Chetan Bhagat is the author of many ‘blockbuster’ books. These include his recent Half Girlfriend, 2 States, which was made into a movie starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor, and Making India Awesome, a book of analyses and comments that ‘provides inspired solutions to the country’s most intractable problems—poverty, unemployment, corruption, violence against women, communal violence, religious fundamentalism, illiteracy and more’.

On the occasion of his birthday, we take a look at what we can learn from Mr Bhagat’s public messages.
