Guess who is not reading Chetan Bhagat? His brother Ketan Bhagat

Meet Ketan Bhagat. Bestselling author Chetan Bhagat’s kid brother who is not part of the big, fat “CB Family” that drools over every word Chetan writes, who told his brother 10 years ago that the smashing hit One Night @ the Call Centre would not work, who was bullied by his big brother when he was growing up, and who now describes his relationship with his brother as “cordial”.

Two books down, Ketan is a bestselling author himself – whatever the word bestselling translates into. At 39, he has seen a lot of life. From cleaning bathrooms in a 5-star hotel, to a stint in Singapore’s IT sector, to his current trips to the family court to seek permission to meet his six-year old.

But there’s something about this Bhagat – he is down-to-earth and affable, and when he flip-flops, you know he is doing it for the sake of Big Brother.

“My first book was criticized for being thick” – Ketan Bhagat

Ketan Bhagat – An exclusive blend of self discovery and reality

The surname is familiar and the name as well is quite rhyming. Being the author of Complete/Convenient and Child/God, he is also a motivational speaker. He talks like a common man. His words describe the struggles of an individual trying to keep up the pace with people’s expectation. Now when both the sexes are considered equal and are in the same boat, stories on woman get more focus than man and so he tends to write on ‘man’ and from a man’s point of view.

In this chat, we get to know a bit more about Ketan Bhagat, who apart from being an author holds a Managerial position in an MNC here in India and that he is currently loving the process of discovery of his own self.

Author’s Interview- Questionnaire with Ketan Bhagat author of ‘Child/God’

How did you first get involved in with writing, are you an imaginative person?

People sometimes compliment me for my creativity. I, however, think that I am a philosopher hidden inside a stand up comedian. I first got involved in writing during my MBA days in Mumbai. A friend of mine was involved with a music channel and they needed scripts for a show. I cracked a few jokes at the audition and was selected. Helped me make good pocket money. After college, I left Mumbai and also this hobby.

What is your opinion about the initiative undertaken by Global Asian Times to recognize writers and provide them worldwide exposure through this international contest?

As a writer who has knocked on doors of various publishers, waited endlessly for literary agents to respond to emails with sample chapters, burnt hard-earned money at bookstores just to get better placement on bookshevles, stalked PR companies and journalists for media coverage and literally begged literary festival organizers for participation… I can’t express the priceless contribution this initiative can make to the lives of writers.

Ketan Bhagat dissects a man’s life when romance ends and reality strikes: Global Asian Times

Vinita Kinra: Welcome to Global Asian Times, Ketan. You seem to be ready and prepared to rule the slash title books — first with Complete/Convenient and now Child/God. What explains your affinity towards “Versus” titles?

Ketan Bhagat: It started as an accident but has now become my style. I wanted to title my first book ‘Complete or Convenient’ but my publisher believed in numerology and somehow that title wasn’t fitting well in his charts. I wanted to retain the title as it represented the philosophy of the story. Somehow the slash fitted into the numerology chart without taking away my preferred title. READ FULL STORY Read More
