Though this opportunity to write a brief review about chetan's What young India want, is happening, while i am 70 percent through with the book, on kindle.
Chetan had brought in the complete thought process, and modalities, to revive lycherous system of this country, and ensure paving for young India, which is in majority today....But this thought process does exists, among young India, with out any workable solution. Anna is screaming with his team, Khairnar also wanted in the same way, just to name a few. How to make it happen...since i did not read the book completely, may bear a solution in later part. How an young man after schooling can decide, that he wanted to be a leader, by virtue of his education, instead of doctor or ias or engineer. To be a leader, at college level, one need to be a student union leader. I am really not aware about academic level of students union leaders, in IIT and IIM, but at every college, across the country, most of them are last benchers. Ultimately, they rope in town based politicians cadre, by sacrificing their once in a life time opportunity of getting higher studies...It is good to dream, but India need some one to act, execute and reform. My misfortune, I also can not be one, since need to look after my job, spouse, daughter and other important things, than India...
Keep reading and good luck...

Though we read this book with young Indian viewpoint in mind, actually the loopholes, as penned down by Chetan Bhagat, is confronted by India at large...the young and old...We all as a nation want to see India coming out strong as a nation in all fields and shine amongst all nations...Chetan Bhagat beautifully narrated the ways and means to reach the goal and how to go about in solving the grave problems that India faces today....His effort in this book is highly commendable...

The great thing about Chetan Bhagat is that he points out the problems faced by our nation and gives their practical solutions. Having been out of the country for a while, he definitely has a broader outlook about life than most of us. In this book, he has covered vast topics ranging from economics to politics. He has also stressed upon the Indian education system- which needs a major revamp... He style of writing and sense of humour is very engaging.

What I got from this interesting little book is that- the author wants young India to be the change that they want to see rather than merely sitting and hoping for change to take place. It is impertinent that the youth actively engages in the issues involving the nation if they want the nation to grow and develop.

It gave me a lot of insight into India. I am usually very negative about this country but realised that it takes every single individual to get together to make a change

The book made sense when it was written. Political commentary soon gets outdated. Chetan Bhagat needs to update this book.

Not a lot of organization or coherence throughout the book. It seemed like the author had written several different pieces, with some overlap between the different parts, and then combined them all into one book. There were some good ideas, but not well put together in my opinion.
