As Nikunj starts helping people and making money using his superpower, things start looking up for him. Until he meets Kalpeshbhai, a billionaire paraplegic whose family owns Param Churna, india the best Ayurvedic remedy for constipation. Kalpeshbhai, who hasn’t pooped in over two decades, hires Nikunj to treat him.
Irreverent, daring and hilarious, Turds of Gold is a story of greed, blind belief and small miracles.
Mody Jugal said: “My mother’s best friend and the person responsible for my love of books told me that my work reflected that I had strayed too far from the world of my family. So I decided to put my goal of writing about my family history and that’s how this book came to be. I want to surprise people with this hopefully different take on superhero history.
“A WRITER WHO CLEARLY UNFOLDS IN THE CHAOS AND JOY OF LIFE WITH OPEN POSSIBILITIES.”
“A NATURAL STORYTELLER.”
