In this tongue-in-cheek, satirical novella, the author relates the tale of a young accountant in Delhi, trying to find his way through the labyrinth of work-politics, the stress of maintaining his manhood in metrosexual times and grappling with his crush on a rival associate. Kirti sees himself as a twenty-six-year-old dude, fair-skinned and slender. An associate in a Delhi accounting firm, he's confident of his matrimonial prospects (Every day, Mummy's email inbox is full of proposals for me from matrimonial websites) and his ability to handle corporate games. What complicates his battles with suited-and-booted forces, is Mandira, his pretty co-worker. Especially when she pays constant attention to a tall German exchange-associate. But Kirti does not give up. Not when he finds out that Mandira's profile is advertised on a matrimonial website. Not when his plans to get noticed in the all-important office Holi party threaten to go awry. Will his strategies at office-parties, in cubicles and even beauty salons ensure smooth victory or irreversible humiliation?
