For high ideals, one does not have to live on high hills, nor do ideals demand isolation. He who pins his faith on the fad, faces frustration and eventually finds himself on the horns of a dilemma.

"PARBAT PE APNA DERA" is the story of a raw yet honest youth (of untutored mind) who as the mere boy was lured by the glamour of snow-clad cliffs and the hoary-headed Saintliness. Adjacent to his home on the hill, the temple gong stood as a symbol of the Voice of God resounding the voice of his inner Self. There came a time when he became indifferent and eventually deaf to the sacred voice, and fell from the dizzy heights of the haughty hills to the dazzling depths of the winsome world, where he learned to wade his way with open eyes "Ankhen Khole Ke Chal."
