Summary
"A sweeper discovers a cache of black money and escapes to see the Taj Mahal with his underage mistress; an untouchable races to reclaim his life stolen by an upper-caste identity thief; slum baby's head gets bigger and bigger as he gets smarter and smarter, while his family tries to find a cure. One of India's most original and audacious writers, Uday Prakash, weaves three stinging and comic tales of living and surviving in today's globalized India. In his stories, Prakash portrays realities about caste and class with an authenticity rarely seen in English-language fiction about South Asia. Told in compelling, vivid and thoroughly modern voice, sharply political but free of heavy handedness, these stories leave an imprint on the mind and heart long after the final page is turned"--
