Abstract:

"When Ram and Tulsi fall in love, the young woman's parents are dead set against the union. She's from a high-caste family; he's an Untouchable, from the lowest stratum of Indian society. Young Tulsi's father locks her up and promises to hunt down the 'loverboy dog.' Fortunately, India's Love Commandos, a real-life group of volunteers dedicated to helping mixed-caste couples, come to the rescue. Just after they liberate Tulsi, Ram is mysteriously snatched from his hiding place. It falls to Vish Puri to track down Ram and reunite the star-crossed lovers. Unfortunately, Puri's having a bad month. Not only did he fail to recover a stolen cache of jewels, but his wallet was filched and he has to rely on his Mummy-ji to get it back. To top it all off, his archrival, suave investigator Hari Kumar, is also trying to locate Ram. In the daring race to find Ram, Puri and his team must infiltrate Ram's village and navigate the caste politics shaped by millennia-old prejudices" -- from publisher's web site.
