About the book:

Akriti ‘Akku’ Patel and Sanjay ‘Sanju’ Saran become friends in kindergarten, lovers in college, and then

hit the real world. With bureaucrats for parents, Sanju’s world is one of power, privilege and entitlement.

Akku, on the other hand, is brought up by a single mother – a distinguished surgeon widowed very young – and an aunt who is a smart and sassy books editor with commitment problems.

Sanju’s mind is in turmoil as he chooses to abandon his dreams and, like his parents, looks to the Civil Services for what he thinks will be a meaningful career. Meanwhile, Akku, armed with a BTech from IIT, is jetting off to California, land of systems design and fun-loving computer geniuses.

Can their love survive these growing differences? Or will the compulsions of Lutyens’ Delhi stand in the way of their togetherness?
