Now, Returned to India is a play on words on the term “NRI” (Non Resident Indian) which is a term often used to refer to the Indian diaspora.
The book follows the life of a 30 year old man who relocates to India with every intention of heading back to North America after an year. Even though he is born and raised in India, he has never worked there. His back to India story starts on a disastrous note. For the first few months, nothing seems to be going right for him. Frustrations at the workplace are not the only challenge that he has to undergo. Readjusting to living with his parents and the presence of a very large extended family in the neighborhood further complicate his life.
One year passes by faster than he had expected, and he is ready to leave India. But something happens and he decides to stay put. That’s when the downhill journey really begins. If the first year was bad, the second year seems worse. That is, until he decides to take charge of his life.
