Today’s youth is open to trying new things. They are more aware of the world and are not scared of taking risk. Definition of success and achievement is different for different people. Today’s generation make their own definitions and work towards making their lives more meaningful.
Confused Bastards is a book to inspire the youth who want to start something new or want to be entrepreneurs.
What happens when three entrepreneurs initiate a start-up which shocks the nation?
Aakash, Jai and Vivek are mostly usual in their ways, except for some. Struggling with their own inner conflicts as well as the cruel world outside, they decide to show the world their true potential. To make it big. But how? They become the voice of the nation by starting up an online platform where people can upload unabashed, unapologetic videos, venting out their angst against people, politics, bosses, lovers, taboos, or just about anything. Even the founders themselves.
The platform spreads like wild fire. But when has fire doused without burning a few!
Confused Bastards is not just a witty, gritty, fast-paced journey of three friends, it’s also an intolerant story for a tolerant country!
My Review –
Confused Bastards is all about three friends Akash, Jai and Vivek, who come from different backgrounds and who dream of establishing a successful business. It is a story of the struggle today’s youth go through to achieve something in their lives. Every struggle comes with confusion and conflicts. Every individual comes across a point where there is no return. An individual has no option but to sort things and relationships and move forward.
This book is about these situations and there solutions. It revolves around an idea by these boys which talks about creating a form where people can vent their frustrations on various topics.
The book is written for the youth and keeping in mind the way they would like to read it and so the language is very simple. The book is fast paced and the story is engaging. The over use of Hindi in the book was a complete turn-off for me.
Overall I rate this book a 3/5. I think that it does provide a view of what today’s youth is going through and their daily dilemmas.
