Open Letter to all Ketan Bhagat Haters or People who are judging him UNESSCARILY
By Udita Pal
Somewhere inside my head I knew this was going to happen. Ketan Bhagat Who recently debuted with his book Compete / Convenient (Shristi Publications) is facing lot of troubles because people think that he is using his brother’s name to gain publicity. We have this problem you know? We can’t bear someone’s success so we start making useless and unnecessary proclamations to ruin someone’s image. Some people think both Ketan and his brother are black spot to writing industry. Just a FYI Notice Chetan Bhagat is reason Indian Literature Industry can think of selling million copies , Because of him so many people tried their hands in writing, became efficacious and if you find him black spot or whatever Why are you reading his book ? Don’t read. No one cares actually.
Fatherhood and more..
“My stories begin where Chetan’s stories end,” says Ketan Bhagat, MNC executive, author and the brother of India’s most prolific author, Chetan Bhagat.
His second novel, Child-God is a tale of a 35 year old man learning the meaning of life from his new born son. He says, “Many stories exist about how motherhood changes a woman. I wanted to explore this from a man’s perspective and that provided the material for this book. I think that this is a book any father would be able to identify with at some level.”
‘I’m not a writer
“I’m not Ranbir Kapoor. You don’t have to stand up for me!” he says, as his audience at Just Books, Kochi, rose to welcome him.
“I’m not a writer,” he says, though fresh copies of his debut novel Complete/Convenient sit in stacks beside him.
“I’m not Chetan Bhagat, though I am his brother.” he laughs. He rattles off a familiar litany in proof of the last statement.

A Love For All Seasons
Last week I attended a literary event at my local library and the chief guest was the debutant author Ketan Bhagat. For the audience he was the brother of India’s most influential writer Chetan Bhagat – but only till the interaction began. Two minutes after he began speaking, it was obvious that Ketan Bhagat was completely his own man and author. He was smart and funny and practically reeking of quiet self-assurance.
