I picked up the book because it had a fascinating title. Keeping up to name, the book speaks about Vippasna , Marijuana , and the “F” word umpteen times . How a Yale graduate working in an Investment Banking firm gives up his job and comes to study in India at the prestigious Business School IIM Banglore. The purpose was to rediscover himself and be a part of something which he was made for . But contrary to his dreams he meets two guys , An IITian (The Most Bastrad species on earth) and a Kargil warrior. The group can rightly be named as the D-Group .Marijuana was the path they took to fight the peer pressure and the uncountable quizzes . Between these, the book raises some basic questions which haunt us everyday . Though the answers are varied but ultimately the conclusion is doing what one pleases. After that it depends from person to person when one realizes what he wanted to do . Finally the Yale graduate gets answers to his questions and he realizes at last what he had come for and that he needed dope no more.
One of the interesting lines from the book,”I smoke it in protest man , Marijuana exists naturally as a plant . Who is the government to ban God’s creation? It’s like me wanting to make potatoes illegal because I don’t like their taste.”
Another good thing of the book is that the cover is very well designed.
