Meet Ajatashatru Oghash Rathod. One day a fakir leaves his small village in India and lands in Paris. A professional con artist, the fakir is on a pilgrimage to IKEA, where he intends to obtain an object he covets above all others: a brand-new bed of nails. Without adequate euros in the pockets of his silk trousers, the fakir is all the same confident that his counterfeit 100-Euro note (printed on one side only) and his usual bag of tricks will suffice. But when a swindled cab driver seeks his murderous revenge, the fakir embarks on a European tour, fatefully beginning in the wardrobe of the iconic Swedish retailer.

Funny, quirky, fast read and has a good message.

A thoroughly enjoyable romp. Takes into account our foibles as humans, our prejudices and inherent love of a good scamp.

While it's true that there are some very funny and comical pieces to this story, our hero becomes cognizant of the larger issues in life throughout the tale, and there are some serious values brought up by the end of the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed!
