Dear Chetan Bhagat,

I have been engaged and reading your novels for a long time now and I am probably getting to know your writing style and stylistic features of your novels and I don’t think that all the criticism made on you about your language are significant.

Frankly speaking, I didn’t like reading before. I had hardly read some novels. But then my teacher insisted me to start reading as reading boosts brain power and improves the functioning of the brain. I asked her from what I should start on which she answered that reading Chetan Bhagat’s novels would be a nice start for me. Chetan Bhagat! I immediately asked my teacher isn’t he the one who is mocked for his English then my teacher replied that I should read his novel first and then decide whether the public claims are correct or not.

I started reading your novel “2 States-The story of my marriage” and then read “three mistakes of my life”. I discovered that the English language used by you in the novels is simple and you have spot lit your deep concerns about the youngsters today, for instance, what are the issues, desires and hope, ambitions of the teen, love marriage, modernistic culture, and women liberation. The dialect used by you is straightforward, normal and far-reaching. This is the reason why school goers enjoy reading your books. And this is the reason you sell millions of copies yearly.

But according to me, you are a skilled author in taking care of the themes and the significant issues that are related to the young and their issues significantly. In the novel “2 States-The story of my marriage”, you managed to deal with obsessive human relationships and how two lovers who are from two distinct states, society, conventions and traditions have tried to transfer their fantasy into reality. I feel that as a writer you are knowledgeable in taking care of the subjects of the youth particularly their issues and their problems that should be addressed in the present society. That is the reason why many Bollywood movies are made based on the story from your novels. You write your books and texts in simple English does not mean that your actual vocabulary is poor so people should not be criticizing you for your simple English as using simple English is a conscious decision you have made to reach your audience. People say and even I have noticed in your novels that you make grammatical mistakes but when you are writing a 400-page book it’s not possible to take care of all grammatical errors. I have even read and heard people saying that your writing style is wrong. How can any writing style be wrong? A writer’s writing choice is his own discretion, I have never thought it is wrong or right over here. If they don’t like your writing style, they are not your audience. Your language connects well with the people and appeals to them and therefore engages the reader. You have been labeled as the Biggest selling English Language Novelist in India’s history tittle by the New York Times.

According to me your books are a great degree well known, particularly among adolescents, reason the way you approach the reader through your style of portrayal and character definitions. Your stories and style of portrayal mirror the life of today’s youth, and this is the reason why adolescents are a fan of your books as they see themselves reflected in your books. You have converted millions of non-readers into readers. A common Indian who is not much knowledgeable and fluent in English can read your books as they cannot understand the standard of English used by the famous writers so your books are much easy and understandable for them. Your written work styles have constantly catered to reality and introduced a genuine picture of India. Everybody can associate himself/herself with him the way he conveyed what needs be which is seen effortlessly. Everybody can associate himself/herself with you the way you conveyed hat needs be which is seen effortlessly. You extremely introduce your thoughts in an exceptionally basic way which is comprehended by the reader instantly, this is the reason why the youth catches your written work style and you have a colossal fan following. All the aspects of your writing style, ideas and language are clearly evident in your novels, and these aspects are the reason why you have become a successful writer. You have been in the list of Times magazine’s list of World’s 100 most influential people in 2010 for a reason. Now I am sure that the criticism done is not appropriate for you as the people who make such claims about your language and ideas are not particularly your audience and they do not understand the intention of using simple language.
