ABOUT THIS BOOK

Assam. 1990s.
Two average sixteen-year-old boys are preparing for their Board exams. Neither of them is the brightest in class; in fact, they’ve both flunked their pre-Boards. But even as they feverishly revise, the world outside is on the verge of collapse—with an ongoing insurgency, illegal migration and the constant declaration of bandhs that threaten to disrupt their exams.
And as if these distractions aren’t bad enough, there’s also the nagging thought of what their future might hold. Not that the question matters when one of them finds himself kidnapped! Will they manage to save themselves and still make it past the Boards?
S#!t Called Board Exams and Terrorism tackles serious issues like education and insurrection, but is, at its heart, a delightful coming-of-age story. A must-read for every person who has ever been afraid to appear for an examination!
