‘I’m sure you can do a much better job than Bhagath!’I admit I didn't have very high hopes for this book, what with it hinting at a certain very popular author right from the blurb. But when I began reading Beaten by Bhagath!, I found myself pleasantly surprised.
When BB hears these inspiring words from his sexy lady boss, his staid life as a successful analyst in an MNC goes into a tailspin.
Bitten by the ego bug and smitten by her, BB sets off on his quest to write a book that’s better than India’s greatest writer Dr.Bhagath’s blockbusters. Nothing unusual about this for BB, who likes a good fight. Except that he and Bhagath had been classmates and friends at college.
What follows is a roller-coaster voyage of the debutant author and his book, with all its twists and cul-de-sacs. Brushes with publishers, celebrities, retailers, book chains, and competition with the alliances among giants, mark the challenger’s journey, upping the stakes at every stage.
Will BB catch up with his famous friend?
What will their encounter be like?
Written from inside the ring, ‘Beaten by Bhagath’ is a gripping tale ...the first-ever about the unseen side of the wonderland of Indian fiction.
Beaten by Bhagath! is the story of an aspiring writing who's written his first book after some prodding and with the incentive to beat his ex classmate and friend, Dr. Bhagath, who is now known as 'India's Greatest Writer'. But the actual struggle is yet to begin, as he finds out when he starts looking for a publisher for his book.
