Set in the small town of Mahatmanagar in Gujarat, Nanda's story moves through the red brick walls of the design school, ABCD, and its stiff rules and twisted vision; the gossipy corridors of Lakeview Apartments; a make-believe home with Raghu the model-maker; and the search for a perfect house beyond his models and her own moorings.
Nanda is a young Indo-American in quest of her Indian roots. The diary of an unsung student leader of the 1974 Navnirman Movement, NGOs and the 'game' of development. A bit of Nanda, loving and losing.
