Ravi Shankar Iyer is chasing a dollar dream from childhood. He makes it to IIT where he joins hundred others who have dollar dreams. Along with Satta, Matt and Priya, Sanky crosses the seven seas to make his dreams come true. Over 22 year, some top colleges, renowned organizations and some passionate love affairs, Sanky realizes chasing the dollar and leaving the country does not necessarily mean that it helps you reach the pinnacle of happiness. He connects with his college friends only to realize that they also share the same thought process. While he is at crossroads deciding the path to take forward – whether to be just one of those still holding on to a foreign citizenship and running a race that never ends or to return to his homeland to do more meaningful things – he meets a bubbly Gayathri who teaches him to view life from a different angle. What does it mean to return to a country you have left 22 years back? What does it mean to live in a country where you were born, where the dreams were shaped, where you learned to make friends, yet you are not a citizen of the country? What does it mean to connect with friends who shared every single dream of your life and worked to make it true? What does it mean to give up the so-called professional success? What does it mean to give up the Dollar Dreams? About the author: Reshma Anand is an alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology Madras and S. P. JAIN Institute of Management & Research, Mumbai.
