A bold expose of the contemporary Indian political scene that has cast aside morality and ethics and unfailingly betrays public trust for vested interests and private ends.

The novel opens with the death of Bisesar-an unknown village youth-in itself an insignificant event. But with an important by-election around the corner, the feasting begins as opposing political parties like vultures seize upon the unfortunate event to extract political capital out of its, thereby providing sharp insights into the exercise of power and patronage.
