India Positive: New Essays and Selected Columns by Chetan Bhagat

India Positive: New Essays and Selected Columns by Chetan Bhagat. In India Positive, bestselling author and columnist Chetan Bhagat brings together essays that work as a manifesto for change.

Does it make any difference to the ordinary citizen which party is in power? Whether it’s a majority or a coalition?

What can we do to better job prospects for India’s youth?

How can we create a more equal society?

How do we create more world-class educational institutes?

What can we do about social media warriors and trolls?

Examining a gamut of subjects—from education to employment, from GST to infrastructure, from corruption to casteism

—Bhagat reflects on what we can do right in order to move forward and become a truly modern, progressive country. He expresses in these pages his belief that, if we want to see reform, we—as citizens—need to be the solution. If our country is to shine, Bhagat says, we need to stand up and be ‘India Positive Citizens’.

In a world ridden with negativity, these simply written, perceptive and solution-driven essays are a must-read for anyone invested in the present and future of India.

About the Author

Chetan Bhagat
a few words

Chetan Bhagat

Chetan Bhagat writes op-ed columns for English and Hindi newspapers, including Times of India and Dainik Bhaskar, focusing on youth and issues based on national development. Bhagat is also a motivational speaker and has given talks in leading MNCs and other institutions. He quit his international investment banking career in 2009, to devote his entire time to writing.

In 2008, The New York Times called Bhagat "the biggest selling English language novelist in India’s history". Bhagat, a graduate of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and IIM Ahmedabad, is seen more as a youth icon than as an author.

Bhagat holds degrees in Mechanical engineering and MBA from prestigious Indian institutions like IIT & IIM respectively. He started his career as an investment banker, but left it after a few years to pursue his passion in writing. He has written eight novels and three non-fiction books. Right from the time his first best-selling novel Five Point Someone was published in 2004, his subsequent novels have found a place on bestsellers lists. His novels will not be there on lists like 'Top 10 bestselling Indian novels of all time' or '12 best Indian novels that everyone needs to read,’ but one of his novels 'Five Point Someone' does find a place in a list like '20 best selling novels you must read.’ Bhagat has been described as "the biggest selling English language novelist in India's history.” However, Bhagat has also been criticised for his writing skills as not being literary, but "formulaic and targeting a specific audience" and that he is "literally, the Maharaja Mac of literature," as his books are like "processed material that people consume in a hurry.” Bhagat has even been accused of plagiarism for his novel 'One Indian Girl', a charge he has denied and rubbished the allegations as unfounded and "deeply unfortunate"
