She walked into the coffee shop. Although she was with a group of friends I could feel all the eyes in the room boring into her, not to mention the three pairs at our table. 'Who's she?' asked Fatso. that's Fatso for you. I had landed in Delhi today and I was supposed to know who this angel was.
'How am I supposed to know?' I retorted.
'Who's who?' said Jags feigning complete ignorance, although a few moments ago I had thought his eyeballs would pop out.
Welcome to the world of Fatso - a Punjabi Adonis, Jags - a Tamil Communist Brahmin, Bali - a Northeastern Helen of Troy, and me - a plain simple confused Bong.
Set in Delhi, this is the story of three diametrically opposite friends, and a damsel not in distress but the cause of distress for the males of the species.
Just out of college and in their first job, life was perfect... until they were hit by a hurricane. One loses his job, another decides to quit his the rest chip in to help start a business venture together. The trials and tribunals of initiating a business enterprise in urban India finally culminate into an absolutely entertaining finale.
From the summit of hope to the depths of despair, from utter confusion to absolute clarity, from maddeningly mad to rip-roaring funny...this is a story of friendship, aspiration and optimism garnished with the masala of humour, chaos and disagreement! A work of fiction based on facts... a story that will linger on in your hearts, a story that celebrates the magic that is India...
A story of you and me.
