How a penniless waiter from Mumbai became the biggest quiz-show winner in history - warm-hearted comic storytelling by a debut author

Eighteen-year-old Ram Mohammad Thomas is in prison after answering twelve questions correctly on a TV quiz show to win one billion rupees.

The producers have arrested him, convinced that he has cheated his way to victory.

Twelve extraordinary events in street-kid Ram's life - how he was found in a dustbin by a priest; came to have three names; fooled a professional hitman; even fell in love - give him the crucial answers.

In his warm-hearted tale lies all the comedy, tragedy, joy and pathos of modern India.
