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 Jaz--a 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.

display_description "Mumbai has emptied under the threat of imminent nuclear annihilation; gangs of marauding Hindu and Muslim thugs rove the desolate streets; yet Sarita can think of only one thing: buying the last pomegranate that remains in perhaps the entire city. She is convinced that the fruit holds the key to reuniting her with her physicist husband, Karun, who has been mysteriously missing for more than a fortnight."--Provided by publisher.
