Description: What happens when fate chooses an ordinary man for an extraordinary mission?
Arnab Bannerjee has little excitement in his life other than tracking down missing books as the Assistant Librarian in a small college in Delhi. All that changes one day when he is beaten and left for dead after a robbery. Arnab awakens to discover that he has developed fantastic superhuman powers and he tries to master his new¬found powers and to use them for good. As a hooded superhero he takes to the streets on a one-man crusade against injustice. However he soon realizes that in a society where the only power that matters comes from having money or the right connections, one man, even a superhero, can make little difference.
When he embarks on a final, desperate mission, he realizes that to succeed, he has to become a part of the very system he loathes by tapping into a motley set of allies such as the Minister who wants to use his powers to rig elections, the corrupt policeman who shot Arnab for exposing him and the corporate tycoon who wants to sign him up as a brand ambassador!
Reviews: "I found the story engaging (He's a book lover!) right from the start. I haven't read a book set in modern India before, and enjoyed learning those insights. The plot moved quickly, realistically, and unpredictably in a very character-driven way. All the antagonists were intelligent and ruthless. Great story. Highly recommended."
