On the eve of the interim budget, Divya (a journalist), Jogin (a student), Mack (an American expat working in India) and Bidyut (an economics professor) get together for coffee. The conversation drifts towards the obvious.
Divya: You are unusually quiet, Jogin. What is the matter?
Jogin: I am wondering what the budget will throw up. The suspense is killing me.
Divya: There are wide spread expectations of sops.
