This is the tantalizing offer made by Vinay Mohan Acharya, one of India's richest men, to Sapna Sinha, a simple salesgirl in an electronics store in downtown Delhi. She can be the next CEO of his incredibly huge and profitable company. There is only one catch--she needs to pass seven tests from the "textbook of life." Thus begins the most challenging journey Sapna has ever undertaken, one that will take her from her swanky showroom to the heat and dust of India's backstreets and villages. Along the way she encounters a host of memorable personalities, from a vain Bollywood superstar to a kleptomaniac Gandhian.

Ausgangspunkt dieses Romans ist die Ermordung des skrupellosen Unternehmers Vicky Rai auf einer prunkvollen Party. Eigentlich sollte der Freispruch Rais gefeiert werden, der eine Kellnerin erschossen hatte, weil sie ihm keinen Alkohol mehr ausschenken wollte. Doch nun trifft ihn selbst eine Kugel. Zwar gibt es keine Augenzeugen, weil kurzfristig der Strom ausgefallen ist, aber die Polizei kann sechs Verdächtige ausfindig machen, die eine Waffe dabei hatten. Aus deren recht unterschiedlichen Perspektiven werden der Fall und seine Hintergründe geschildert. Dadurch entsteht ein buntes Bild des heutigen Indien mit all seinen drängenden Problemen
