Bestselling author Chetan Bhagat’s next book is due October.

Set in contemporary India, the protagonists go through several difficulties to achieve this in an unfair society that mostly rewards the corrupt. Protagonist Gopal gives in to the corrupt system, while Raghav fights it.

Yeah, what a coincidence.

I can’t think of any example.
