About the Book

Mumbai’s historic mill hub of Lalbaug finally gets its own mythology in this sensitive coming-of-age story. Rucha Chitrodia’s long-time finger on the city’s pulse underpins this book.’ - Bachi Karkaria | Editor, Columnist, Author


A delightfully wry tale of love, loss and finding oneself, this book is as much a tender ode to Mumbai as it is to the trajectory of human relationships.’ Kiran Manral | Bestselling Author, Columnist


When a young Mynah moves to Mumbai to join an ad agency, much against the wishes of her paranoid father, she is reluctantly catapulted into adulthood. A ghosting boyfriend, struggles at her workplace, a meeting with her runaway birth mother... She gets acquainted with life's truths as a paying guest in the beautiful and lonely Aruna's flat in the city's old mill district, which has its own story to tell.


This brilliant debut novel by Rucha Chitrodia takes a look at modern, formless equations and almost-romances. If it's about heartbreak, it's also about healing, about the exciting continuum of human ups and downs.
