Set in the late 90's and the millennium year, Dancing with Maharaja is about how Satish - the only son of Rajaraman, a rich liquor - shop owner in Madurai and rated "beyond repair" by all his school and college teachers - much against his will finds himself in the streets of Old Rajinder Nagar teeming with tea shops, moms on rent, book stalls and IAS coaching institutes; and what is in store for him in the demanding and eventful journey of IAS exams. Woven around the rigorous IAS exams schedule of prelims-mains-interview, the story captures the lift style of the civil service aspirants and explores the myriad hues and shades of all that go into making the steel frame of the country.
