Description: Finding one's bliss, let alone following it, can be quite a challenge, and that is the case for Cambridge professor, P.R. Chandrasekhar. Chandra's failure to be awarded a Nobel prize in economics (yet again), and an unfortunate altercation with a bike, make him a reluctant late starter to such a quest. California is his destination, where with his estranged family's blessing, he submits to a course in self-awareness at the famous Esalen Institute, a first step on the road to enlightenment ...

An amusing, insightful and gently satirical story that reminds us that it is never too late to re-evaluate the important things in one's life.
