Known for his bestselling novels including Five Point Someone, One Night @ the Call Center, and Revolution 2020, award-winning author, columnist, and motivational speaker Chetan Bhagat is one of the most widely read contemporary Indian writers of his time. With millions of books sold worldwide and a fame that has reached celebrity status, Bhagat has, on numerous occasions, been called a game changer of India’s literary scene and a youth icon; a feat only few have managed to accomplish.

In and out of India, his success story has been much publicised. Called the “paperback king of India” by The Guardian, and “the biggest-selling English-language novelist ever in India” by The New York Times, Bhagat even made Times Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2010.

Much of Bhagat’s popularity is in the way he addresses the concerns of India’s youths; writing in a language they can relate to has made his works accessible and relevant to them, similarly making him an authentic voice for them. Apart from his blockbuster novels, Bhagat also writes for English and Hindi newspapers including Times of India and Dainik Bhaskar, mainly focusing on youth-related subjects and issues on national development. Elsewhere he delivers motivational talks and speeches to a range of colleges as well as private and government organisations around India.

Join Chetan in his first public appearance in Singapore, as he shares his inspirations, aspirations, and his leap of faith that has taken him from the comforts of a banking job to the youth icon that he is today.
