Professor Chandra is about to embark on the trip of a lifetime. In the moments after the bicycle accident, he doesn’t see his life flash before his eyes, but his life’s work. He’s just narrowly missed out on the Nobel Prize (again) and even though he knows he should get straight back to his pie charts, his doctor has other ideas. All this work is killing him. He needs to take a break, start enjoying himself. In short, says his doctor (who is from California), Professor Chandra should just follow his bliss. And so he sets out to crack the most complex problem of all: the secret to his own happiness.
