It was August 1942. The "Quit India" movement had gathered momentum. Protestor, all over the country, came out in large numbers and the thunderous cry of 'quit India' echoed across the nation. The response of the British became increasingly brutal and what followed was savage repression leading to unprecedented violence, lathi charges, and ruthless firing on unarmed protestors. 

The country was quickly engulfed in flames and Kasauni, a small town in the Himalayan foothills, was no exception. It was in the midst of this savage turbulence that Nandu an Rajjo met for the first time and fell in love... a love that changed their lives forever... a love that was destined to be consumed by the ravaging firs of passion and liberation that swept the land. Because, this was also the fateful time when a group of dedicated revolutionaries, led by the outrageous and fiery Shubhankar, brought the spirit of the freedom struggle to Kasauni in pursuit of their sworn mission.

Individuals no longer mattered, all that mattered was commitment to the cause. And so began an immortal saga...of people... of freedom, od duty, of conflict, of sacrifice...and of love.
