Yes sir, yes sir, 3 bags full.
One for my master and one for the dame,
and one for the little boy who cries down the lane.
Bah Bah Black Sheep, Can't you stick to the script?
Sorry sir, sorry sir, what do you mean by "script"?
I ask you if you have some wool, stick to a yes or no
Answer what you're asked, not what you wish to do
Bah Bah Black sheep, you get that, don't you?
No sir, No sir, I don't think I quite do..
Was being proactive, giving you more than you ask,
Isn't being nice part of the task??
Bah Bah Black Sheep, how naive are your ways
Nice doesn't count for shit these days..
Stick to your task, utter not a peep,
Else, you'll never be The Man, just a Black Sheep...

Depending on how you look at it, Chetan Bhagat’s life closely resembles mine.
· Engineering college (check, check)
· Elite institution (check, check)
· married someone from the south of India (check, check)
· worked in an IT-ES-BPO type organization (check, check).
In my opinion, Chetan Bhagat is an ordinary author.
There, I said it..
He has been writing books using himself as a muse, and now that he is an author, I assume his next book is going to be about someone who wants to change his profession from an office to writing a book. That, will also be the end of what he writes, since very soon, he is going to pretty much run out of things to write about.
I think he is an ordinary author, who based on writing nice essays in English class in high school, decided that his lifetime dream was to write a book. He is good at small pieces.. Books are really not his thing..
I think Anand Mahadevan is better.
There’s a part of me though, that wishes I was in Chetan Bhagat’s shoes..
