Struck by a fatal illness, Dildo Iyengar, a Western-educated Brahmin, gives it all up and embarks on a journey across India in search of his roots, and enlightenment - preferably through union with the ultimate feminine energy.
As he wanders footloose from Kinnaur in the high Himalayas to Tirupathi in the South, a host of eccentric characters come gloriously alive; erotic travelling companions, antique-smuggling dons, stoned sadhu babas, tribal headmen, aging hippies, and an ageless, omniscient ghost.
Alive with wit and iconoclastic insight, LITTLE KINGDOMS is a pleasantly self-deprecating account of a modern man's search for himself and his God in an ancient land.
