“Complete/Convenient, story told from a man’s point of view” says Ketan Bhagat
By Khushwant Singh

Tell us something about yourself especially about your school and college life.
I was born and brought up in Delhi. My father was in army and so mostly out of station. My mother was an agricultural scientist and would only be home by five. That gave us brothers plenty of time and opportunities to play pranks, fight, break things, call up friends etc. All this and myself being the youngest in the family meant I was really spoilt and pampered. Even today I smile at memories of Nirulas ice creams, our green ambassador car which gave more jerks than kilometers in its lifetime, my dog, flying kites on terraces, school holidays due to mandal commission, chola bhaturas at mangal bazaar etc. From bullying conductors in redline buses to sneaking out my dad’s maruti 800 after he slept to visit my girlfriend, I have done everything that characterizes Delhi.

Kaleidoscopic Ketan
By Soumya R

I have fixed an appointment with Ketan Bhagat. He arrives on time and just as promised. A man who crafts stories through his words. The man keeps up his words. Intriguing in our Zaamana! Now, I figured I have found one of those rare cookies. Unlike other interviews where I know the person inside out, given the amount of tight schedule, I go totally unprepared. I am luckily blessed. In the media world, sometimes when you go unprepared, you prepare yourself for a surprise. Good bad ugly come in later.

Open Letter to all Ketan Bhagat Haters or People who are judging him UNESSCARILY
By Udita Pal

Somewhere inside my head I knew this was going to happen. Ketan Bhagat Who recently debuted with his book Compete / Convenient (Shristi Publications) is facing lot of troubles because people think that he is using his brother’s name to gain publicity. We have this problem you know? We can’t bear someone’s success so we start making useless and unnecessary proclamations to ruin someone’s image. Some people think both Ketan and his brother are black spot to writing industry. Just a FYI Notice Chetan Bhagat is reason Indian Literature Industry can think of selling million copies , Because of him so many people tried their hands in writing, became efficacious and if you find him black spot or whatever Why are you reading his book ? Don’t read. No one cares actually.

His second novel, Child-God is a tale of a 35 year old man learning the meaning of life from his new born son. He says, “Many stories exist about how motherhood changes a woman.
