Beaten By Bhagath! - Pleasant Read.

Often we wish we could take on the world with our passion and not with our 9-5 job. Many of us do follow the dream to make it a reality. Success, though, comes to not many.

A writer's pain

I think 'Beaten By Bhagath!' is a book which can scare off a lot of aspiring authors. What's interesting is- we get to see how a man is punched,pummeled,pushed till his back hits the wall and cannot help but admire the authors who actually 'make it' in the Indian publishing jungle. An author puts his sweat and blood into a book, nurtures it with love and care, watches with affectionate eyes as his baby grows up. Only to have it all dashed by an insensitive and callous publishing machinery which leaves a writer seething with fury and indignation.
The author of this book often compares the wor

And lately, how he has to face all the rejections, fraud and complexities in life. I, being in this industry for some 2 years, found the book quite realistic. I would say hats off to the writer for attempting something that's risky. And I also liked the little humour thats imbibed in the book. Good work. Though little bit of turn off moments are also there but in all, I would give this book 3.75/5

Recommended!

Beaten by Bhagath is an entertaining page-turner, one can easily complete it in one sitting.
It is a quick, pleasant read for all the aspiring.new authors who are on their to get published. Its about dream, hopes and struggle of a writer.
BBB gives account of all the dirt of Indian Publishing industry. Its a book about life of a book.
The book reveals quite a lot about ups and downs of an aspiring author.
The author tried to add few humorous elements to the anecdote and i think he succeeded fairly.
Beaten by Bhagath is worth a read.

A Page-Turner

How does a failed debut – whether a first movie or a first album or a first book feel? Believe me, it is as traumatic a feeling as when your first –born is consigned to the incubator and brought out only to be taken to a final resting place.

Beaten by Bhagath is a very honest book which one rarely comes across. This book is not written just for grabbing eyeballs and that is what makes it a very unique and different book. It’s a gripping read with some mind boggling facts about the publishing industry. In other words, it’s simply a pageturner.

Nice for light reading

Nice book that i would recommend to budding writers out there. The author has smartly weaved a tale of struggling author with good doses of humour in his story. There are certain slangs used by the author that i feel could have been avoided. The end seems a little dragged. Can be read once!

Beaten by Bhagath!: A Tale of Two Writers- Review

Sometimes, we all tend to get onto a path which we have never trodden upon. Call it the Road Not Taken if you will. This path is not necessarily something we want, but is a figment of our imagination, influenced by millions of external factors; befuddling us and making us take it up. It may or may not lead us to success, but definitely leads to one thing: getting hurt. Welcome to the world of BB, a debutant author, out on a journey to make his book a best-seller.

This 191 paged novel is Divvaakar’s second novel. It’s a story dealing with the insipid world of publishing and book writing, as a
