    Abstract :
    Chetan Bhagat, India’s most admired writer. The New York Times called Chetan Bhagat, ‘the biggest selling English language novelist India’s history ‘. His third novel The 3 Mistakes Of My Life, deals about the male-aspirations and male-bonding of Govind Patel, Ishaan, Omi and Ali, a twelve year old boy. The whole novel is a glorification of Young men by a male writer. What about Women in this novel? Did Chetan Bhagat think women do not have any aspirations like men? Vidya, an eighteen year old female lead, is presented as a love object throughout the novel. Bhagat gave immense physical description of the female character in sensual strain. Whenever she appears on the scene the readers are allowed to visualize her physical image by the vivid descriptions of the author. Love and Romance is well packed in the fiction to entertain the readers rather than educating them. The present research article aims at the aspects of male chauvinism and objectification of women by the male author.
