Chetan Bhagat is truly the great Indian novelist. He echoes the voices of the people of the young generation. A feat he repeats effortlessly on his new novel, “One Indian Girl”, where he brings forth this view of feminism that has been very popular with “edgy” gang of Internet trolls, the right – wing people, and almost everyone else, except perhaps women. Don’t worry, this is not an accusing rant. In fact, I love that people read Bhagat, it gives a space for new readership to grow, a person might pick up a Durjoy Datta next, and graduate to Nicolas Sparks, and might end up reading Nora Roberts at the end of the day. It is intriguing, he levels people. All from the jocks reading in popular schools who had scoffed at the “nerds” who were always drenched in books, to the young Indian boy trying to find sexual pleasure in a confined space. I wonder how many pre-pubescent teens will find their sexual release through Radhika, I would hope not many.
The DEViant is a story spun around friendship, love, betrayal, and life as it is. Shankar has bewitched the book so that it keeps the reader in its grasp until the very last page is flipped and the words have finished telling us their story. As if that were not sufficient, he has further enchanted it in a way that the story and the characters keep playing in the reader’s mind long after the book has been put aside.

Museums, factories, galleries, gardens, and planetariums, in the city and during vacation times outside. He was getting really excited, but he did not know where he was going and that is why he kept pestering her with the question.

The stock market was in turmoil again. It had dropped a hundred points without warning and no one had any clue about what to expect next. All attention, as usual, turned to The Sage.
“It was the bad forecast for China’s manufacturing that was responsible for the fall,” said The Sage, “And unless the situation in the Ukraine changes significantly, we can expect further reaction.”
The voice resonated within his head for the days to come. He could not forget how malicious it had sounded as she commanded him out of their bedroom. He loved her, he knew that. He knew that he was the one who was meant to be with her forever.
“Hey, can you click our picture?” The lady sitting by his side in the cafe asked him.
