My first name - Paramendra - is extremely rare, so rare I don't think anyone else has it. My parents saw Google coming. My last name - Bhagat - is also very rare. But then you have a Chetan Bhagat listed in the 2010 Time 100 list, I realized earlier today. Who is Chetan Bhagat?
Chetan Bhagat A former investment banker, Chetan, 36, broke out as a writer with his novels One Night @ the Call Center and Five Point Someone, which inspired the film 3 Idiots, the biggest Indian hit in history. His latest book is about his marriage and the obstacles he and his wife faced coming from different regions of India..... He often writes about following your dreams and not bowing to others' expectations. That isn't easy in India, where family opinion matters and some professions are regarded as more serious than others.
