Its written by an Indian author Chetan Bhagat. I first read his book Two states then got addicted to his reading. I like the way he describes everything in simple English as if its meant for school children.

The characters are three ordinary men who starts a business venture and strive to make it big. They are the owners of a sports goods store. They have their own fears and philosophies in life. Omi fears he will end up being the priest of the temple. Ishan fears he will never be able to live his dreams of being a cricketer through Ali. Govind appears focused and ambitious though. They all have simple life until Bhuj earthquake and the Godhra riots turns up. People will go mad and in the name of religion they will start  behaving like mad animals.

Romance is part of this book too. Govind falls in love with Ishan’s sister, under a very strict condition where he can not tell that to anyone.  Beautifully, the true events are molded into the story which makes it feel real but somewhere you feel its true fiction because its not completely explained either.

Mistakes are part of life. Its important that how well we deal with them and over come to live the desired life we want. Miatakes are ways to learn a new way to succeed in my opinion. Worth reading it once.

    I have read all of Chetan Bhagat’s books, except the latest one – Revolution 2020. But to be honest, The Three Mistakes of My Life was my least favourite, out of all his books. But yeah, good for a one-time read.
