The first time I heard about Mr. Chetan Bhagat and his “The 3 Mistakes of My Life” is exactly 3 years ago. I was going through corporate training. On the second day of the training, the training manager came for a Question & Answer session. She told me how much she loves reading and why we should keep reading. She told about one of her favorite writers, Mr. Chetan Bhagat.
