the times spent in college, especially for MBA, Engineering college students and aspirants.

Speaking about the book and the idea behind it, Mr. Akash Kansal said, “The book is a new age fiction book written with a self-help bias and capturing the changing trends of content consumption by the younger generation of India as well as globally too. The book aims to cover the different real-time life experiences and stages of college life which seem very usual but unknowingly impact our character DNA and mindset. The book will give you a major throwback to your own college life experiences with your fellow classmates and life-time friends. Not to miss a comedy drama ahead!

Speaking at the launch on some of the stories depicted in the book, R. Madhavan said, “I really resonate with the idea of college life being a key pillar in work life and career both. Students should read this book because they have been deprived of the learnings of living in a college community due to the Pandemic life. I see the book converting into a movie and becoming a big success like 3 Idiots.”

The book will be available to millions of readers worldwide through Amazon (amzn.to/3qwiGLt) and has been economically priced for maximum reach. In India, the e-book will be available at INR 99 through a special trial offer. The book had received positive response within the pre-order stage and got figured among top 50 books on Amazon within 2 days of its pre-launch.

We are really buoyed by the positive response to the Kindle version and are in active talks with leading publishing houses for the paperback version. There are more seasons in the pipeline, and we are also exploring the option of converting it into a web-series soon,” Mr. Kansal concluded.
