Reminded me of the golden days of my life! The mass bunk, hostel life, vivas. Everything flashed before my eyes! He has worked in companies such as Polaris Software Labs Ltd.

It tells you about the engineering students 4 years at college and after college.
One star for making me think of my college life. We could dipne good stories in those real answer papers but not in this book.
I abmalia wonder why the hell he started the so called story in heaven and hell. Ok let me stop here. I accept it is fun reading the college facts but it is not a must read for engineering. View all 3 comments. Jul 17, Siddhartha rated it did not like it Shelves: Very amateurish and childish writing. Even today’s kids are much smarter than the absurd jokes mentioned in the book.
Stopped after reading 2 chapters. Apr 01, Ifsaar Ahmad rated it it was ok. Good Luck next time. Not worth a buy. May 28, Amit Shetty rated it really liked it.
For readers like us, who have completed the journey across the vast and deadly ocean of engineering, it serves as a beautiful reminder of the kids we once were.
How we innocently assumed, life would dupen set right after 4 years of torture and how our whole world was limited to completing assignments and getting updates on whose dating who. Ambali like in American Pie: The Book of Lovethe students were passing on the book to some unfortunate virgin. Do some charitable work like passing on this book to a first year when you see one in college or when a new one takes you place in the hostel after you finish your 4 or more year old prison sentence.
Thanks a lot Dipen, for reminding me of what I am and how I became one, ambaoia a hilarious satire. This book is available at Flipkart at a price of Rs.

Jun 16, Pallavi D rated it it was amazing. MUST read for all who want to be engineers,who are doing engineering and who have done engineering and recollect the college days! Totally hilarious from the first chapter! Surpanakha as the mother of enginering!. I loved the theory on submissions, vivas, etc.! I have read Scott adams books and could so well identify his style in Dipen’s work! Jun 16, Vijayankardharma rated it it was amazing.
Laughed my lungs out! Browsed through a few pages in crossword bhandup and then bought the book to go back to the college days! What a hilarious journey it was!
LOSER: Life Of a Software EngineeR by Dipen Ambalia
Expect more books from him! Must read for every engineer! Jun 16, Saptarishbeniprasadbanerjee rated it it was amazing. Right from the first page till the last page i was smilin and laughing. It kept me hooked till the last page Mar 12, Deep M. Not a good book,if you are a literature fan or you want to learn something. I am giving it a three star rating,just because it reminded me of my engineering days. The writing is poor and too mainstream. Slangs often used in the daily conversations of college life are used in the book.
But,the good part about this book is-writer has geniusly made some funny annecdotes like,the tale of “Shuparnakha-as a mother of engineering”,origin of vivas and assignments,etymology of word hostel etc. This will make Not a good book,if you are a literature fan or you want to learn something. Overall,it is a good reminder to one’s college life. If you are reading it,don’t regret after reading and if you aren’t,there is nothing to lose. Oct 22, Suyash Karangutkar rated it really liked it.
E’ and this time he has Engineering students on his hit-list. Trust me, the book has a very interesting start. As you open the book and begin reading you’ll laugh your heart out as each and every sentence in it unwraps lots and lots of entertainment. In my opinion, ‘To B. E’ is much better than Chetan Bhagat’s satire’s and is written in such a manner that you trully won’t feel like doing anything else other than reading the book. It is a hilarious one. Every page of it has shots of laughter; thus making it a page-turner.
I am sure the author must have idealized the adage ‘Laughter is the best medicine’ while authoring the book. For those have completed four years of their Engineering – the book takes you back to your collage days and for those who wish to pursue engineering this book can prove to be your best guide.
Jun 15, Suyash Karangutkar rated it really liked it. Jul 18, Meghant Parmar rated it liked it. It’s a decent story with lots of humor and best suited for engineers to read. Casual readers won’t find it as interesting as the other books. The readers who don’t belong to this profession will not enjoy it thoroughly. It’s a good attempt to portray the lives of the engineers and many parts in this book will hold true. Some parts are lengthy and over stretched at times.
It’s an engineer’s delight. Jun 16, Madhupavishwaschaterjee rated it it was amazing.
To B.E. or Not to B.E.?
Comedy at its best i would say! I am missing those days again! Dipdn main focus is on recollection of the college days. Surely recommend to one and all! Read this book and you will surely call up your college friends and relive the old days!
Dec 11, Karthik D. R rated it it was amazing Shelves: The author literally has poured out will he mind if I say ‘Puked out’?
If someone fits exactly to the essence of this book, I’ll be him! Thanks for making me to travel around those awesome years again in my lifetime. I owe you a party your amba,ia canteen: Jun 21, Santosh Baraiya rated it really liked it.
