This book tackles the complex theme of identity; it is a journey of self-discovery through the myriad human relationships that help us to see things in perspective and in context. Written in the form of a graphic novel, it tells the story of Mandy -- a second generation Indian born and brought up in Chicago. He is as American as they come -- hot dogs, French fries, baseball and a love of all things American. He is, of course, no different from his clones who are in several other parts of the world -- England and Australia, the Netherlands and Canada. They blend with their surroundings by assimilating the culture of their adopted home and denying their Indian roots and heritage. In the case of the hero of the book -- he has even changed his name from Mandeep to Mandy. The goes on to capture his metamorphosis during a forced trip to India, at the end of which he chooses to be an Indian by choice.
