In April 2006, Robin Einstein Varghese, a stupendously naive but academically gifted young man (he was ranked 41st in his class), graduates from one of India's best business schools with a DayZero job at the Mumbai office of Dufresne Partners, a mediocre midmarket management consulting firm largely run by complete morons. Varghese finds that he fits into the culture remarkably well. Or does he?
A long, long time ago, in the ancient lands of India, known in those days as Bharatvarsha, a family quarrel grew into a bloody war. There had been wars before, and there have been wars since, but that mighty battle between warring cousins of the Kuru clan has become a part of the mythology and history of India. Told and retold a million times, the story of the Mahabharata is about defeat as much as victory, about humility as much as courage. It is the greatest story ever told.
