As Mumbai empties under the threat of imminent nuclearannihilation, statistician Sarita can only think of being reunited with herphysicist husband. To find him, she must journey across the surreal landscapeof a near-abandoned city, braving gangs of competing Hindu and Muslim hoodlums.Joining her is Jaza Muslim whose true religion has always been sex. Dangerlurks around every corner, but so does the absurd: the patron goddess Devi Mahas even materialized on a beach to save her city. Sarita's search leads her tothis beach, thrusting her into a trinity so mercurial, so consuming, that itwill alter her life more fundamentally than any apocalypse.

He attended the University of Bombay before moving to the United States, where he attended Carnegie Mellon University. He received a PHD in mathematics in 1983, and became a mathematics professor at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
