This is the story of an achiever who, right from the time he trudges to school carrying a heavy bag, asks several questions about the world and his role in it. He makes it to a prestigious engineering institute in Gujarat and then to Ireland and France for higher studies. He falls in love first with an Indian girl and then with a foreigner. As he struggles with the restrictions of culture, he wonders why an individual's happiness has to be submerged to uphold tradition. In all this, he holds a mirror to Indian society, wondering how a country can progress in this age of globalisation if it clings so strongly to age-old mores. These questions will find resonance in readers' own lives, making this much more than the gripping story of one young man's coming of age in the new millennium. Printed Pages: 176.
