A political novel which reflects the Indian reality.
A sharp observation, an unflinching candor, an intelligent wit, combined with easy flowing prose, lend the story a unique charm that only a well written period novel can evince. - The Book Review
Narrated with humor and a gentle irony, this novel strikes an entirely different theme from Arun Joshi's earlier novels. - The Telegraph
His prose is at once as felicitous as it is flawless. - Khushwant Singh
Written with Joshi's characteristic lucidity and confidence, the most interesting part of the book is its tone - all this is illusion, a recurring chain of cause and effect. - Makarand Paranjape, Sunday Times
