This book is a non-fictional visualisation of current global incidents through the lens of Thirukkural.

The book inroads into the raging COVID-19 pandemic, polygamous Chinese lifestyle, Singapore – an axle, and tech giants such as Google, Apple, etc.

The first chapter, ‘American Presidential Election 2024’, starts with the voyage of Columbus and covers a little about the Red Indians. Pasu, from Anna University, and Guru went to America for MBA in Ivy League. Guru joined Harvard and Pasu went to Kellogg School. Pasu fell in love with an American girl, Dorzah, in Kellogg. About 80% of this chapter is in a WhatsApp conversation format – a trending social media for all generations.

Interestingly, Dorzah is a republican and Pasu is a democrat supporter. The MBA friends from American universities started the WhatsApp group, ‘MBA Round D World’. Students from Harvard, Yale, UCB, IIT, LSE, ETH-Swiss and Moscow University are in it. They debated on the Presidential Election 2020 and finally landed in 2024. The subject changed to Swiss Direct Democracy, Brexit, Myanmar Coup. The Group, interestingly, entered into the ‘Happiness Index’ of the top 10 country’s research.

Dorzah is also Trump's fan. The Group’s debate on the politics between Pasu and Dorzah did not affect their true love. The 1330th Kural reminded us, “Quarrelling adds delight to love; a hearty embrace [thereafter] adds delight to this quarrel.”

Thirukkural was penned 2,000 years back by Thiruvalluvar and translated into 42 international languages.
