    Aayush, a fresh engineering graduate, realizes that idling, snoozing, internet addiction and motorcycle spins don't really qualify as skills to build a successful career. Goaded by parents, trounced by top-achieving buddies and encouraged by stray incidents, Aayush takes a plunge into the dog-eat-dog rat race called CAT – a nationwide, competitive test to make it to the top business schools. What follows is a simple, everyday motley of events as Aayush enrolls himself at a CAT coaching center, where he comes across interesting characters, ¬including an eccentric tutor with a penchant for fancy dress and an exquisite temptress, Nakshatra. Set in the serene backdrop of Manipal, a student-dominated township in coastal Karnataka, CAT Race is a simple, short and comfortable tale that highlights the struggles and aspirations of every B-school aspirant, providing insightful yet light-hearted views on the many stages of successful enrollment to management institutes. CAT Race is reminiscent of the struggles that students across all streams of academics have inevitably undergone and is a tribute to the indecisions, unpreparedness, uncertainty, impudence and insouciance so characteristic of student life.

    Author Info
    • Hriday Ram Shenoy, a 30-something recliner-stuck dreamer, has the potential to look younger if he dyes his hair...which he tried a few times and gave up since he doesn't believe in making L'Oreal richer when there are a lot of local start-ups that can be encouraged with all that hair-color money – like the neighborhood biryani joint for instance. Faced with the Shakespearean dilemma of 'To B.E or not to B.E', right after class 12, he chose to B.E in Electronics and Communication and went on to do his MBA in Marketing and Systems. He currently works for an IT multinational and has had stints in marketing, innovation experience design and pre-sales. Off work, he dabbles in cryptic crosswords, classical piano, chess, design, movies, fantasy and sci-fi books and gaming. Currently, he lives somewhere between Hogwarts, Neverwhere, Middle Earth, The Matrix and Studio Ghibli with his Alienware gaming desktop and about 200 books. CAT Race is his first book.

    A pleasant read

    We have all known people who have taken CAT or other entrance exams and we have all known an Aayush, Nakshatra or Hansmukh - the main characters in CAT Race. Yet the brilliance of this book is in keeping the reader engaged completely, till the epilogue.

    Cat Race is wonderfully well-narrated book. The description of characters, events, scenery is refreshingly original with helpful doses of situational humour. The author's muse - Manipal, is described vividly and reminiscent of how Ruskin Bo...

    A fun read

    CAT Race has a little bit of everything that you’d want from a book—romance, suspense, and a how-to guide to figuring out life’s quirky questions. It is also a tourist’s guide to the student town of Manipal to boot!
    As you traverse through Aayush’s dilemma’s, frustrations, and triumps as he pursues his elusive CAT quest, you cannot help but turn the page to find out how he navigates yet another new hurdle. I, for one, especially enjoyed how, amidst all the drama, Aayush manages to discover a...

    A breezy story...

    A gripping, feel good, breezy story. The story didn’t pace down or drag anywhere, unlike many other books that may slack, at the start or the middle or have an abrupt and distasteful ending, this book kept me engaged all along, which was a delight.

    As the name suggests, the story is of an Engineering graduate (an student who was not placed), who had to decide on what next, in his life, and on finalizing that perceiving MBA and getting into one of the top business schools was the goal, and to...
