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. There are few habits of Ketan Bhagat which I actually admire like On Twitter He ‘Retweet‘ everything people say for/against him. And he always reply everyone one. Most people lack this quality. Honestly, He could’ve made lot of public statements by now on people who are saying ‘crap’against him , but I guess Ketan sir is having lot of serenity.
No where he is used his brother’s name or asked his brother to help in writing or promoting his work. And I guess we all know if Chetan Bhagat would’ve promoted same book it would’ve been national seller on pre order itself but Ketan didn’t took that power as an advantage. You know we should respect someone who is not using all the powers he has because he want to make His work successful on his own. But Still some people are using ‘Social networking sites’ to make fun of him or for saying things against him , his book and brother. Which I found astonishingly stupid. I mean how about, you try to say same thing on face? Also how about why don’t you read the book then judge ? Better than making fun on yourself.Oh Oh ! how about you write one and then wait for us to start saying things against you without knowing you or your work. Sounds awkward , no ?
Statements like :-

Say Hello to the brother of probably world’s most influential writer
Etc are made by known faces of Indian Literature Industry.
Some saint once said
‘Agar koi apke khilaf bole yaani tarakee kar rahe ho app’
Ketan Bhagat is finest example of it. And somewhere I know his book will be sure shot bestseller NOT BECAUSE ‘He is Chetan’s brother’ but because he is good writer and You’ve right to say whatever you feel like but just remember What goes around comes back around Today you are saying against him tomorrow maybe not him but his fans will say AGAINST YOU.
