About the Book :
It all begins with the bumpy Jonga ride in the woods—his childhood illegal poaching expedition under the patronage of a band of idle cops, to bring in a full partridge and half-a-black-buck to conjure up the dinner for his father’s boss. That day, eight-year-old Kartikeya Kukreja solemnly swears that one day he too would be revered as ‘IAS’.
Kartikeya eventually discovers the secret how his father’s fawning subordinates wriggle their way up the pyramid. When it is his own turn, Kartikeya experiences a similar hilarious predicament. Idiotically, he sees time rush by through a lifetime spent in inanities, and all but feels like the redundant antique table that moves out with him on his every transfer!
All this while, the web of Revati’s elusive dreams tantalises him, as his wife and children pull him back to the real world. Will he juggle the two well, or lose himself in it forever? Pyramid of Virgin Dreams is a refreshingly original rendition of the slippery life in the bureaucracy. The book is spunky and replete with comical imageries drawn from a farcical, albeit hopeful India.
