Dastan-e-Chandramukhi - An untold memoir
The story revolves around the life and emotional ups & downs, fiery turmoil of an eminent dance diva (Chandramukhi) of the bygone age, along with other supporting characters. It's a very popular classic (Novel called Devdas) but never has been told from the perspective of a particular character (Chandramukhi) who is the protagonist here. The time frame of the story-line jumps between two different time periods mid-19th century India (Nawab Era in India) and the present-day Barcelona. There is a contemporary dancer who would step out from Spain to India to explore the lost story of a Kathak dancer of the past. Chronicles from both time periods would have one central character each connected by the same set of analogous happenings in different time frames and social set-up but echoing the same essence by philosophy. Fortune favours few co-incidences and a riveting Tête-à-tête crops up between the two.
The story unfolds further and eventually we come to know :
How one's "empiricism taught from life" is going to help the other to resolve the paradoxical discrepancy in a relationship (i.e the conflict - Love Vs Ego) ?
How can a verdict of eternal truth can help to get rid of a probable lethal consequence ?
How can a tenuous grip on reality stop from descending into a living nightmare ?
How a supreme attainment, as a choice, is preferred to an eternal wait ?
Be a part of the untold saga and get the answers.
