    Description

    Keep Off The Grass covers the story of a 25 year old Yale valedictorian who chooses marijuana over a million dollars, and traces his story from there.

    Summary Of The Book

    Keep Off The Grass is about a brilliant 25 year old Non Resident Indian (NRI), who is stuck with an identity crisis. A Yale graduate who makes half a million every year as an investment banker at Wall Street, Samrat Ratan chooses to return to India to discover his roots,happiness, and everything else that seems elusive.

    His quest in his homeland starts with one of the most popular business schools in India, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Bangalore. Contrary to the person he was before he enrolled himself into IIM-Bangalore, his grades and self-esteem fall as he gets high on marijuana frequently. His life becomes nothing less than a roller-coaster ride thereon.

    Samrat remains perpetually stoned and experiences bizarre adventures, including sharing a smoke with and being almost consumed by flesh-eating Aghori saints on the banks of the river Ganges in Benares, meditating on the foothills of the mighty Himalayas, and indulging in a one-night stand with a Danish hippie in Dharamshala.

    This hilarious and introspective debut novel by Karan Bajaj traces Samrat’s journey and keeps the readers intrigued till the very end.

    Keep Off The Grass was a semi-finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and was also nominated for the Indiaplaza Golden Quill Award.The film rights of the book have been sold to Mosaic Media Group, and Ben Rekhi has been signed up as the director for it.

    Title itself suggest the book content, but one may be able to understand that only after turning all pages.So go for it.

    Age Group = Youngsters.
    Adult Book = As some of the text is not suitable for the minor readers,hence I gave it Adult Book tag.
    Language used = Mostly simple English (keeping dictionary nearby would ease reading for novice)

    Advise = Go to next line only when you understand the previous one, as the author crafted each and every word precisely. Try to finish complete chapter in single, continuous attempt. Otherwise you will loose the link. Each chapter is on average about 25 pages.

    What I like...

    Interesting and fast paced

    I have recently bought this book after reading its many interesting reviews. I must say I did not repent the decision. It is a nice and fast paced story with few insights into a life in an University. It goes through the life of an American guy who has come to IIMB and to India in general for some soul searching. I loved the ending as much as the beginning. It is not too cliched or boring at any point of time and that is the best part of the book.

    Go for it with no second thought.

    The hostels and their inhabitants

    You might have noticed that guys who have lived in a hostel at some point of time have a better understanding of life than those who have not. There is a clear difference between these two categories of people. Similar in the way, that, army personals are more disciplined than the civilians.

    This book, tells you the why of it. Those who have experienced hostel life, will be able to better appreciate and understand this book.

    This is not Chetan Bhagat type masala/stupid heroism/love story n...

    Fast Paced & Nicely written

    Wow!! Just finished reading 'Keep Off The Grass' in straight 2 sittings. After a longtime, felt good after reading this fiction. Now a days, lots of crappy chicklits/light-readings are coming over the market, but this one stands out in the crowd.

    Very well written from the young budding author, I liked his style of writing & that too his debut novel have come really good. Hats off to Karan as he has a long way to go. I'm gonna try out his other book, 'Johnny Gone Down' as well.

    This book ...

    excellent pageturner !!

    I read it in one sitting. But i cant explain why i liked it. on every page i felt something interesting will happen on next page. This quest for something interesting lead me to last page. But sometimes journey is more pleasant than the destination !! May be thats the case with this book.

    Extra half star if you are a management student !!

    An Education

    Yes, this book is an education in itself. The way in which Mr. Bajaj articulated the restless feeling is superb. I think these are the kind of stories that are actually going to create a genre in modern literature. The best part? You are going to laugh your heads off!
    I strongly recommend 'Johnny Gone Down' which I also classify as an education.
