ABSTRACT:

It seems significant to note that Chetan Bhagat is an imperishable name in the arena of postmodern fiction along with that a symbol of new India. He has captured his deep concern about the youth today i.e. the problems and despairs, hopes and aspirations of the youth in all his works, he has written six fictions and two nonfictions. He specifically deals with the harsh realities of life and also manages to retain the sense of pure humour in his works. His works have striking similarities with parables in offering moral messages, spiritual guidance and technical suggestions; his works can better be defined as postmodern projection of parables. The present paper is based on those issues that deals with the victories and defeats of the youth, finely observed in Chetan’s stories.
