Very soon, Chetan Bhagat will be joined by another IIMA alumnus to publish a novel. Rajesh Singh, a PGP-PMP candidate at IIMA, will be joining him in that respect. Diamond Publishers will soon publish Rajesh’s novel, titled ‘That Hardly Happens to Someone!’.
Rajesh has worked in the Air Force for 4 years and with the State Bank of India for 8 years. The novel is partly autobiographical and Rajesh wrote it when he was in Texas for two months on international attachment. The toughest part, he says, was fleshing out the dialogue since most of the events were embedded in his memory.
The story revolves around a boy who grows up in a small village and moves to a big city. It describes the various ups and downs in his career, love and life and brings out the various cultural and social setups.
Here is looking forward to the publication of the novel and enthusiastic response from world over.
