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".

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.


Novels


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.

Five Point Someone - What not to do at IIT! is a 2004 novel written by Chetan Bhagat, an alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad. This was his debut novel. It is one of the highest selling English novels published in India, and remained on the bestseller list until now since its release in 2004,tied along with other novels byChetan Bhagat.


Synopsis
The novel is set from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, in the period 1991 to 1995. It is about the adventures of three mechanical engineering students (and friends), Hari Kumar (the narrator), Ryan Oberoi, and Alok Gupta, who fail to cope with the grading system of the IITs. The three hostelmates - Alok, Hari and Ryan get off to a bad start in IIT - they screw up the first class quiz. And while they try to make amends, things only get worse. It takes them a while to realize: If you try and screw with the IIT system, it comes back to double screw you. Before they know it, they are at the lowest echelons of IIT society. They have a five-point-something GPA out of ten, ranking near the end of their class.
The book is narrated in the first person by Hari, with some small passages by his friends Ryan and Alok, as well as a letter by Hari's girlfriend Neha Cherian. It deals with the lives of the three friends whose elation on making it to one of the best engineering colleges in India is quickly deflated by the rigor and monotony of academic work. Most of the book deals with the numerous attempts by the trio to cope with and/or beat the system as well as Hari's fling with Neha who just happens to be the daughter of Prof. Cherian, the domineering head of the Mechanical Engineering Department.
While the tone of the novel is humorous, it takes some dark turns every now and then, especially when it comes to the families of the main characters. Most of the action, however, takes place inside the campus as the boys, led by the ever creative Ryan, frequently lamenting how the internationally lauded IIT system has stifled their creativity by forcing them to value grades more than anything else. Uninspiring teaching and numerous assignments adds to their woes although the boys do find a sympathizer in Prof. Veera, the new fluid mechanics professor.
