  3. 3. Chetan Bhagat– Timeline An Indian author, columnist, and speaker
  4. 4. Apr 22, 1974: Chetan Bhagat Chetan Bhagat was born in New Delhi to a middle- class family. His father was an officer in the army (Lt Col) and his mother was a government employee in the agricultural department. Education Bhagat's education was mostly in Delhi. He attended an Army Public School, Dhaula kuan, New Delhi (1978–1991).
  5. 5. Engineering He studied Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D) (1991–1995). He graduated from the Indian Institute of Management Ahmadabad (1995–1997). After graduation he worked as an investment banker in Hong Kong. He had been working in Hong Kong for 11 years before shifting to Mumbai to pursue his passion for writing.
  6. 6. 2004: FIVE POINT SOMEONE The book starts with a disclaimer, “This is not a book to teach you how to get into IIT or even how to live in college. In fact, it describes how screwed up things can get if you don‟t think straight.” Three hostel mates – Alok, Hari and Ryan get off to a bad start in IIT – they screw up the first class quiz. And while they try to make amends, things only get worse. It takes them a while to realize: If you try and screw with the IIT system, it comes back to double screw you. They have a five-point- something GPA out of ten, ranking near the end of their class. This GPA is a tattoo that will remain with them, and come in the way of anything else that matters – their friendship, their future, their love life. While the world expects IITians to conquer the world, these guys are struggling to survive.Rent it from JustBooks

During the journey, the narrating author meets a beautiful girl. The story was about six people working in a call center. One night they got a phone-call from god within the story, which comprises the bulk of the book, relates the events that happen one night at a call center. Told through the eyes of the protagonist, Shyam, it is a story of almost lost love, thwarted ambitions, absence of family affection, pressures of a patriarchal set up, and the work environment of a globalized office. Esha wants to be a model, Radhika is in an unhappy marriage with a demanding mother-in-law, and military uncle wants to talk to his grandson; they all hate Bakshi, their cruel boss. Claimed to be based on a true story, the author chooses Shyam Mehra (alias Sam Marcy) as the narrator and protagonist, who is one among the six call center employees featured.

Omi knows his limited capabilities and just wants to be with his friends. However, nothing comes easy in a turbulent city. To realize their goals, they will have to face it all – religious politics, earthquakes, riots, unacceptable love and above all, their own mistakes. Will they make it? Can an individual‟s dreams overcome the nightmares offered by real life? Can we succeed despite a few mistakes?
  9. 9. 2009: 2 STATES Rent it from JustBooks Welcome to 2 States, a story about Krish and Ananya. They are from two different states of India, deeply in love and want to get married. Of course, their parents don‟t agree. To convert their love story into a love marriage, the couple have a tough battle in front of them. For it is easy to fight and rebel, but it is much harder to convince. This story focuses on the love story of a Tamil girl, Ananya, and a Punjabi boy, Krish and their mission to get married. It follows the story line of any typical Bollywood movie, I wish I could say there were dramatic deviations from this fact but there was not but the book was still a great read regardless.
