Anjali Bose is "Miss New India." Born into a traditional lower-middle-class family and living in a backwater town with an arranged marriage on the horizon, Anjali's prospects don't look great. But her ambition and fluency in language do not go unnoticed by her expat teacher, Peter Champion. And champion her he does, both to other powerful people who can help her along the way and to Anjali herself, stirring in her a desire to take charge of her own destiny. So she sets off to Bangalore, India's fastest-growing major metropolis, and quickly falls in with an audacious and ambitious crowd of young people, who have learned how to sound American by watching shows like Seinfeldin order to get jobs as call-center service agents, where they are quickly able to out-earn their parents. And it is in this high-tech city where Anjalisuddenly free from the traditional confines of class, caste, gender, and moreis able to confront her past and reinvent herself. Of course, the seductive pull of modernity does not come without a dark side . . .
