Rices! Wealth!! - The pleasant Dream of the poor.....the Life's Night mare for the Rich!! Our tale hovers between the two the Dream - the Scourge!

Seth Rai Bahadur Nihal Singh was the top name amongst the jeweller amongst the jewellery that he owned wa a diamond of the Purest type and was worth more than a fortune.

The fame of this diamond had spread throughout the comers not only of India but of the World. Sethji was not in the least interested in selling this diamond - however higher tempting the offer was - even though the diamond was always a source of trouble for him and the family.

Jwala Prasad was Sethji's munim and was serving his master honestly.

One day some jewellers from foreign land came and offered Rupees fifty lacs for the diamond. Of course Sethji refused to sell the diamond and the price of the diamond made the poor Jwala Prasad's mouth water. His honesty and sense of duty were shaken to their foundations.

That day the foreign jewellers met Sethji was a fateful day for from that day Sethji's life was in jeopardy. But whom God Protects none can harm or destroy, according to this saying an Angel in the shape of Night Bird appeared. 

Who was this Night Bird? What happened to the Diamond? The screen shall disclose.
