Summary :

Sampath Chawla, born in a hullabaloo and destined for one, is least inclined to be searching for one. But this son of an industrious man, an obsessive woman, and an eccentric town of Shahkot simply can't help it. He has a magnetism that can only be attributed to a recluse.

When the pressures of conformity become too great, Sampath simply removes himself from the world around him and makes a home up a guava tree in the foothills of the Himilayas. Alas, the world follows him to his tree, and he becomes and soon embraces his role as one of India's most acclaimed and scrutinized gurus.

Throw a band of rascally babboons into the soup of human quirks and vices, and watch the Hullabaloo boil up!
