NLSIU 4th year writes Bhagat-style novel about life at law school

A fourth-year law student from NLSIU Bangalore has penned a novel called “Join the Bar” in the vein of Chetan Bhagat’s IIT-based fiction “Five Point Someone” and narrates three law students’ lives and experiences during their study of law.

The 20-year old Brajesh Rajak whose book will be published by Universal Law Publishing talks about life at a law school from the perspective of a student coming from a small town. The book is believed to contain vivid narrations ranging from the dilemmas students face about their career path, their campus love stories and other tales, according to the Times of India.

"I had the climax mapped out. As for characters and incidents, it's just a modified version of what I saw around me. For instance, I found it very difficult to understand the lectures. All the English I've learnt is after coming to the institute," the TOI quoted Rajak.

"When I came to Bangalore from Begamganj near Bhopal, it was a culture shock for me. I was surprised at the freedom students have, including the access to alcohol."

Rajak said he did not read Bhagat’s books on purpose so his style of writing would not be influenced.
