India Positive: Chetan Bhagat's next non-fiction book set to release this May
Popular author Chetan Bhagat on Wednesday announced the launch of his new non-fiction book titled India Positive. The book comprises essays examining a gamut of subjects such as education, employment, Goods and Services Tax (GST), corruption and casteism.
Reportedly, India Positive published by Westland Publications will be released in May this year. The book also consists of tweets that highlight and touch upon the current issues that need focus today.
Sharing his viewpoints on the new book, Bhagat said, "I believe my country has more good things than bad. I have to focus on what is more important, i.e., capturing the diminishing interest of the youth in politics by attempting to provide a simple take on the political issues and arguments in the country.
"This book covers each and everything that has happened in the past year, be it employment, corruption or the systems of the economy. The aim is, by reading this book, one will never be ill-informed about India's issues."
In the book's blurb, the 2 States author has asked questions such as "Does it make any difference to the ordinary citizen which party is in power? Whether it's a majority or a coalition?"
He further wrote: "What can we do to better job prospects for India's youth? How can we create a more equal society? What can we do about social media warriors and trolls?"
"In a world ridden with negativity, these simply written, perceptive and solution-driven essays are a must-read for anyone invested in the present and future of India," the blurb reads.
The Mumbai-based author's last book, The Girl in Room 105, was released in 2018. It was also announced in a Facebook LIVE on Bhagat's official page.
