Chetan Bhagat created quite a stir on Twitter this morning by commenting on the state of the Indian economy. The made-for-the-masses author and columnist tweeted saying, "The Rupee is asking, is there no punishments for my rapists?".
At a time when there is a steady rise in crimes against women, Bhagat's careless use of the word 'rape' seems to have drawn the ire of the Twitterati.
Under fire, Bhagat eventually deleted his tweet.
