Twenty-five-year-old Jinni lives in Mumbai, works in a hip animation studio and is perfectly happy with her carefree and independent existence. Until her bossy grandmother shows up and announces that it is Jinni s ´duty´ to drop everything and come and contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from their sleepy hometown, Bittora. Of course Jinni swears she won´t. But she soon ends up swathed in cotton saris and frumpy blouses, battling prickly heat, corruption and accusations of nymphomania as candidate Sarojini Pande, a daughter of the illustrious Pande dynasty of Pavit Pradesh. And if life isn´t fun enough already, her main opposition turns out to be Bittora ex-royal Zain Altaf Khan, an irritatingly idealistic though undeniably lustworthy individual with whom Jinni shares a complicated history.... Enlivened by Chauhan´s characteristic brand of wicked humour and sexy romanticism, this is a rollicking new tale of young India. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Meetu Chilana.
