- DescriptionIn three stories, Uday Prakash explores the different lives of modern Indians. A Delhi sweeper discovers a cache of black money and escapes to see the Taj Mahal with his underage mistress; an Untouchable races to reclaim his life stolen by an upper-caste identity thief; whilst in the third stories a slum baby's head gets bigger and bigger as he gets smarter and smarter, while his family tries to find a cure.
