Half Girlfriend Book Review
Half Girlfriend novel set in rural Bihar, New Delhi, Patna, and New York, is the story of a Bihari Boy in quest of winning over the girl he loves. This is Bhagat’s sixth novel which was released on 1 October 2014 by Rupa Publications. The novel has also been published in Hindi and Gujarati versions as well. A Bollywood film adaptation is planned.
Dedicated to “non English-types”, the book divulges the sentiments and linguistic struggles of a backward rural Bhojpuri-laced Hindi speaking boy from Bihar as he enrolls himself at the prestigious English-medium St. Stephen’s College, New Delhi, and falls in love with a “high class English speaking rich Delhi girl”. The girl does not admit the relationship but agrees to be his “half girlfriend”. Chetan Bhagat commented, “Half-Girlfriend, to me, is a unique Indian phenomenon, where boys and girls are not clear about their relationship status with each other. A boy may think he is more than friends with the girl, but the girl is still not his girlfriend. Hence, I thought we needed a term like ‘Half girlfriend’. Because, in India, that is what most men get.
