Performing Arts Festival (PAF) is an inter hostel competition at IIT Bombay, where a pair of hostels present an hour-long skit. The paired hostels completely own the performance right from script writing to dramatization, sets, sound, lights, music, and publicity to attract people to come and watch the show. In 1991, Hostel 6 and Hostel 9 presented a skit titled Moonstone. It had an amazing story line, some never before seen incredible special effects, amazing light and sound effects, great actors, musicians, and dancers. In short, with an abundance of talent, Moonstone was headed for a definite victory. But when the performance started, everything went wrong, from the first scene all the way to the last scene. In the process, history was created and Moonstone ho gaya to mean everything got messed up or turned into a fiasco  got added to IITB?s lingo. Read Moonstone: The Incredible One Hour to find out what went wrong, how, and why. This book is a laughter riot, that will have you rolling you on the floor laughing, or ROTFL as it is popularly called.

    Saw the FB ad of this book and decided to buy it. It turned out to be one of the best buying decisions of mine because this is an awesome book! The first part was good, but the second part was just too good! Couldn’t stop laughing while reading some parts of the play. Absolutely Hilarious! Highly recommend it to all.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    Ever wondered if those crazy IITians do anything other than keeping their noses buried in books? Look no further than this brief memoir by Atul Gupta. Having personally experienced or witnessed most of the events described in this wonderful work, I can vouch for the veracity of all of them (OK, most of them…). Enjoy!

    An excellently written and hilarious read for everyone. You will not drop the book till you finish.

    Writing a hilarious book is no easy task. It is not easy because one has to convey the hilarity without being prosaic so as not to lose the reader. Atul has managed this difficult task extremely well. Full marks to him for it.

    The first part of the book is redundant for someone who knows IIT Bombay and its campus. But I can understand that Atul has taken care to ensure that a reader without any connection to IIT Bombay can understand the context of the scenes and some of the typical character profiles.

    I recommend it highly.
