This is the story of a family who stayed in politics from the beginning.
A baby is about to born in the 'all politician family'- The Chu's.
The family has a strong political hold in the city, but that is because they received it as a gift from their forefathers. All five present members of the family are politicians, but have a domestic life very normal as that of any other family.
The story runs parallel to that of question hour of parliament and it is running on the same theme, with the same set of questions and same set of answers even after 25 years, when the Chu, born at the beginning of the story joins the parliament as a minister.
All five present members of the family were local politicians, and so was their previous generation. The story that children were taught in educational institutions of the city that being a citizen of a democratic country they had right to life, liberty, equality and good sleep and that being equal they will not be treated differently and unfairly, was just a story of the papers. Things which really mattered to them were not or could not be taught to them. Nobody left the school with knowledge of the social structure in which they were going to live their lives and its way of working. Nobody even left with the knowledge of how to make money.
The house was huge and strong and was almost un-collapsible fort with walls, thick and tall, made of mud brick and stones, and painted in red that could only be entered through the entrance gates. The house which absorbed multiple attempts of invasion to collapse it during past warfare’s of almost every category, leave aside just civil wars, holy wars, guerilla wars, war for girls, for independence or cold and hot wars and was telling the glorious tale of the history of Chu’s and the men who built it, their main rivals, the Bull’s family. Things which started as good friendship between the two families, for a matter as small as a spark it turned into hatred within few generations and that hatred failed to turn to friendship again. The Bull’s tried hard to suppress and destroy the Chu’s but did never succeed. A single failure by one of the Bull’s had thrown all other Bull’s back for too long a time and a long time to time. Various statues of the Chu’s at the cities crossroads were a reminder of their exceptional power and legacy in the area and existence of scope for debate over it were very narrow.

That was ten years back. Now it is just a rented house. A small portion which was in the backyard got dedicated to pigeons, rats, spiders and bats.
Chu family-they all have shifted to capital city. They are bigger politicians now. They now have everything that one can buy- of everything that one can buy. The address is green valley 10.
Nothing was green in there. Neither there is any valley.
At the capital city, a baby politician is coming to Chu family. Contrary to beliefs, politicians are not made. They are born; into families where sufficient politics is played at home or families which have political DNA present in the surname. Chu’s were one of them. The mamma politician is pregnant. Mamma politician is a figure who gives birth to baby politicians. It happened like an exam result- a total surprise, particularly for the papa politician who wanted to spend few more years with mamma politician as fresh couple.
