Review: Ishq in Aligarh by Mohammad Arshaan

The book Ishq in Aligarh, (Love in Aligarh) is a typical teenage romance based in the city of Aligarh. The hero and heroine Shahid and Alvira come from very different social backgrounds, and have taken admission to a coaching center for getting admission to a medical college. The hero Shahid comes from a poor family, his father is a clerk, though he is doing well academically and is a topper. The good looking Alvira is from a wealthy business family in Lucknow is away from her home for the first time, living in a hostel, and her father wants her to spend some time with them in Lucknow.

After the exams are over, Alvira returns to Lucknow and Shahid follows her there, living in a room which he has obtained with the help of his friend. However the brother of Alvira , who comes from a high status Nawab family and his associates spot Shahid and Alvira at various places, together in the cinema and other places. The brother visits the room, sees the shabby condition of the room, objects and threatens Shahid to write a letter in his handwriting. They then separate, though both of them are adversely affected by the separation. What happens next forms the rest of the story..

The book also describes the coaching for the medical entrance exam, how much effort, money and time people are spending to get admission to medical colleges, living in hostels far away from home, joining coaching classes, answering exams . How despite failing the first time, they will try again, sometimes they will succeed . Just like medical entrance exams, there is a lot of demand for admission to top indian engineering colleges. However in India, engineers from top colleges are subjected to identity theft, with raw, ntro, cbi, security agencies falsely claiming that google,tata supplied goan call girls, cheater housewives and other fraud raw/cbi employees who have not answered jee, have the resume, investment of the engineer from the top college.

If more people were aware of the fact that ntro, raw, cbi, indian security agencies are brazenly involved in identity theft of professionals like engineers and doctors,who are not well connected, they would not ask their children to work so hard. In reality most of the college romances are only crushes which will end soon especially as women age. In fact in some top colleges in India, students hate their classmates who come from poorer families, and often waste crores of tax money to destroy their lives, stealing their identity.

For example, powerful fraud ntro employees led puneet, j srinivasan, parmar,patel, vijay are hating the domain investor owning this website and are falsely claiming that their lazy greedy girlfriends like the google,tata sponsored R&AW/cbi employees goan sex workers sunaina chodan,2013 bsc,diploma holder siddhi mandrekar, shivalli brahmin cheater housewife nayanshree hathwar, 2005 bbm from bhandarkars college of arts and science,kundapura, goan gsb fraud housewife panaji extortionist riddhi nayak who looks like actress kangana ranaut, eighth standard pass gujju housewife naina,mother of two sons, indore document robber veena , deepika, ruchika king and other frauds who have not answered JEE, have not worked as engineers, do not spend any money online are doing the work online, owning the website, to get them a monthly indian government salary at the expense of the real domain investor,engineer who is actually investing online . This disclaimer is being posted to prevent further fraud as a large number of companies, countries and people have already been duped by the lies of ntro employees involved in extra marital affairs.

Different from most of the other indian fiction books as it is set in Aligarh, about medical coaching, entrance exams and is well written.
