The Point, Everyone Appropriately, Chetan Bhagat grins on a fashion show, along with actress Vaishali Desai. Preposterously, it's called Fevicol Caring with Style. The designer was BJP's own Shaina NC.

One Mistake Chetan Bhagat, cult aut­hor for the neo-literate, spins around Gujarat for a NatGeo series, sponsored by a carmaker. “I want to see the real India," says he, though a Siddi village (see Books) finds him probably con­­t­acting an exotic call-centre.

N.R. Narayana Murthy vs Chetan Bhagat The Infoczar and the LitPopstar. When two lamp-posts on the same side of the street lit into each other, sound travelled faster than light. Infosys mentor Narayana Murthy (who apparently has presidential ambitions) kicked it off by lamenting the falling quality among IIT graduates. This got writer and ex-IITian Chetan Bhagat’s goat. And so Murthy, who is used to much deference being shown to him, got plainspoken words from a punctured ego. High-handed! Unfair! Those who spend their life running a bodyshop shouldn’t comment on IITs! Alumni pitched in, for both sides of the argument. Call it the Engineers’ Litfest.

2states “Most publishers here are very fake. The only writers they admire are those who are popular in the UK. It’s like saying only Hindi films that succeed in UK are good. But books that work in UK are tailor-made for them, not for us.”
