Summary
"Mumbai has emptied under the threat of imminent nuclear annihilation; gangs of marauding Hindu and Muslim thugs rove the desolate streets; yet Sarita can think of only one thing: buying the last pomegranate that remains in perhaps the entire city. She is convinced that the fruit holds the key to reuniting her with her physicist husband, Karun, who has been mysteriously missing for more than a fortnight."--Provided by publisher
Summary
Resolving to reunite with her missing physicist husband as Mumbai is evacuated in the wake of a nuclear threat, statistician Sarita journeys through the surreal landscape of a dangerous near-abandoned city in the company of a prolific companion and meets an incarnation of the patron goddess Devi Ma
