ABOUT THE BOOK
Life is rosy at twenty-five, with love in the air and red-hot ambition flowing through the veins.
Or is it?
Ask twenty-five-year-old Enakshi Chatterji, who is uprooted from Delhi and sent to Chennai to work as an intern in the fiercely competitive and heavily male-dominated territory of sales with no place for a city-bred sophisticated girl.
Add to that the fact that she doesn’t speak a word of Tamil, and you get a heady cocktail of events that promises to take you on a rollercoaster ride.
When a twenty-five-year-old family secret comes back to haunt her, she starts on a course of selfdestruction with a weekend getaway with her stalker, a movie date with her boss and a quest to uncover an old family secret.
Will Enakshi be able to battle all the sexual advances, language barriers, male chauvinism, hygiene complications and the scorching Chennai sun, and emerge victorious? Will she finally unearth the truth about her mother?
Find out in this thrilling, fast-paced and tumultuous journey how Enakshi learns the hard truths about relationships, life and work while trying to prove herself.
