Will his ego ever let him go back to Vishesh? Will any new path open up for him? Or will he have to make his path on his own? 

Story in a nutshell- 

For the sake of my ego is the story about a young boy named Aryan and his college life. Life is all about making memories. What memories does Aryan make in this college days? Does he find success at confessing his love, Tania? Is he successful at making his band? Or does his passion for music die? 


Nowadays, most authors are into writing college romances. The same old stories are presented with some twists and in a new jacket. I wondered if this book too was belonging to the above mentioned category. I started reading the book and realised that it is not just another story of college romance. There's something more to it. 

Aryan, the protagonist begins his story of college life from the fresher's party and walks us through the four years of his engineering days. He talks about his crush Tania, the band - Vishesh, his grades and his passion for music. Apart from Aryan's passion for music, everything in this novel seems like that old wine in the new bottle. The simple narration of this book and lucid language makes this book an easy read. The incidents have been rightly placed. The reader knows about the year of Aryan's engineering unlike some books which talk about first year on first page and last year on tenth. However, I felt that some incidents were exaggerated out of proportion. It read as if the authors had stuffed some incidents to make the story appear lengthy. The story isn't one if the kind but it gives out message of never giving up on something you love. It tells you to follow your passion with dedication and cross all the hurdles you encounter on your way. 

I rate: 
Cover: 2/5 
Characters: 3/5 
Story: 2.5/5 

My overall rating for 'For the sake of my ego' is 3/5 stars.

Buy this book on Amazon.
