My favorite Quotes -- Revolution 2020

Morning Everyone,
Revolution 2020, Revolution 2020 quotes, Revolution 2020 book cover
Revolution 2020
How is it all going on? Grabbed a good read these days? Well, Yeah, I have. Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagath. The official introduction to the books says:

Once upon a time, in small-town India, there lived two intelligent boys.
One wanted to use his intelligence to make money.
One wanted to use his intelligence to create a revolution.
The problem was, they both loved the same girl.

I loved the book a lot. Here is a review for the book and below you can find my favorite lines in the book:
'Looks like we will have to break the door', the maid said
I wondered how I, who had come as a chief guest for a college orientation program, became involved with forcing open random toilets in Varanasi.
'Sounds good,' Raghav said. 'I am sure you will crack something. At least AIEE.'
When people clear JEE, they start using phrases like 'at least AIEEE.'
When girls use vague terms like 'generally', it is cause for specific concern. Or maybe not.
Raghav's advising her? Who is he? A career counselor? Or does he have the license to preach now because he has a fucking JEE rank?
'Love is what your parents give you if you clear the IIT exam', he said
Pouting, she went back to her seat. 'Mr. Editor, don't edit me out of your life, okay?' she said.
Old friends are old friends, Goapl. Boyfriends and all are fine, but they never understand you like old friends can'
'Different? Formal? Is that all you say?' she mocked.
'No .. you look great. But I didn't expect to see you in a sari,' I said.
'Didn't expect what? that your stupid classmate from school could get a real job?' she wiggled her eyebrows, hands on hips.
'Yeah. You are quite stupid."
Every Friday I made rounds of the classes. I kept a three-day stubble to look old enough to be a director.
She picked up a french fry from her plate and threw it at me. She missed. It fell on the sofa.
'Oops, pick it up, please. I can't dirty my own hotel.' she said
I went back to undoing her jeans. Girls wear the most unremovable, tight jeans in the world. I found it impossible to take them off without her help
'All you boys are the same. First you chase, but when you get the girl, you want to be kinds,' she said
'You are my queen, my dear,' I said.
'Cheesy. Conry. Horrible,' she said
How do you come up with a suitable sentence to convey something you have meant to say for years? .... 'I am better than you, asshole'

Well Well, have you read this book? Or any other book by Chetan Bhagath? How do you feel about it? Your opinion on his style?

with warm regards
