Bombay Rains, Bombay Girls.
Author : Anirban Bose
Finally someone had the gumption and chutzpah to write a coming-of-age novel based on student life in GMC. Some of Anirban's contemporaries in GMC may even  recognize those who inspired his characterizations! Easy to read and written in fluid prose the narrative is fast paced and pulls the reader along. The novel explores the lives and adventures of a group of students entering GMC and how their friendship is tested and forged. Dr Bose also delves into moral and ethical issues confronting his protagonist giving the book added depth and elevating this book above many others in it's genre. Highly recommended reading for all GMCites!
