Part 3, Chapter 10 Summary: “Mehrauli, 2004. Sunny”

The narrative point of view shifts to Sunny. The night of the Mercedes killings, Sunny drives through Delhi with the unconscious Gautam and Neda in the backseat. He has already forgotten about Ajay. He calls up his father’s manager Tinu and tells him what has happened. Tinu asks Sunny to meet Chandra at an address in Amrita Shergill Marg, a street where members of parliament usually have official homes. Chandra has Gautam and Neda sent away in separate cars and promises Sunny that Neda will be treated with courtesy. Sunny is taken to his father’s farmhouse, where he agonizes about his decisions.

When Bunty comes to meet him, Sunny shows him the Polaroid of Gautam and tells him that everything he did was for him. Bunty tells Sunny he is proud of him: Sunny finally knows “what it means to be ruthless” (375). The Polaroid is their way to control Gautam and his rich family for the rest of their lives. Bunty tells Sunny to get clean of drugs. When Sunny returns to the family home, he is given a reward. His father gives him land to build his dream project, but not in Delhi.
