All that Patros Patranobis wants is to be left alone ? to live his ordinary, unremarkable life with Rose, the woman he has not married, and Tippy, the son he has not fathered. But one day, he receives a mysterious, metal-bound book, a bequest from a long-dead ancestor. In its pages, he is told, are answers to all the problems of world. There?s only one hitch: The Book of Answers is locked. Its key is hidden somewhere in the distant southern state of Kerala. But Patros doesn't really want to make the world a better place. Eager to be rid of the burdensome book, he sells it to a junk shop. And that is when the madness begins. Within months, The Book of Answers reappears in the hands of a godman claiming that through it, God speaks to him. The godman is soon advising the most powerful politician in the land, the ruthless Ishwar Prasad. Citing The Book of Answers as the divine source, Ishwar Prasad unleashes a slew of Orwellian laws. Pushed by his friends and Rose, Patros tries to undo the harm he has unleashed by his sale of the book, but only gets embroiled deeper in intrigue and politics. In the process, he becomes a reluctant hero to an embattled and confused nation. Finally, he is left with no option but to make the journey to Kerala in search of the key. But nothing could have prepared him for what he finds there.
