Summary of the Book
The novel is set in the backdrop of Bangalore and traces the journey of the young Siddhant Roy. It isn’t easy for Siddhant as he tries to adjust to a new world of love, lust and addictions. Still, he is managing with the help of two people: Saahil, the philosopher who is always high on some substance, and Ashish, a balanced advisor. He has difficulty in choosing between ambition and desires. Like this is not enough, he is taken completely off track because of his love for Nikita that makes him experiment with various social norms. As time goes, he realizes that his world is slowly crumbling and reaching an all-time low.
