Any additions that you can do to lighten it up?

i agree with gautam...thoda corporate lag raha hai like its a novel of only the job interview days...a bit more of spice reqd.......i suggest a pic of ganauri and a's eyes competing for space......(btw now i know where my tie and pen went..lol)

While the cover looks classy, I think it doesn't "really" offer anything new. I really really liked the more personalized sketches that I saw in your "dinghy workroom" :) There's so much more to the novel than the typical symbols of a business school (tie, glasses etc..) Yeah..some color to the cover would be a great idea. I can't wait to read the book when it comes out. Allll the best to you! :)

Use the sketches on the cover. stingy Bashonto is droll, Haathi on the motorbike comes a good second. Of course, Ayeesha's eyes are exquisite - very romantic.
College doesn't come alive until some wicked nicknames stick.
Your note pad postings capture some of that rascally spirit of our younger days. Makes me nostalgic.

The book cover is apt to the theme of the novel.It is in sync with the corporate profile the biz school kids aspire after.However, the watch seem a little odd with the present day set of yuppies who sport Rolex or Cartier or at the most fashionable foreign brands. Does anyone sport a pocket watch however expensive and fashionable it is?

The color could have been a bit more bright and the name prominently displayed on the top. However, though first impression counts, it is the content of the book (and of course the price!)that matters in the long run.
Looking forward to it Abhijit.
