NAYA DAUR - the dawn of New Age - the story of the new generation !

The story of young Mahesh with cherubic face and smiling eyes - brilliant student, dutiful son, ideal lover, young romantic with all dreams still bright and shining !

The story of angry Mahesh realising after a long spell of job - hunting the worth of his long cherished degree is no more than a scrap of paper !

The story of desperate Mahesh learning with disgust that values of life his elders clung to are no longer true and taking to crime as a way of life, as the way to success and riches.

The story of the disillusioned Mahesh with filled coffers and empty heart, empty soul, empty life, with heaps of money and that money can buy, but a gaping void in his world where are they whom he loves?  Where are they??

Where are they???

His heart, his soul, his life cry out in pain !
