I am on top of things. I have a seriously stuck baby inside me, and a queue of people between my legs. But I am on top of things.
Career-driven reporter Anu Narain has a plan for everything till motherhood comes along. The round-the-clock baby poops, cries, pisses and feeds make Anu lose her mind, the plot and the maid. And cabin fever strikes when her mother-in-law and her mother come over to help…
How does Anu become a working mom when her husband is happy playing the shirking dad? And when her house is a railway station where every maid is a passing train? Will Anu use wile and guile to make the maids stay and The Moms leave? Or will she succumb to that strange Indian malaise called maidomania?
Hysterically funny, unapologetically honest, and charming all the way, this is the diary of a maid-less Mumbai mom who dreams of only one thing: the perfect maid to live happily forever with!
