Agastaya is flying in from New York. Although a successful oncologist at only thirty-three he is dreading his family's inquisition into why he is not married, and terrified that the reason for his bachelordom will be discovered. Joining him are Manasa and Bhagwati, coming from London and Colorado respectively. One the Oxford-educated achiever; the other the disgraced eloper - one moneyed but miserable; the other ostracized but optimistic. All three harbour the same dual objective: to emerge from the celebrations with their grandmother's blessing and their nerves intact: a goal that will become increasingly impossible thanks to a mischievous maid and a fourth, uninvited guest."@en ;
