The story revolves around Alok who is preparing for the UPSC exam. He moved to old Rajindra Nagar for his preparation, where he met new people who were also grappling with these exams and had different background stories. The story revolves around the journey of Alok and his friends which involves hard work, despair, love, guilt, heartbreak, death, inspiration, and realization. All the characters- Ankit, Sakshi, Sara, Rashmi, Mustafa, Gaurav, Hajal, Indu, Balram, Manish, Abhijeet, Rohini, Mr. Das, Bulbul, all did justice to the story and it never felt like there were so many characters in the book.
Since the author Piyush Rohankar himself is a civil servant, he has beautifully narrated the lives of civil services aspirants. As if he had written every word from his own experience. I really liked the character of Alok, Ankit, and Sakshi. All three were portrayed very well.

The plot is well written and we get to see how tough the civil service really is. There are many candidates who really want to dream of becoming an IAS officer and invest a lot of their time and effort.

The story is interesting and some parts even made me emotional. The author subtly addressed the various social problems of India, explained and handled them in a delicate manner which was honestly a plus point. Be it remorse, faith, love, friendship, politics, prostitution, police, everything happens. The book is written like a mystery or thriller book. The book has elements of love, friendship, regret, life, achievement, dreams, and more. The book also has some beautiful and meaningful poems. There is a mystery that is revealed at the end which is not easily believable yet interesting. Sometimes there are no answers to some questions and that makes the journey more exciting.

  The language of the story is simple and understandable. The writing style is very attractive. A fast-paced story with well-illustrated characters. I would recommend this book to every reader as it has a different plot.
