So this book describes the journey of a young Indian from an interior part of India to the much developed India. This book describes thoughts like- "How does the life of a young man change when he leaves his home town and moves to a city? How does he feel after being cheated by his own countrymen or when his own people treat him as an outsider because he speaks a different language? -How disappointing is it for him, when he notices that people of his country are trying to create the illusion that India is shining; even though the reality is something else? -How does he feel when he sees a child working at a tea stall, a garage or a hotel instead of going to school? -How much does it hurt him when he comes across people of other countries who believe that "Indians are thieves"? How does he try to show them the real side of most of the Indians?" This book also describes how things like religion, politics, relationships, traditions, love, marriage, failure, hope, dreams affect a young man's life.
