Chetan Bhagat Advising the students

“Can the guy who scores good marks but cannot communicate get a job?” the ‘Five Point Someone’ writer asked. Advising the students that they should know how to market themselves, he said, “Americans are good at marketing, they are the best at marketing.”

Students must have read in history books that Vasco Da Gama came to India in 1498, Bhagat said. “Questions came in examinations, we answered and got marks. But then what? It was never taught in schools how Vasco Da Gama established links with the local people in that age of zero network connectivity,” he said.

Bhagat told the audience, “If you really want to be successful, don’t think life is without struggle.” Bhagat, who has also penned scripts for several Bollywood films, said, “Just think about Salman Khan who does two-hour workout daily to look and stay fit. Considering that he can take it easy after attaining so much success and fame, it is inspiring to see how he struggles and works hard.”
