As if we are chatting about the world in a cocktail party. Aug 07, Subodh rated it liked it. It is just a okay book. Its not for the people who understand ill effect of corruption very well. I won't say that you can give this book a miss. I would not say its a revolutionary book either. Some chapters are really good. Some are okay. Few are really bullshit. Having said that, this book and books like this must be introduced to teenagers as a snapshot of current India.
They need not only to be aware of issues, but understand them as well. This book fairs well in that department. I do no It is just a okay book. I do not know why CB sucked up with Sonia Gandhi. He seems praising Rahul Gandhi at one place. I could not digest it.
I hope CB has not lost his senses. I suggest other two books to read if Indian shit appeals you. Jul 25, Indira Mukhopadhyay rated it really liked it Recommends it for: All young Indians. Having gone through all the reviews of this book, I think there is not much left to say. There is one thing about Chetan Bhagat's writing, you love it or hate it but can't ignore it. It starts a thought process in you. If you think he is not correct then you star thinking that it should be like this.
That's what he wants from our youths. Awake and start thinking. He is successful at that be it his fiction stories or this particular book. His writing style is simple, sensible and effective.
He Having gone through all the reviews of this book, I think there is not much left to say. He admits he doesn't know everything. Join him in his dreams, write to him where you think he is wrong.
Or wake write yourself what is good for India. Aug 22, Swetha rated it it was ok Shelves: For once, I don't have any accusations on Chetan Bhagat. Having given India books about narcotics, outcasts, geeks and newspaper articles, he did end up becoming influential. I didn't prefer him being on that list once but now that he has raised his voice on issues that have to be dealt with in India, I do have this tiny bit of respect for him.
While this book might not educate you deeply on how to change India yeah like any book can? Dec 14, Abhinav rated it it was amazing.
His readers must have expected him to write something fun, romantic and dramatic writings as he always does in his alternative style.
Bhagat mentions that: Corruption is a way of life in India which is a by-product of a system that is power driven. He refers the system to the constitution and power to the wealthy political leaders. But corruption is not just confined to the system but also the society. A remarkable statement: If it had been any other author it might be a bit boring but this one is a beauty.
The book is primarily based on the youth of India as most of the country is young. The book gives detailed information of the politics in India and how we are bound to it. But there are some highlights in the book which I want to mention: This section is confined to students which I liked the most because I am one of those. Spark is the excitement which makes us feel truly alive.
When we are kids we used to have a million sparks. A spider-man toy was enough to excite us to jump on the beds. A gift presented on our birthday made us to somersault all over the house. A movie show or a dine at the restaurant or a country side trip used to fill up us with interest, curiosity and anxiety. This excitement is called as spark.
When we reach the graduation age we still have these sparks with us but comparatively less. As you move on to the older age, it is difficult to find these sparks in us.
Chetan takes an example of Kareena in the movie Jab we met. When we compare her to the first half versus the second half, we find that she loses her spark in the second half. This is what that happens to us if we lose the spark. Chetan says that these sparks can be invoked by three factors and should be protected from four storms. They are: Reasonable goals Balance of health and relationships Not taking things too seriously And the four storms are: Disappointment Frustration Unfairness Loneliness of purpose The author says that to keep these sparks alive we must always have goals as by human nature we always strive, improve and achieve our full potential.
He tells us not to do things for money, he tells us to do those things which our heart tells us to do, the things which make us happy and the things which make us feel alive. Secondly, these goals should be balanced.
What is the use of coming first in a race without lemon in the spoon? Our striving is only worth if there is harmony in life otherwise the spark begins to die. The author says that Life is a prepaid card with limited validity. If you live for 60 years you will just have weekends. We are people, not programmed devices. I am not kidding, seriously!!! Chetan also adds that we have 4 obstacles which try to kill our spark.
The first being disappointment which comes to us when we do not get the expected results for our efforts. If we can overcome every challenge, then the word challenge will never exist. If we are failing at something, it implies that we have a different stage. Thirdly, never think that life is unfair comparing to others connections, rich dads and beautiful faces.
Finally, the most beautiful thing described by the author is isolation. As we grow older we realise that we are unique and what we believe in and what we feel is different from others.
It happens because we compromise many things for our families and loved ones which mean so much to us. Chetan says Love yourself first and then others. I just felt as if I founded the path of my life. The next highlight is how Bhagat boldly aims at the leaders of our country. As I mentioned earlier, the critic is not just confined to the system but also the society. Yes, because many of us vote a party by seeing its religion or caste of the leaders but not by their efficiency.
We choose leaders from the craze which their dads own. The author precisely describes what Indians do to themselves. It may be the madam of BJP indirectly aiming at Sushma Swaraj who tells us to burn down the Walmart stores or the woman who puts a money garland around her neck indirectly Mayawati or the person who thinks that silence is a golden tool or a form of Gandhigiri indirectly Manmohan Singh or the woman who keeps quiet even after seeing the corruption in her party indirectly Sonia Gandhi.
Whoever it may be, Chetan has a point in detail why these political leaders have to change their so called attitude. Chetan has written two letters in this book, one to Gandhi and the other to Sonia. To the letter for Gandhi, he describes that India is free from the white people but not from the problems.
Many people do not even get the basic amenities while the people who get them do not get a platform to do really something innovative. Also, in the letter to Sonia he addresses how the unaccounted money comes during electorate campaign and reminds her that she has a major role in ending corruption in INC.
And yes, talent is a precious natural resource and we must nurture it.
Why does majority of students opt for either engineering or medicine after their plus two? It is because they are passionate towards these streams. Now, can there be anything more senseless than this answer? More or less, this is what even Chetan wants to say us. He says that Talent is a special ability and aptitude that gives people an edge in a particular field. It really is a book that is worth reading for all the others too. Also, the book is not just the highlights which I had mentioned, it has got a lot more general facts which the author describes in his own style.
Of course, even our political leaders at least those who can understand English , second or third generation business giants should also take a look at this book!!! Because we are Indians who currently fail to understand the importance of change even if we do, we do not know how.
Because we are the people who fail to keep our sparks alive and commit suicides, we are the people who cannot exhibit our talents boldly and also we are the people who think money is above all. So, I can say that this book is a modern Bhagavad Gita. It is not an exaggeration because I am not a fan of Bhagat personally.
The thing is that a good literature must be encouraged.
Dec 01, Saurav Karmakar rated it really liked it. So who is this famous chap? So here I am with a little insight of Mr. With this book Mr. Bhagat is stepping out from his comfort zone and trying to take up a responsibility of being true to a Youth Icon Image.
If you want to understand contemporary India, the problems that face it, and want to be a part of the solution, What Young India Wants is the book for you. Now you might have predicted what this book is all about.
Happy Reading: Jun 15, Subramanyam K. This review first appeared on: This book, the first non-fiction work of Chetan Bhagat, is actually a collection of selected essays and columns Chetan Bhagat has written for various Indian news papers.
Written in simple prose, these columns speak about various problems we Indians are confronting today. I am no big fan of Chetan Bhagat, I am one of those who cribbed about the way he write books, I was unhappy after I read Revolution However, I am happy Chetan Bhagat actually felt writing about social issues, wrote about them and got this book published.
The prime reason why I say this is, whether we like it or not Chatan Bhagat is a brand in India. For, perhaps he is one of the very few authors who is discussed in all sorts of places in this country. When a person of this sort and brand speaks about the burning problems of the country, they actually reach a wider audience.
Thus more people discuss about these issues and we can expect more and more probable solutions for these issues. The good job Chetan did in this book is that he actually proposed some solutions to each of these problems. This actually makes these solutions more and more debated by the youth of this nation. That if anything, is the best thing that can happen to this nation. Ok, coming to the book and the contents.
The book opens with a letter from Chetan where he explains the purpose behind the book. Then there are three sections in the book, with about 10 essays in each one of them.
The first one being Our Society, the second dedicated to Politics and third one that speaks about the problems of the youth. The book ends with 2 short stories, the latter is a perfect finish to the book.
The issues raised in the book are indeed real burning problems our country faces today. On the flip side, I felt that Chetan could have delved a little deeper than just giving a shallow treatment to the issues. I think any one who reads political stuff rather seriously would feel that this book lacks depth. It makes one feel that the author is jumping to conclusions a little quickly.
A news paper column must have had its own limitations but when it is coming as a book, I think the author does have the liberty to add a few more details.
Still, as I told earlier I am happy someone so popular wrote some stuff about burning issues and has increased the number of people who debate it. Do pick this book, it definitely deserves a read. It will definitely make us think. Aug 09, Socrates Chinniah rated it liked it Recommends it for: Debutants , Beginners , People interested in Social issues concerning India.
Complex issues in a really i mean really really simple way. People who are fascinated by works of Malcolm gladwell , Steven levitt , Tim harford or Pau Complex issues in a really i mean really really simple way. Why I bought the book: There are just so many authors who come into the writing arena aiming at Love, Drugs and sex and even become best sellers. It intrigued me to pick this book despite the fact that I was not his fan for his previous book but , for the theme chosen by CB in WYIW. WYIW is a pretty simple read; it does not complicate things and does not dive deep into the issues to come up with fascinating hypothesis and analysis.
And, at the end, he asks this important question: Unless we are all in agreement on what it is going to take to make our country better, how will things ever change?
If you want to understand contemporary India, the problems that face it, and want to be a part of the solution, What Young India Wants is the book for you. Chetan Bhagat is one of the most successful writer of all time especially for the youths of 21 st century. He had been in the list of most influential people in the world by Time Magazine.
