This very first line reminds me of the new perception the world is reluctantly trying to adopt of India as a geeky or a scientific nation, as opposed to the recently popular one of a place of call centres and healing ashrams and the age old one of a mystical land of snake charmers and naked saints. To begin with Saini is forced to explain the title of her book. In the past to be a geek meant something of an oddball.
For me one of the most interesting part of the book was in the first chapter when Saini interviews Dr. Where he tells her about how sports are just not part of Indian culture but science is. Being a Physics Olympiad qualified I could almost hear him speak the same words he said three years back at the nationals.follow site

But as she interviews him she finds out that most of the part of that book has really been written by his parents and moreover the lack of excitement or vision for science shown by Nitin, shrinks my desire to be him or say to be a geek! Instead of being the hothouses of intellectual curiosity and innovation…the IITs seem to have developed a culture of getting the grades and getting out.
The examples he cites to Saini thoroughly disappoint her.
