Reghunandan is an ex-Bank of England employee who resigned his lucrative job because he was bored with the rather sedentary nature of his work. Having lived in different parts of the world as a bank employee, he chose journalism as his next career and worked in different metropolises in India. Not satisfied, he quit the job yet again and is now writing an English novel. He is essentially a loner but loves his pegs and has an expensive collection of vintage drinks at home. Captain Nambiar is his next door friend. So also is Meera and her husband Alex. Strange as it might seem, Meera was once married to Reghunandan. And then Manian the plumber enters Reghunandan's relaxed and comfortable life and changes everything, bringing some meaning to his life.
