Two idealistic lovers are leading the life of a Bollywood film script - until the real world encroaches in this modern retelling of the mythic Ramayana.

She looked up into her husband's amber eyes and, smiling lazily, pulled his face against hers and kissed him with a passion.
And that really should be the end of the story, but it's only the beginning.
Like Rama and Sita, the mythical lovers of Indian history, Chita and Shyam have set themselves the ideals of fidelity, faith and family.
But, it must be said, Rama and Sita didn't live in a Docklands loft in 21st century London.
When the monsters of management consultancy rear their ugly heads, Chita fights to resist a new-found lust for money and her devilish but utterly beguiling boss Sam. A difficult battle when Sam is piling her with expensive jewellery whilst her husband Shyam is being sulky and righteous at home.
But when does it become too late to do the right thing?
A modern fairytale with a delightfully Bollywood twist, DO THE RIGHT THING is an uplifting, feel-good tale perfect for fans of Dawn O'Porter and Marian Keyes.
