Complete/Convenient explores expatriate life for India’s diaspora The latest official Indian figures estimate the Indian diaspora at 22 million people. Nonresident Indians (NRIs) comprise about 10 million, and, of those, about 213,000 live in Australia. Britain has its Bronte sisters; now, India has its Bhagat brothers. With his debut novel, Complete/Convenient, Ketan Bhagat proves that great writing is not the exclusive provenance of big brother Chetan, but is now the family business.

Review of Complete/ Convenient by Ketan Bhagat by Rohit Arya Finally we get a book about the NRI experience that is not rarefied in literary unapproachability or debased to the aunty fantasies that constitute the oeuvre of Karan Johar. The debut novel by Ketan Bhagat, may not be considered great, but it is definitely a pioneering effort and more importantly he employs prose in a sturdy, workmanlike manner. That is more difficult than most people realize and is always praiseworthy. Urban India is finally reaching towards adult psychological maturity and this book is a milestone in that long overdue process.

Book Review: Complete/Convenient by MANJULIKAPRAMOD My Say: This potboiler, strewn with spices from India and abroad, turned out to be a treat for me as a reader. I enjoyed every nook and cranny of the Indian (Punjabi) boy, Kabir’s story. The turn of events were gripping and amusing giving me good laughs at the mention of many instances and anecdotes. Basically Ketan Bhagat has touched upon the Indian sentiments eloquently. I must say don’t miss it this season.

Review: Complete/Convenient by ANUJ SHARMA People blessed (ha!) with siblings would agree that there are positives and negatives when it comes to following what your sibling has already mastered. You share the same parents, and, therefore, the same genes, and that means anything one sibling accomplishes, you should theoretically be able to accomplish a bit of that as well. You like it or not, when you enter the same domain, comparison is bound to happen. Michael and Ralf Schumacher? Mukesh and Anil Ambani? Michael and Fredo Corleone? Adolf and Rudolf Dassler?

Complete/Convenient | Ketan Bhagat | Book Review by Sankalpita Chetan Bhagat taught India to read. Now his younger sibling Ketan Bhagat has joined the coveted “author” bandwagon by penning his debut “Complete/Convenient”. I know it’s really not fair of me to introduce the debut author by relating to his brother, but then we all know our heads may not turn by the mention of a debut author, but that they are bound to, at the mention of the Chetan tag. Well, Ketan is here to live up of his brother’s reputation and he has surely done a good job at
