Chetan Bhagat Biography

Some interesting facts about an author and columnist, Chetan Bhagat.


.“Life is not to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up? It’s ok, bunk a few classes, goof up a few interviews, fall in love. We are people, not programmed devices.”
― Chetan Bhagat
