It Is Easier To Divorce Your Spouse But You
Cannot Even DIVORCE Your Ph.D. supervisor...
What, if you are a hardworking student, if you are an energetic research scholar, if you are a teacher with candour, if you plan to open a paan-shop roadside holding a Doctorate in Physics? Can you think of a cool life in India having enough money, to have your daily bread, to feed someone needy? Definitely NOT! Life of Anuj, an unpaid, diligent and industrious research-scholar, enchanted to become a professor, spans at three institutes. Politics in the campus, delay of salary, cavalier attitude of fellow-workers, shenanigans of student-leaders, supercilious behaviour of seniors and squandering of money etc lead him to affliction.
Would he become a professor at a University? Will his research papers published in international journals of repute, provide him daily bread? What are the real parameters for selection as a professor in Indian Universities? Why should one study hard?
This gallant novel illuminates the rife and real facts of higher education through the voice of a research-scholar cum teacher. The vicissitudes of life at Lucknow, a well known 'City of Nawabs', give glimpses on how it is losing its heart culture of manners and etiquettes (Tameez and Tahzeeb), which is the case of whole country, though.
