Flipkart selling Chetan Bhagat book at ₹ 50; people searching for coupon codes to get even more discount

If you’ve made your mind up about it, then Chetan Bhagat’s One Indian Girl is an easy book to trash. The latest from Bhagat is not selling like hot cakes like his previous ones. Only thing which has happened with his new book is that people have found new jokes on twitter to trash the book.

The book arrives at an interesting time, because of the larger topical debate about gender equality in general, and because it comes closely after that pop-culture phenomenon called Pink. Yes, the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Pink had a far stronger understanding of gender politics than One Indian Girl does.

Flipkart, recently on its big billion sale is selling the book at ₹ 50, but mush to the embarrassment to Chetan Bhagat, people are trying to find out coupon codes to get it at even lesser price. We recently interviewed few college going youth and came to know that the average price people want to pay for the book is Rs 20 at max. Chetan is disappointed by such resonse and has vowed to come back harder with his new book just like Anurag Kashyap came up with Raman Raghav after Bombay Velvet.

More power to Chetan, and even more power to the trolls.

BJP MPs ask for internet package allowance to continuously tweet for PM Modi

Modi’s clout in the BJP is undoubted, his leadership has brought BJP to the forefront after a long gap of ten years. Ministers are leaving no stone unturned in communicating the achievements of the government on every platform possible. Every minster is seen tweeting or posting blogs about PM Modi. Sometimes it is also seen that the ministers tweet first and then PM Modi speaks on that issue.

Cabinet ministers like Ravi Shankar Prasad, Prakash Javdekar and Piyush Goyal are always the first ones to ride on the bandwagon. They have been exhausting their internet packages very soon, sometimes even in a single day and this has increased their expenses on the internet bills. According to them, they should be paid special allowances to cover for their net expenses so that they can talk about the PM at any given point of time.

Congress MPs have objected the demand as that would put extra burden on the taxpayer and would increase the government budget.
