World record award winning fiction novel by Mr. Anand Bhate ‘C + Plus Doctor Thepla’ intends to promote and boost the start-up culture of Bengaluru. Read here the journey!

When the start-up revolution in the country is being embraced enthusiastically by the students right after their college education , two students who completed their education from Bengaluru colleges have decided to jot down their thoughts as a form of a fiction novel to promote the start-up culture and bring some changes.
Bengaluru based author Ms. Sarita Raghuvanshi (alumni of Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering, Bengaluru) and Ahmedabad-based Mr. Anand Bhate (alumni of Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Bengaluru) have penned down their fiction novel in English titled ‘C + Plus Doctor Thepla’.
The launch of the novel took place on September 20, 2016 at Ahmedabad by its Mayor, Mr. Gautam Shah in a high profile event. The author, Mr. Anand Bhate is the Director of Jeevan Anand Builders, a Gujarat-based real estate development company. Armed with an MBA degree from Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Bengaluru, he is a passionate writer and also an occasional blogger.
The story of ‘C + Plus Doctor Thepla’ revolves around Abhishek Patel, an Engineering student at Bengaluru, who wants to become a chef and start-up his 'Thepla' restaurant chain globally. Being a chef is not a career that his father (a doctor) could accept. His neighbor 'Manjoo Mausi' ensures that he becomes atleast an Engineer, if not a Doctor, otherwise, "Log Kya Kahenge!" Abhishek has to go through a lot of family and societal objections while pursuing his dream of a start-up. The novel takes you through the journey of Abhishek's school and college life that every Indian student can relate to. This novel, which promises elements of humor, romance, emotions, tragedy and a bit of motivation, has depicted the struggles of an average Indian student in pursuing a start-up right after college and has cleared the misconceptions regarding the same.
Talking about his college days, Anand said that his alma mater SIBM Bengaluru gave him the ‘never-die attitude’, which was the source of his motivation needed to pen down this novel.
While the Bengaluru based author of this book, Ms. Sarita Raghuvanshi is an MC (Master of Ceremonies) who has anchored in more than 900 National and International large format live and televised events in over 15 countries over the last decade.
