Chetan Bhagat

Author | Speaker

The man who revolutionised the world of books, Chetan is a true inspiration for the youth of today. As someone who quit a comfortable corporate life to follow his passion for writing, Chetan talks about mental strength, understanding oneself and how to deal with dilemmas in life.

Chetan’s journey on the road to success began with his very first book, Five Point Someone, which found a place in the bookshelves of almost every home in India. The books that followed – One Night @ the Call Center, The 3 Mistakes of My Life, 2 States, Revolution 2020, What India Wants and Half Girlfriend – made Chetan the most sought-after author, especially among young Indians. Not only has he won accolades for his work, but many of his books have found their way to scripts of Bollywood blockbusters.

A graduate from IIT and a post graduate from IIM, Chetan quit his investment banking career not only to follow his passion for writing, but to write with the thought of bringing a change in the country. And in the genre of fiction, he did bring about a difference in the thought process of the youth. Chetan’s talks and his columns in leading English and Hindi newspapers also focus on issues of national development through the youth.
