Chetan Bhagat’s latest Book ONE INDIAN GIRL, is breaking all the records in Amazon India pre-order history. The book titled with the highest number of pre-orders has got some amazing statistics for the website that it has never witnessed before.
The book has been launched under the exclusive online partnership of Amazon and Rupa publishers.
The book was launched online at Amazon at 2 p.m. on Friday and within 2 hours of its release it got highest number of Pre-orders that Amazon did not witness in its working since its launch in 2013. Well that is quite interesting to see, how a book has broke three year records of an online shopping website.
The very famous Indian author, Chetan Bhagat who is an IIT and IIM graduate has turned down his banking career and took to writing. He made his debut with the Book, “five Point Someone” which is also made into a movie, “3 Idiots”.
Bhagat took to twitter on Friday noon and revealed the Title and the theme of the Book.
ONE INDIAN GIRL revolves around the idea of a, “Indian girl who is intelligent and successful, because of which she finds it difficult to get love.”
Bhagat who is the pioneer of campus novels in India has this time come up with something different. He wants to question the society for its prejudice and biasness against Women, that why every time they are forced to make ridiculous choices that more is based on the decisions of the society rather their own.
Chetan wrote on his blog, “It (book) hopes to question society, which judges women achievers. It asks why when it comes to love, being intelligent and too successful is almost a drawback for women,” “I felt it would be interesting to get in their head. I wrote on feminism because it isn’t an equal world for women, and most don’t realise it. As a writer, I want to highlight issues in society that affect a lot of people. Feminism affects us all.”
The teaser of the book released on you tube says, “Hi, I’m Radhika Mehta and I’m getting married this week. I work in a top investment bank. Thank you for reading my crazy story. However, let me warn you. You may not like me too much. One, I make a lot of money. Two, I have an opinion on everything. Three, I have had sex before. Now, if I were a guy, you’d be cool with all this. Since I am a girl, these things don’t really make me too likeable, do they?
The statistics are making clear that how great a success the book is going to be. The pre-orders for the book has already surpassed the biggest hit of the year, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ within 30 minutes of its release. The book has got 20 times more hits for order than Harry potter. Isn’t this just incredible….!!
Bhagat has referred himself to a male feminist and accepted that he wrote the book in complete relation to Indian woman and the book will unfold the mysteries of Indian women.
The author accepted that writing on this controversial issue has been a huge challenge and only after decades of experience in this realm he could take this bold step.
He has previously authored seven books out of which ‘Five Point Someone’, ‘One Night @ the Call Center’, ‘The 3 Mistakes of My Life’ and ‘2 States: The Story of My Marriage’ have already been adopted as Bollywood movies and his Last Book ‘Half-Girlfriend’ is also being turned into a Bollywood movie starring Arjun kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
Well we hope same success for this Book too which will unfold some real sensitive topics of the society and also tantalize a hell lot of Drama and debate for people.
