  1. Simply Genius, there is some sparking similarity between You & Rahul Gandhi… Dont You Think So ? As You both are working towards Development of India & most importantly getting Youth Involved in countries progress. A perfect 10.
    “Grow Green, Feel Green, & Be Green”

    Completely true….even I feel our ministers are involved in matters which are of lesser importance and make them the headlines whereas there are much much more important subjects to be taken care of and which the reason they are there in those ministerial positions….I feel our ministers need to broader their outlook and look into those things which will help India and the Indians eventually…..

    wooow he’s great he rocks to the core!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. ashim avtar says:

    u are absolutely right and seriously this should be seen by every minister today.dude i would suggest one more thing please never join politics ,u can change and guide us towards tremendous development with ur say and pen ,not by becoming a stupid,good for nothing moron….(indian politicians)

  5. shivam says:

    i completely agree to u. actually we all should understand that they all are doing a fabulous job investingbtheir life in shaping d future ofyouth nd nt themselvas running towards money nd fame. so they should atleast be paid what they surely nd really…………… deserve..

  6. ravi thapliyal says:

    I completely agree with the thing that they(the IIT people) should be paid well ‘coz they’re exploring talent & India only has talent(not a big capital like u said).

    thanx…

  7. Hi Chetan,

    Myself Raina, Journalist with DNA Navi Mumbai edition and a great fan of your’s… You are a columnist in the paper where I work and I have been its regular reader…I am eagerly waiting to get my hands on 2 states and looking forward for its launch in Mumbai (I hope to attend that though I am not too sure due to my work commitments).. M an aspiring novelist and hope to be one few years down the line (need your blessings and guidance for the same :)).. I wish you all the best for your ‘2 states’ and all other books those are yet to be released… :)

    Regards,
    Raina

    You are right about this ‘micro-management’ thing, this is really uncalled for from the ministry. It’s a pity that instead of bringing the other Universities with potential on financial par with the IIX/s he is passing a statement like “you are getting better than the UGC controlled universities,” thereby creating an illusion that these people are actually getting more that what they ideally should have.

    Everyone’s yearning for a brand name to represent India, so you should be prepared to make the sacrifices as well. drought, recession or depression, educational institutes should have a guarantee of survival and autonomy.

    Secondly, when the minister talks about “bring Nobel first and then ask for everything on a platter,” I can not help but laugh out loud, probably Mr. minister has forgotten that the IITs have some of the weaker basic sciences’ departments in the world. IITs are renowned world-wide for creating polished fodder for foreign University’s graduate engineering programmes by filtering in the most tenacious and the most persevering ones. Indian universities are yet to win an ACM-Turing award or a Field’s medal, talking about Nobel in such a manner scares me about the future of these institutes.

    All the best to the guys in the academia, they are in fact doing a splendid job despite all these bottlenecks and we should support them.

    Please do not compare Chetan to Rahul Gandhi. Chetan has lot of substance and has not inherited the legacy. Chetan is accomplished entirely by his own efforts.

    ,HAPPY DEEWALI”
    i know you are busy still waiting for aknowledgement
    AND THANKS,for all books

    Dear Chetan

    I am not an avid reader! 2 States was possibly one of the few books that I have read cover to cover in a span of 2 days. In a way I have developed a relationship with this book and was in a way disappointed that it got over. I have never laughed more on a book as much as this one..!! I am definately your fan for sure and can’t wait to look forward to 3 idiots. By the way, will there be a film made on 2 states??? take care :)

    totally agree with the micro management part- iit profs are smart- they know how things work and just let them do their job

    Way to go. Enjoy your 2 month’s vacation. have peace.
