Muskan has a great life: a creative job in the big city, supportive friends, and no trouble finding first dates. So what if her colleagues don’t know she exists, or her friends won’t stop lecturing her about the three-year ‘situationship’ she’s in? It’s not like she’s starving.

But something is wrong, and while the people around her seem to have all the right words, nobody can articulate what they want from each other. As obstacles mount and the easy-going persona Muskan has built starts to crumble, she is forced to face a question that’s been quietly burning at the back of her mind: Why did her family move to America so abruptly?

Warm, funny, and sharply observed, Ghost Chilli is a story about trying to find honest relationships in an isolating world, and the weight we unwittingly carry.
