What Young India Wants by Chetan Bhagat
The book raises very valid points and problems: corruption, lack of trust and human values, corruption, problems with education system, corruption, problem with economy, etc. Bhagat wants us to revive Indian values. He believes that they will change us for good. There are many problems with that idea:. Even though he worked at an investment bank; he uses wealth and money interchangeably — as if they are the same thing. Most of his analysis are so narrow and shallow that you wonder why would anyone publish this crap.

“The deva-s love the performer of yajña, not the one who slumbers” — Ṛgveda 8.2.18
This nicely packaged book carries CBs articles, published in news papers on multiple issues ranging from education, poverty, corruption, politics and student suicide. But, this book as a whole, gives a whole new perspective to the readers for all these problems. On completing the book, I could figure out the reason why CB took first ten pages of the book to share his journey with readers. The book is divided in three sections: our society, politics and youth. So, if you can read all the articles one by one then two short stories at will feel like a dessert after a great meal. And the book ends with a personal note of author to his readers.
What Young India Wants- The fav. This book is I think first Non Fiction from writer and No doubt he has done great work. Writer expose many inspirational space inside young Indians mind which they want to be cultivate in environment of globalization. Writer itself belongs to market writing and banking where ideas get mixed with money, so I understand that he get nerves of young Indians. Book drags you deep Inside Young Indian Minds, their idea towards future India, their urge to explore and utilize the opportunism given by globalization.
Hence he gives his own life story and finally leads to a noble conclusion that as he commands a huge young reader base who read his books and listen to his motivational speeches, he decided to tap into this youth pulse to spread ideas of how India can develop faster and better. The book is divided into four parts Society, politics, youth, Two Stories each of which have important subtopics. As it was published after mid issues discussed are very current too. I especially liked the following points The highly educated, talented do not set up institutions in India due to nonprofit clause attached which leads to lot of bribery.
