Chetan Bhagat

Bhagat is the author of five bestselling novels, Five Point Someone (2004), One Night @ the Call Center (2005), The 3 Mistakes of My Life (2008) , 2 States (2009) & Revolution 2020: Love, Corruption, Ambition (2011). All five books have remained bestsellers since their release and two have inspired Bollywood films (including the hit film 3 Idiots). In 2008, The New York Timescalled Bhagat "the biggest selling English language novelist in India's history".[1] [2] Bhagat, a graduate of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and IIM Ahmedabad, is seen more as a youth icon than as an author.[3] Time magazine named him as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.[4] Bhagat also favoured the forming of a system similar to the Lokpal as early as January 2011 through his articles

There is a number in his every book, and now, you see, he has completed digit 1 to 5 -
1: ONE night @ call center
2: 2 states
3: 3 mistakes of my life
4- digit-sum of 2020 adds up to 4.. thats y, r2020
5: FIVE point someone

may be he will include SIX in his next book, if he continues the trend

another trivia about CBs books is-
in his every book, central character holds Lord SriKrishna’s name, as
HARI, SHYAM, GOVIND, KRISH and now GOPAL.. [resp.]

CB must be looking out for more names of Lord SriKrishna for his next book!


Its really good to see him on Library Junction.
