After thirty years in a modest flat, he and his family are moving to Gurgaon, one of Delhi's richest areas.

Meanwhile their son, Rupak, is failing business school in the US - and secretly dating an American girl. Once installed in their mansion, the Jhas are soon drawn into a feverish game of one-upmanship with their new neighbours, the Chopras, as each couple seeks to outdo the other with increasingly lavish displays of wealth. As an imitation Sistene Chapel is pitted against a crystal-encrusted sofa, Bindu wonders where it will all end.
