Raji Singh survives a grim existence with his soaring imagination. Inspired by stories from his great-great grandfather, Raji weaves past and present into a wild web of tall tales and adventure.

Imagine Mark Twain writing "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and you'll be ready to fly with Raji Singh.
