Chetan Bhagat was recently at ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) for the ongoing celebrations for World Space Week, and Twitterati is having a field day at his cost. On Monday, Bhagat tweeted saying that he was honoured to be at ISRO as the chief guest at the event and couldn't believe that he had been chosen to address them.
Bhagat captioned the tweet, "Really honoured to be the Chief Guest at ISRO for the recent celebrations of the World Space Week. I can’t believe one of India’s finest organisations chose me to address them. Truly a big moment of my life - my own moon landing!"
Turns out, neither could his followers. Chetan Bhagat, who really has no background in aerospace engineering, getting an invitation to be the chief guest of honour at ISRO, one of the country's finest organisations, was a bit too much for some to digest.

While some felt that Bhagat did not belong there, some commented that ISRO could have simply invited someone more worthy of being a guest of honour.

We can't believe it either, Chetan.— Swetha🌻 (@rantassaurus) November 5, 2019
Neither can I believe it !!! What a comedown, isn’t it ?— Sheshagiri Anegondi (@RunningTechie) November 4, 2019
Dont know about your feeling honoured. ISRO surely has dishonoured itself by calling you.— Syed Usman (@Sydusm) November 5, 2019
Surely, an organisation that reaches for the stars can get a real star. This is like #AIIMS inviting a homeopath to address its annual conference— JayEnAar (@GorwayGlobal) November 5, 2019
"I can't believe one of India's finest organisations chose me to address them." Truer words have never been spoken.— Parag bhandari (@Paragbhandari1) November 5, 2019
With losing all communication with Chandrayan-2 Lander Vikram, looks like ISRO has also lost its senses inviting this joker as a Chief Guest. Even he can’t believe it!— Sangita (@Sanginamby) November 5, 2019
