      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Avoidable.... with a capital A!

    i bought this book after reading the reviews on flipkart.. hence my expectations were sky high.

    After reading the painfully etched protagonist's story, i felt so cheated about my time wasted.

    The story is good.. but stretched like a used rubber band... the book jacket claims that it will tell u "what not to to do in a entrepreneurial start up".. after reading, u will realise u dont have to read such books to set a insight..

    Also, the business model is not that viable to begin with..

    A brilliant read.

    Because shit happened – the fourth book of the bestselling author of 3 romantic novels came as a great surprise to me. The author has completely drifted from his regular genre of writing romantic, humorous books. This book is based on his real life and gives an insight into the big entrepreneurial world full of challenges. It portrays the author’s passion to pursue his dreams as he could have easily took up a job but he instead chose to start his own company. The book describes the roller co...

    Insightful. Intense. Inspiring.

    I have been silently following Harsh Snehanshu for the past few years. I liked his first three books for his exquisite sense of humour. This book completely took me by surprise. It was a serious one, and I was a bit apprehensive to witness how Harsh tackles it. I thought a writer with a funny bone would make it too bland and boring. But I was so damn wrong. I was hooked from the first page to the last, until I could finish the entire book in one sitting - 6 hours at a stretch.

    It's different

    'What not to do in a start up...'
    Many books have been written which tell the success stories of their writers but this one is a story of failure. With this book, Harsh Snehanshu comes out of the league of writers selling their books on the road side.
    I'll justify, why I rated this book 4 on 5:
    Star 1: For the unique theme and the unique style of writing. It's humerous and serious at the same time.
    Star 2: For the continuity maintained throughout. Every step, which a start up takes, is explai...

    Worth reading

    well you know the things which you like and things which you would not like, both you can see in this book. But i i don't know whether its based on real story or its just a fiction, But i truly appreciate the author for making us passing time by this book. One thing that i really like to mention here is the lead character in this book is the author or the author named himself as the lead character. Because of this thing i feel the story is fictitious.

    A definite page-turner

    "Because shit happened" - As I was wandering around the Mumbai airport earlier this month, waiting impatiently for my delayed flight, I somehow managed to bump into this title. Why I picked it up - maybe it was the ever- budding entrepreneur in me, or just the avid book shop surfer, or was just another pseudo-satisfied and over worked consulting professional looking for a little bit of humour. But whichever alter-ego it might have been, I just knew that I had to read through it.

    Worth every penny, and actually much more - must read for any "Student Entrepreneur" and actually everyone else :)

    This is my first book by Harsh, and I must say that he nailed it. I got it on my birthday, and I couldn't put the book until I had finished it which was by 7 am in the morning or so.

    The book is more than just an accurate description of the kind of things that happen in an Entrepreneur's life when he is in college, yet to know how professional World work, and thus unknowingly is caught in the web of personal vs. professional connections. Despite the seriousness, and loads of messages the boo...

    Touching and inspiring

    This book describes the story of a young and passionate entrepreneur, who despite all odds wanted to chase his passion but is betrayed by the people he trusts. But he has the guts to go back to the same path. The climax with the parents was too good to describe.

    Practical story line

    The book is one time nice read, it mainly talks about how the world is full of selfish ppl with their selfish reason. it sounds that ppr are generally associated with you for some of their own reason, from entrepreneur point i wld say better opt for some other good back.Its just a ficiton :)

    amazing read

    simply marvelous. it kept me engrossed the entire day right from the start till the end.
    Being an start up entrepreneur myself i have a lot of lessons that i will carry from this book. I always had a impression of iit guys being privileged be it start of endeavors or big fat packages. This book made me realise and break notions that i carried with me all along.
    The use of words and the language of the book is very lucid and i feel the author himself is sharing his story in front of me.
