Chetan Bhagat's Indian English - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Chetan Bhagat's English is not English
But Hinglish,
Hindi plus English,
An DJ's broken Khichdi English,
In the hat, coat and pants
And the gum boots,
Joking and dancing
And going.

Chetan Bhagat's English is pidgin-English,
Bhagatji's English,
A Delhite boy's English,
A convent boy's,
A hosteller's,
A boarder's,
A hotelier's,
A restauranteur's English.

Chetan Bhagat's English jocular English,
Take you Indian chaat
And chat you
With the headphone and the earphone
Plugged into the ears,
You going
And hearing music.

Chetan Bhagat as a waiter,
A hotel boy
Serving you food,
Fast and junk food
And you taking the things
With the spices, tamarind sauce
And chutney.
