Personal life
Chetan Bhagat was born in New Delhi and studied in the Army public school. He studied Mechanical Engineering at The Indian Institute Of Technology (IIT) and then studied at Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM) where he was named "The Best Outgoing Student". He worked as an Investment Banker with Deutsche bank for eleven years in Hong Kong and moved to Mumbai with his wife Anusha in 2008. Later he gave up his job to devote his entire time to his writings. He is married to Anusha, who was his classmate in IIM.


Writing Style
Bhagat's writing style tends to be simple, with linear narratives and vivid storytelling. His protagonists tend to be named after Lord Krishna, like Hari, Shyam, Govind or Krishna. All his books have a number in the title (eg. 'five' in the first, 'one' in the second, 'three' in the third and 'two' in his latest book.) When asked about this Chetan replied 'I'm a banker, I can't get numbers out of my head."
In response to poor reviews from critics, Bhagat described the books as entertainment, rather than attempts at serious literature.
He is a columnist with Dhainik Bhaskar & The Times Of India, and writes on political issues.

As a columnist
Bhagat has an op-ed column in Dainik Bhaskar, a large Hindi newspaper and another at The Hindustan Times, an English daily. He says "The main purpose of the books and films is to entertain, but the columns allow me to give my views on how the nation should be run."
Some of his columns have been discussed in the Indian Parliament. His articles are written in simple English to achieve mass appeal. He also visits Educational Institutions in India to give motivational talks. His speech 'Spark' in Pune attained widespread fame and was published in many newspapers.
