Ketan Bhagat is a zealous storyteller and a writer. A typical thirty-fiveyear-old middle-class Indian living in Mumbai, storytelling is in his genes. He is bestselling writer Chetan Bhagat’s younger brother. His debut novel Complete/Convenient is proof of that with its success and the many hearts it has won.
I am not a well read man: Ketan Bhagat
Better known as bestselling author Chetan Bhagat’s brother, Ketan Bhagat says sailing in the publishing world was not smooth for him even though he was armed with a famous surname.
After getting rejected by some 25 publishers, he was signed by Crossword and his book “Complete/Convenient” has sold over 10,000 copies since its release about two months ago

He is quite at ease in admitting that he was never into reading or writing. But somewhere along the line, Ketan Bhagat felt the desire to take a chance at writing — telling a story that has not been told before — and thus exploring new boundaries. His book, Complete/Convenient: There Is More To Men Then Bromance that released recently, explores the life of NRIs.
The Other Bhagat
Ketan Bhagat, author Chetan Bhagat’s younger brother, is ready with his debut book Complete/Convenient: There Is More To Men And Bromance. “Being creative is an ongoing process of thinking outside the box,” said Ketan Bhagat, who was in Chandigarh recently and had been invited by the Punjab and Haryana Chapter of The Indus Entrepreneur (TiE) and Chandigarh Literary Society (CLS). Addressing entrepreneurs in the city, Ketan talked about how the “initial idea is a part of the logical thinking, but implementing the idea and ability to monetise it requires creativity.”
