About the Book :
Eight-year-old Kartikeya Kukreja solemnly swears to become an IAS officer after accompanying an illegal poaching expedition to obtain a partridge and blackbuck for his fathers bosss supper.
Kartikeya eventually discovers the secret of his fathers fawning subordinates as they attempt to scramble their way up the civil service pyramid, and himself experiences a similar hilarious predicament.
A refreshingly original rendition of the slippery life in the Indian bureaucracy, Pyramid of Virgin Dreams, replete with comic imagery, portrays, with humour and intelligence, an India that is both farcical and full of hope.
