My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The book is about an Anglo Indian who happens to be brought up in a rich orthodox Kashmiri Pandit family. He turns out to be a brat.
He loses his hypochondriac father. His father had ensured that he had a sheltered and pampered life. After his death he finds himself on the streets with nowhere to go.

He finds that himself changing identities as often as one changes one’s wardrobe. His travels and travails, take him through Agra, Bombay and London. Each time his identity changes and life undergoes a drastic change.

It is a decent read.
