But that does not even begin to cover everything I did. It required hours upon hours of working on a plan and approaching people and shouting about my book from the rooftops- figuratively.
The thing is, I am a very shy person, almost reclusive, so for me to step out of my comfort zone and sell my product was not easy. But I had to grit my teeth and do it.
Sweet Escape Series Boxset
One marketing gimmick that worked favorably for me was a series of posters that I designed for my important characters. While the book has an ensemble cast, I chose six of the most important characters and made individual posters, and gave a brief four-line blurb to each of them. These posters managed to garner quite a bit of curiosity. Another important aspect that I worked hard on was the blurb of the book. I read somewhere that writing the blurb is tougher than writing the story itself and I could not agree more.
A blurb is essentially a word summary of your book that is not only interesting, but is also crisp and has to hook the audience. Simple enough right? Hence, I thought we needed a term like 'Half girlfriend'. Because, in India, that is what most men get. Madhav Jha, a rural boy from Dumraon , a village in Bihar , comes to meet the author, who is actually Chetan Bhagat, and leaves behind a few journals from his half-girlfriend, who he believes has died. Chetan Bhagat calls him up the next morning to hear his story.
He starts by describing his trouble entering St. Stephens , as his English wasn't good enough. Being a good basketball player, Madhav gets finally through sports quota. The rich and beautiful Riya Somani is a girl from Delhi , who is also selected through the sports quota. Madhav and Riya become close 'friends' due to their association with basketball. Madhav wants to make her his girlfriend, but she refuses. He demands that they get physical. Offended by his obscene ultimatum Deti hai to de, warna katle , Riya parts company with him and tells him not to talk to her anymore.
A year later, Riya marries her childhood friend Rohan and settles in London, where Rohan has a big business. Finding Delhi unbearable on grounds of losing Riya, Madhav settles in his hometown and helps his mother, Rani Sahiba, who runs her school.
Seeing the condition of the school — no proper classes or toilets — Madhav decides to meet local MLA Ojha for financial help, but the MLA refuses to help. Madhav tries his best to convince Gates to fund his school, but to do so he has to prepare a speech, preferably in English.
In the course of his struggle, he comes across Riya, who is now a divorcee. Riya helps him prepare the speech. They two are successful in their fundraising, but, after the speech, Riya leaves a letter for him which states that she is in the last stage of lung cancer and has only 3 months left to survive.
Riya's letter confesses her love for Madhav but states she has three months to live. You are hurting me. I want you. Now we come to the part of the very degrading and derogatory comment. The one making the rounds of the social network as I had previously said. You are using physical force on me. And you don't help when you say "deti he to de yato kat le.
Thankfully, the heroine has the common sense and dignity to leave. God help me I was skimming through the whole monotonous dialouges and the whole "Oh shit, saying that was a bad idea. Oh and here's a gem. So Madhav now realizing that I have disrespected the girl, degrading her in the process, and she is obviously mad and doesn't want to talk to me.
So what will I do? Stalk her, Of course! In his own word, he justified stalking her because she wouldn't return his calls or reply or talk to him.
Anyway, finally she agrees to talk to him.
The Girl In Room 105
After he had stalked her to some changing room and he asked her to talk to her. She hasn't, thankfully, forgiven him completely. But she wants to move past the whole incident understandably so. At No one is forcing her. She is dropping out of college. Because she is rich girl and she has a money to fall back on if doesn't wanna do a degree. She just wanna get away from her sexist relative.
The irony, but okay. So she leaves for London marrying her childhood rakhi brother because he is such a great match. And Madhav ends up sad, messing up all the interviews. Anyway he declines all offers and comes back to his village to aid hi mother run a school. Lot of monotonous narration with Bill Gates making guests appearances.
And Madhav running into Riya again in 2 years. She is divorced and hence available. And Madhav is as horny as ever. She teaches him English by making him read Chetan Bhagat novel. And she leaves him there with a Dear John note that went like - I'm paraphrasing, hey I'm dying of cancer. In 3 months.
Sorry about not reciprocating your feelings. But now I love you. Dont try to find me. Marry someone and all. Ok bye now.
So then like the crazy stalker he is, he goes after her. I mean at least respect the dying girl's wish. But NO. So he goes back to her place. Tries to find her. Using his "Royal" connections to make bank managers give him her bank details.
Inquire in her work. Go to her house. He does not find her. Then he receives these mysterious journals of Riya where she basically provides with all the backstory because the the writer was too lazy to develop the plot. And oh hey view spoiler [ she ain't dead.
To which Chetan Bhagat asks him to mind his language. Let me just mention- Chetan Bhagat chapters are from the first person pov and so is Madhav's. And they just happen anywhere and you're like wait who's head are we in?
Neither place is nice to be in. Anyway, view spoiler [ Of course she isn't!
She just faked the whole thing to get rid of him in my opinion. Who wouldn't? Finally on the last day, he conveniently finds her while she croons You're beautiful by James Blunt. And Riya just falls right back in his stalker arms. Because hey, dude stalked me from India to Manhatten. And he found me in Manhatten. When I dont even perform with my real name. So yes, I will sleep with him. All communicated with no words and all stares. Because writing actual meaningful conversations is soo overrated.
Anyway, something more happened with the lines of 'happy ending I think. I am keeping that much out so that I haven't basically ranted the whole plot. You pick the book and READ to know. Why should I be the only one to suffer?!
All I know is I was happy, jubilant, ecstatic that this ordeal ended. AND the rant is over. I'm never picking up his book again no matter what my friends thinks. And CB fans who will say he makes people read, good for him. View all 17 comments. Aug 27, Ronak Gajjar rated it did not like it Shelves: Half Review - Full ka toh zamana hi noi hain! You cannot pick up a chocolate when someone has just mentioned a death.
Why it always have to be the same cycle: You know what? For writing this trash out and misleading youth with these craps!
View all 88 comments. Oct 02, Ankit Dubey rated it really liked it. I think Chetan Bhagat gets way more stick than he deserves. The truth is, he writes and India reads. Most of his criticism stems from the purists or the "hard-core literature fans" who can't stand the fact that he is the most popular writer from India. Yes, his writing style is nothing compared to an Ayn Rand, a Rohinton Mistry or a Khaled Hosseini, but someone who is selling so much must be doing something right.
And he is.
Bhagat always takes up issues which resonate with the masses. In Half Girlfriend, the protagonist is a Bihari guy named Madhav who has a hard time speaking English. Now what can be more common than that? I can envision thousands of youth in Bihar, who will never read "To Kill a Mocking Bird", but who will readily see themselves in Madhav and will have no difficulty in comprehending Bhagat's simplistic yet charming writing style. The beauty of this process is, some, if not many, will start seeing reading in a different light and will become become readers for life Hopefully picking up books with more intellectual depth and profound life lessons.
This, I feel, is Bhagat's biggest contribution. The repeated references to Madhav's poor English is annoying at times, but almost every book has a phase where the reader fights within himself to either put it down or soldier along. I chose to read on. And the book did hold my attention.
Till the last page. I have read my fair share of classics and some have bored me to death. Half Girlfriend had me hooked. Its a charming love story. You will end up rooting for Madhav Well, if you don't hold a blinkered opinion of Bhagat's work, that is.
There is the inevitable drama.
Deaths near me today
Almost Bollywood like. But it is Chetan Bhagat we are talking about. Will you ever dare to criticise Khaled Hosseini for describing the beauty of Afghanistan? Will you lambast Dan Brown for going into minute details of Roman Architecture? Well, no. You will just say that its their own style. This slightly surreal drama is Bhagat's style. And its good. He has his own niche. It's a different story altogether that a new "generation" of young writers flourished in India after Five Point Someone, trying to imitate Bhagat's style and ended up hurting his already many times questioned reputation.
Bhagat touches on the problem of rural education in India and the book also suggests ways to improve one's English. The techniques may seem too raw for the average Goodreads user or a regular reader, but in truth, they are effective.
A 15 year boy reading this book in Bihar will understand this more than you and I will ever will. Half Girlfriend is a very good read. A sweet love story.
An avid reader can easily finish it in two-three sessions. It will be lapped up by India's youth. It is a bestseller for sure.
Chetan Bhagat's legend becomes stronger. I just hope that people digest the fact that he is a good writer who knows his strengths and sticks by them. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you. You Sir, have all my respect. From a fan who has read enough books to not be classified as a "Only Chetan Bhagat books guy.

But i can say one thing for sure, this was the only book by Chetan Bhagat i could stand!! He comes from a "not so royal anymore" royal family from the state of Bihar. Bihar is one of the most backward 3 stars!!! Bihar is one of the most backward states in India and is generally looked down upon by many. Since he lived in Bihar most of his life his english is pretty screwed up and I for one am not the judgmental type when it comes to not knowing english, and i also thought this book was better because of this detail.
SO when he goes to New Delhi, for college to the best college in India actually he is made fun of for his spoken english. This is where he meets Riya, a tall, Beautiful girl who just like him plays basket ball for the collage team. They get talking and eventually become reallllyyyy close. But wait there is one problem, according to her it was just friendship but according to him it was just LOVE, hmmm not the first time you have seen a guy friendzoned.
It was her fault as well, even if the guy u friendzoned kisses u and asks to for more u say "NO. Riya does, she leads him on. She makes him hungry for more and she goes to his room after playin basket ball cuz she wants a nap!
He goes to apologize but she tells him that she was getting married to her family friend Rohan. Just when i was like The book actually got better and better. Madhav though not fully recovered from his heart break , goes back to his village to help run a village school which was started by his mother t provide free education to the poor.
He meets divorced Riya again and she offers him help with his english as he had to make a speech for BILL GATES who was coming on a visit to India for sponsoring organisations working for the society's betterment.
He needed a speech that convinces Gates foundation to provide him the grant. It dealt with major issues that India faces today and how we can achieve anything with determination and hard work. It really touched me, how much of suffering ppl in Indian villages face, especially the kids. He gets the grant and when he looks around for Riya she disappears leaving him a letter saying she has lung cancer and that she has only a little time left and not to come look for her.
He is hear broken again. Also at the end I figured out that the "not knowing english" was just left there hanging in mid air. I thought this aspect ,if it were made use of in a more substantial way would have made it a little more interesting.
So the book wraps up with a happily ever after. He gets the girl, he gets the kid. YAY ME! View all 14 comments. Oct 26, Manan Puri rated it it was ok. A portrayed as loser guy: Check 2. A girl supposedly out of his league and one page dedicated to the introduction her looks: Check 3. Guy's love at first sight because of smell of her perfume or any random reason: Check 4.
His pursuit in his head to get her to his bed: Check 5. Girl eventually falling for him after incessant attempts for 4: Check 6. One page dedicated to the love making: Check 7. Weave a story around Check 'Friends with Benefits' or "I can walk Englis' is a more ap 1.
Check 'Friends with Benefits' or "I can walk Englis' is a more apt title for the book than Half Girlfriend, which might have happened because CB picked any two random consecutive words he saw on the first page he opened. This time, its a screenplay waiting for Deepika Padukone to accept the girl's role and the movie can kick-off to make cr. Just when you think the 'twists' in the plot can't get any more miraculous, CB comes up with another one which can give randomness another random beating.
He even randomly praises his brilliance as a writer for, wait a sec In the end, CB's popularity is at that level where he can tell his detractors "Padta hai to pad, warna kat le"!!!

Nov 06, Nikhat Hetavkar marked it as gave-up-on Shelves: I've read every Chetan Bhagat book if we can call those sentences lumped together a book only to argue with my friends as to why I absolutely depise his writing.
So again a CB novel arrives on the market. And every social media page is flooded with my friends I may have to disown them after this exclaiming "Chetan Bhagat - My favourite author" "The best author" and likewise idiotic comments. After flipkart taunting me for weeks, I finally decided to pick up the book and form a well devel Hah.
After flipkart taunting me for weeks, I finally decided to pick up the book and form a well developed opinion about the hate this stupid title with its smug announcement of its bollywood movie along with the book release inspire in me.
Thankfully this time I did not actually BUY the book. I borrowed it from a friend. I looked up to see my bookshelf staring at me and obviously judging me. I dont have a hyper active imagination for nothing Nope, I decided.
Life's way too short to read shitty books like these when there are so many great books I still need to read as my shelf reminded me not so gently. Just plain NO. Life's way too short. And I am not picking this book up again even if it means never getting to correct moronic idiots in their rant about the brilliance of CB.
I am DONE. May 28, Nu-Jahat-Jabin rated it did not like it. View all 4 comments. Oct 03, Umesh Kesavan rated it did not like it Shelves: I thought Chetan Bhagat can't get worser than " Revolution " but after reading his latest novel , Revolution feels like a better book.
So,looking forward to his next novel so that I can feel that "half girlfriend" is a better one. View all 6 comments. Oct 29, Priyanka rated it did not like it. I quote:: But I felt something deep inside, strong enough for my heart to say, You have to talk to this girl Actual rating - HALF star So the story goes like this: Read the book at your own risk. Knowing that you will never be able to "un-read" it. Knowing that you could have spent that time reading something else I would suggest reading a user manual, it at least makes sense.
Why is it that people can't get over the "A guy and a girl can never be friends" crap? Also, this book is wrong on so many levels! Why would you do something even after the lady repeatedly says 'No'.
It is never a yes. I can't believe the author who claims to be a "feminist" could write something like this. Chetan Bhagat has fallen to new found lows to write a book only in hopes of making it into a masala blockbuster movie. View all 5 comments.When Madhav attempts to track her down, he finds that she has cut all ties in India and has disappeared. I love how Chetan Bhagat writes. Enhanced Typesetting: This is from the book - " 'She stopped and glared at me until I let go', 'Madhav, please understand, I'm not comfortable with all this.
But I've read enough reviews to conclude that the reactions are generally polarised. The author used different places to make it interesting for me to just keep reading the book. After three months of extensively searching, he finds her at a bar and the two reconcile and finally consummate their relationship.
Initially the film based on the novel starred Kriti Sanon who inaugurated the book, but was replaced by Shraddha Kapoor. They get talking and eventually become reallllyyyy close.
