It seems strange that the book that I reviewed before this was written by a man who decided to go on a long walk, with his recently remarried wife, across France, after chucking up his bank job.

It is a theme that has gained currency today. Bored of having it all, the very concept of ambition and job expectations have undergone a sea change among those who seem to have achieved their conventional dreams. Moving away from their comfort zone, this young couple embark on a journey which takes them from Delhi to Jaipur, Pushkar, Sabarmati, and innocuous sounding towns such as Merta, Barmer, Palanpur and Barsana before finding themselves in Paharganj with its recommended “Paharganj posture”.
