The primary fact of he being famous is because of his simple english.If you can’t communicate with another person using simple english, then raise up your communication standards. Amir Khan from 3 idiots warns you again. Remember Chatur’s dialogue of definition of a machine? and the amir khan’s revenge by his definition of books? Chetan’s simple language which a person with average indian vocabulary can understand makes him a super writer in India. Of the lots, An average Indian is actually not even accustomed to read novels of Salman Rushdie or Amitav Ghosh. Its as witty as “Our life on the Earth is like a prepaid card with limited validity” 🙂

Aam Admi (Common Man ) Stories.
You would love a story which you could relate to yourself or someone you know, won’t you? This is the second point why we love chetan Bhagat write ups.Chetan’s books are easy to read and digest with casual perusal because its a middle class story.

His typical marketing techniques by selling his books at very cheap prices so as to make sure the book reaches masses for whom he has written it.And look, he is a brand now and its because he had planned it very early. That makes him extraordinarily awesome salesperson.
Transformation of a non-reader to a reader
The fact is even if he is a over rated or over hyped writer, he is the most well known writer in the country. Most of the people who don’t have the patience to at least read 10 pages, chetan bhagat has taught people how to read in one go. He has transformed most of the non reading indians to reader. You can love him, or hate him but he is one damn hard guy to ignore!
He constantly tells young people to not to take our life seriously. well thats precisely the advise we want. Life is definitely not to be taken seriously. A average life has only 2,500 weekends. did you think this way before? He puts it very smoothly to the youth by asking them to bunk classes and goof up interviews. do it before you actually regret for not doing it. He swims with the youth tide and belongs to one of us.
