The life in a city is far from easy for Amit and Jaya. The couple and their little boy Rohan bump into one trouble after another, while labouring through the modern Indian urban grind. From the distress while trying to buy an apartment, to the miseries that accompany the furniture purchased from the local mall, they seem to court calamity in almost everything they do. For instance, when Amit had a fender bender, or Jaya invited her college friend for dinner―who would have thought the things would turn out the way they did? The book threads fifteen such beads of funny stories to form a garland that can easily show some shades of similarities with the experiences of many who happen to live in an Indian metropolis―however, resemblance to any actual characters or incidents is entirely coincidental.
