Twelve-year-old Hari tries to make sense of his tumultuous and complex world in 1980s India. His experiment at eating fish leads to the accidental death of his grandmother- his preference for Hindi over his mother toungue Tamil leads to slanderous graffiti against his family in Madras- and his friendship with the family maid lands him in trouble with a militant Tamil film fan and political functonary called Vishu.

Matters come to a head when MGR, a film star turned politician dies and his supporters led by Vishu declare a railway strike, trapping Hari and his mother in a train bound for Madras...Anand Mahadevan engages all the readers senses with writing that is visid and exotic, very often erotic, and touched throughout with gentle humour. - Gail Anderson-Dargatz
