The Chetan Bhagat workshop at the Emirates Festival of Literature started just 5 minutes past 11 am. Tardiness is a trait, no sorry, leech that refuses to leave my conscious and sub-conscious self, so I got lucky this time. I rushed past the people seated in the auditorium – their eagerness for the discussions to begin was hard to overlook – claimed my place and started recording. I got there just in time to start the camera and capture Pranay Gupte, veteran international journalist and author, introducing Mr. Chetan Bhagat to the audience.
For those that are familiar with popular Indian literature, Chetan Bhagat needs no introduction. For those that aren’t, Chetan Bhagat is one of India’s all-time bestselling author, he’s a well-known novelist and most recently turned motivational speaker.
There are three videos that have been posted in this v-feature. I had to break it down into three as Bhagat spoke on many topics that I wanted to bring to you. In the first video, he talks about corruption in India. In the second video, he is quizzed about when he discovered his love for language by Gupte. The third video shows Chetan Bhagat talking about Social networks and India Growing.
