The coolness of her name plagues B. Damayanthi, along with the bunch of unsuitable prospective husbands her Amma throws at her and a dead-end job as an accountant in a decrepit firm in Chennai. When she finally jettisons her job and some of her inhibitions to join First Global Bank in Mumbai, Amma’s parting words are: ‘Be good. Don’t do anything silly.’ Translation: ‘Stay away from sex and alcohol!’ Advice that Damayanthi wants to ignore … but can she? Soon Damayanthi is negotiating competitive corporate corridors and big-city life, aided by dubious words of wisdom from the cherub-faced Jimmy, colleague and friend. She must impress the intellectual CG who has a low opinion of her; battle Sonya Sood, flatmate and size-zero sophisticate, for the TV remote, choose between resisting or giving in to temptation in the form of the seductive Rahul; and deal with the moral dilemma of ‘stealing’ a million-dollar idea for her project.
A wickedly witty first novel, Keep the Change is a rolicking story of every girl’s journey to fulfill her dreams and find her own place in the world.
