This guy has found the trick to turn glittery, loud and low budget Indian movie scripts into books. Don’t get me wrong before I put my point. I will break my point down in 3 steps. Feel free to add your points or correct me.
Look at the picture and then read how many times he has been quoted criticizing people!
Point 1: Cheap Publicity
I will take Chetan Bhagat’s help me in quoting his own statements as an evidence of this allegation.
On Father’s day : “Mother’s give birth, but ultimately the coke belongs to the guy who puts coin in the wending machine. Happy Father’s day”
On Gaza attacks: “What is happening to Gaza isn’t fair, but sadly that is the only way sometimes terrorist organizations and their supporters learn to behave”
On Indian economy crashing: “The rupee is asking, is there no punishment for my rapists.”
In an IIT Fest: “Educated girls don’t want to date a guy who doesn’t speak English and this is what I have tried to bring out in my novel”.
Every time some idiot writes I am no Tolstoy or Tagore (never said I was) he or she acknowledges that I might deserve that comparison.
One of his articles: Another thing we are good at is not discussing any problems that have a sexual angle. [isn’t that what you do yourself?]
On modi: In Slumdog Millionaire, a chaiwallah won the top prize.The world loved that story. Remember that.
To rushdie – “I’ll not make somebody who attacks my god a hero. This is India, you cannot hurt feelings here,”
On Infosys – It is ironic when someone who runs a body-shopping company and calls it hi-tech, makes sweeping comments on the quality of IIT students, Chetan Bhagat wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
On Manmohan Singh: I know a PhD who remained silent when the country was robbed when he could have done so much. Education and capability are different things.
On AAP: AAP is an item girl of politics.
I rest my case here.
In the next point of allegation on him, we shall talk about hypocrisy, pompousness and double standards!
Disclaimer: To Chetan Bhagat and all his fans – if you do end up reading this article then please don’t be offended. If you do get offended, I apologize. In the end, I’d just like to quote one of your tweets:
Final word on my writing: padhni hai to padho, varna kat lo.
