Chetan Bhagat was the first popular Indian Fiction Writer to try hands at writing Nonfiction. Chetan Bhagat’s “What Young India Wants”, a collection of essays on contemporary Indian issues was a success.

Ashwin Sanghi earned a name for himself by leveraging Indian readers with an opportunity to read Dan Brown type content in relevance to India. Ashwin Sanghi became a master story-teller with his first book itself and later migrated towards Nonfiction genre. Ashwin’s “13 Steps” series is a popular series among the Indian audience. The 13 Steps series includes a book for Adult, Students, and Oldies as well. 13 Steps to Bloody Good Wealth, 13 Steps to Bloody Good Luck and 13 Steps to Bloody Good Marks are the first three books from the series.
Ravinder Singh also tried his hands at Non-Fiction genre, while his non-fiction work was not as profound or helpful as Chetan’s and Ashwin’s but certainly was a good read. “Like It Happened Yesterday” was a memoir, it had positive, emotional and impactful stories from Ravinder’s childhood.
