One of India's bestselling authors brings you another interesting and thought-provoking book called What Young India Wants. The future of any nation lies in the hands of the youth of the country and this book explores the problems faced by them. Patriotism is almost unheard of from the youth of today and this book looks into the reasons as to why we have reached this state of affairs. What Young India Wants looks into some of the crucial questions asked by young people in India. The book takes you through the reasons for the high suicide rate among students, the extent to which corruption has infiltrated the governing systems of the country and whether democracy is truly being fulfilled in the nation. The book details a critical analysis of the complicated problems faced by India in the 21st century. It also presents possible solutions and invites you to engage with the issues discussed, allowing you to see the problem from its various dimensions.
But does everyone truly love this person? So who is he? You might have predicted what this book is all about. What Young India Wants is a collection of Mr. Society, Politics and Youth. A catchy title and flashy cover do half of the job read grabbing the attention while rest is done by Mr. However, that doesn't mean I am his Blind follower because I too use my brain when it comes to thinking about social and political issues, but his articles are indeed worked as a Brain Tonic, mostly.

Sep 25, Subroto rated it liked it Shelves: This book will be remembered less for the exact solutions he's proposed for the problems of India many might debate that they are too simplistic and also India is not that simple an animal but more for what it stands for - his encouraging us to start thinking - and to start thinking in whatever capacity we are and to never stop thinking cos that is to lose hope - lose hope in our country ever getting better and thus letting the problem fester.
He encourages us to be impatient and to try and use all juggad one can to solve the problems of this country: Chetan through his own example leaves back a message for us to not just oppose and debate - but to propose a solution - however simple or rudimentary it might sound.
In such times, he makes a case for us to keep looking for solutions in his own inimitable style. His style of writing remains what many would say high school. Simple sentences. No words for which you need to use the dictionary.
It takes some time to get used to it but after some time you start enjoying his simplicity. Most appealing about this book is the part where he on his own confesses that he may not be right about whatever he's stating here - that's not the intent.
There could always be many solutions to a problem. All he's saying is that lets not in all our analysis paralysis forget that the problem exists. Debate is good for college hall rooms and year long research and theses are better suited for phd students - not to take decisions for a billion strong country.
Chetan Bhagat haters be damned - I totally loved this book and will recommend it to each and every young man and woman I meet! Aug 31, Sukanya Sengupta rated it it was ok. First of all, for all of you who have read Chetan Bhagat's previous books, you would definitely not search for great literary content when you pick up one of his books. The author himself claims so!
His aim of writing this book was just to voice his opinions about various issues concerning India. We face those issues everyday, he just shortlisted them and produced them in a manner any layman would understand. So for specialists and serious readers, this book is a big NO!
If you read this book fr First of all, for all of you who have read Chetan Bhagat's previous books, you would definitely not search for great literary content when you pick up one of his books. If you read this book from a teenager's point of view, it might make you aware of the various aspects which makes India a mess at this point of time. I'm in my early twenties , i didn't find the book boring, neither did it touch me big time. But i always liked CB's opinions and approach to problems.
A thumbs up for that!

But does everyone truly love this person?
So who is he? You might have predicted what this book is all about. What Young India Wants is a collection of Mr. Society, Politics and Youth. A catchy title and flashy cover do half of the job read grabbing the attention while rest is done by Mr.
However, that doesn't mean I am his Blind follower because I too use my brain when it comes to thinking about social and political issues, but his articles are indeed worked as a Brain Tonic, mostly.
First ten pages are dedicated to his life and his journey as an Engineer to Investment banker to Policy Maker to,finally, become an Author and the reason why he decided to write this book, which is good to read.
However, the society aspect of our country is really money oriented and, for many, having money is the biggest problem than being Rich. So here Mr. Bhagat tried to tell us what politicians are NOT doing and how to make them do it. Being a neutral about political parties, he covered both aspects of politics, ruling party and opposition. This section is really good food for thought but when I look at the current political structure of India, it seems highly impractical.
Nevertheless, it indeed confers a strong message to bring the change, and if we really want to bring a change, it must start from individuals. Good for discussion, hard to implement, but Not impossible. All articles in youth section are fun to read and are well thought.
Stop that smirk spreading across your face! And a surprise element is two fictional short stories at the end of this section. Stories are good, and gives your brain a little relax after reading so many articles on a wide variety of issues. Now Review Time. Bhagat lived up to his great image of Grammar Killer; however, at some places it felt appropriate but missing words worsen it on many places. A little more depth of thought would have brought some impact and instead of taking articles as-it-is, a little rewrite would have made it a Must Read.
Jul 11, Aditi rated it really liked it. The book throws light to these questions giving answers to some of them. Written in the simplistic style of Chetan Bhagat the book is the compilation of some of his columns and speeches discussing the society, the politics and the youth of our country. It starts with the introduction of the author himself and his transition from an engineer to the author.
The book may not answer all our questions but gives us a chain of thoughts that may lead to some solution of some of the never ending problems of our country. Without targeting anyone, issues such as corruption, nepotism, casteism, vote bank politics etc.
Comparison with countries like U.
A and China has been made and we are asked to question the set of values we follow and the importance of money in our life. The first few pages itself reveal why India is not such a nice destination for foreign investments.
The problem of Indian voters due to servility, injustice or devising has been emphasized. Education has been an important part of the Youth section of the book and several suggestions have been proposed for the educational reforms. Problems of the farmers, the seven sisters of the north-eastern India along with that of minorities are not only discussed but given a tangible solution as well.
Why is money so important to us and why showing money is even more important? Why are colleges available in quantity and not in quality?
Why fiteen out of twenty eight states are suffering from one or the other internal conflicts? Why is Kashmir still a topic disputed over and over again? In the page compilation the author have tried to cover each and every, small and bigger aspect of the present day India. Not each of the above questions has a justifiable answer or a quick solution but they can be given a thought.
Even though issues like Kingfisher Debt, CBI autonomy, Bhopal Gas Tragedy have been discussed the book is strictly for those who are novice to such subjects.
Experts in any fields may find the book too simple and too boring. The book is compiled for the masses and majorly for the youth of India. Oct 20, Santhosh rated it it was ok. Chetan Bhagat's novels would quite obviously ensure nobody in their right mind would expect literary excellence in his writing. However, I've liked him in the couple of his early interviews that I've watched where he comes forth in a clear and lucid manner, without a hint of apology, embarrassment or sarcasm, on why he writes the way he writes.
It's pure busine Chetan Bhagat's novels would quite obviously ensure nobody in their right mind would expect literary excellence in his writing. It's pure business, and if there are benefits of first-time readers and worldly awareness, then all the better.
However, over the last few years, he has slowly picked up steam as the voice of young India, and to satisfy my curiosity on where he now stood as a thinker and writer for what young India wants, I picked up the book. The book comes across as a collection of slightly better-edited versions of his TOI articles, which is saying that it's one long rant.
It's hard to believe, considering the naivete and simple-mindedness that comes across in most of the pieces, that he has really studied economics and finance in his IIM A days, has worked at mid-level managerial and leadership positions in the corporate world, and has been travelling around as a youth icon for the last few years.
Even taking at face value the stated aim of the book to increase the awareness and broaden the outlook of his target group of semi-urban teens and early tweens, which is unquestionably laudable, the book works and fails on its over simplicity. While explaining the issues in simple terms would help his reader understand the basic issues, the book should have aspired just to be the base on which the reader could slowly start to grasp and comprehend the complexity of the issues at the microeconomic and macroeconomic levels and as the trigger for further discussion and learning on the same.
Similarly, the book should have worked upon the fact that there are no easy solutions and charted out some of the ways, again from the ground level to the top, in which the issues can be tackled. Instead, the 3 page essays start and stop at the basic level, providing a very simplistic, black and white case analysis in the style of the angry young man movies of old. And hey, don't blame me for expecting more from a book, Chetan Bhagat's as it may be, that is titled What Young India Wants and is queerly targeted at the same Young India and purportedly attempts to answer questions such as "Why do our students regularly commit suicide?
Aug 08, Anoop Chatterjee rated it it was ok. The author tries to bring out some important issues facing India today. Though the book begins with the understanding that politicians are only a mirror of the contemporary culture and mindset of the society in general and that blaming the politicians alone is unfair the general society is also to blame, the rest of the book is primarily a rant about how corrupt the politicians are.
The book has its own highs and lows in the topics it raises and the solutions it proposes. It touches upon some les The author tries to bring out some important issues facing India today. It touches upon some less discussed issues like 'Is diversity helping India or is creating confusion?
However the line of thought and the solutions told are immature and one gets a feeling that the core problem is not ddeply internalized. The issues raked up are of grave importance but the solutions and analysis are often childish. The problems should have been analysed more to reach viable and comprehensive solutions.
The problems that face Young India are grave and what Young India wants is not a quick solution but a good solution. Jul 12, Darshana Unnikrishnan rated it it was ok Shelves: View all 5 comments. Aug 09, Diane rated it liked it. As part of my renewed interest in India, I picked up this collection of essays by a popular English-writing novelist, Chetan Bhagat. Bhagat's novels are not only bestsellers in India, but Bollywood movies as well.
Bhagat admits that he is just one lone, idealistic voice in messy jumble of Indian politics, but he makes a worthy attempt to identify some of India's most grievous issues. For example, in the blurb for the book, Bhagat poses a number of questions, first and foremost, "Why do our stude As part of my renewed interest in India, I picked up this collection of essays by a popular English-writing novelist, Chetan Bhagat.
For example, in the blurb for the book, Bhagat poses a number of questions, first and foremost, "Why do our students regularly commit suicide? The education system is so terribly designed that competition for the few, top-ranked schools is literally bloody. Without one of their coveted degrees, even brilliant students can wind up as a low paid clerk.
It's not the prospect of such work that drives young people to suicide, but the dishonor of the family. This one terrible phenomena encapsulates several of India's worst sins.
The entire government, including educational facilities, is rotted by endemic corruption. Bribes,nepotism,and theft are commonplace. Combine this with a hyper-awareness of the family's status within the community, couched in terms such as "family honor," "duty of firstborn," and "we will be finished if you don't succeed," and you get kids pressured to succeed at all costs in a system that is rigged from the start.
Since I've gone on my own little editorial rampage, I may as well take it one step further. When I was in India in , I read a lot about crimes against women.
It was horrifying. I also felt quite uncomfortable,especially in rural areas, because men will stare quite boldly at a woman's body. In the intervening years. I've heard that there have been many changes. Indians who have immigrated to the United States are vehement when discussing the issue: It doesn't happen, except maybe in some low class families.
The rape and murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey on a bus last year invoked a global awareness of India's complicity in crimes against its women. This recent BBC documentary link: Aug 01, Crysta rated it did not like it Shelves: After reading this book I have come to the conclusion that Chetan Bhagat must be considered a "voice for the youth of [India]" because his level of nuance and critical thought is basically indistinguishable from that of a well-intentioned but not very self-aware 12 year old boy.

Build some schools. Electorate - Vote better. Who knows how, but do it. And by "basic messages" I mean they really were that basic. At least the lack of complexity or any new insights made for a quick, light read.
Mar 02, Priya rated it it was ok. How confused is this man who wants to change India about himself? I find wasting so much of hardwork and money in such prestigious fields stupid but he chooses to rant about it for first 10 pages. He is the first author who brags so much about himself I've come across. And after reading all the bragging I can't help but being opinionated about him. Now, as far as main content is concerned, most of the things are far from reality.
There are some really good points made too. Maybe I am judgemental about Chetan Bhagat or maybe I am right. But now he seems to me like some narcissist who is really not concerned about the topic he mentioned, a person who just blahs and people applaud.
Aug 31, Tushar Mangl rated it it was ok. Intentions of the book are good. The topics picked up by the author are good and relevant but they lack depth and discussion appears shallow. As if we are chatting about the world in a cocktail party. Aug 07, Subodh rated it liked it. It is just a okay book.
