Such deeply rooted is this culture in our lives, that, for one month we forget who we are, flocking in lakhs of numbers to witness the Ram Leela and especially the Janak Mahal, Ram Baraat and Ram Vivaah.

He makes many decisions in his life, few of them are correct and few of them go wrong. The last page was especially beautiful, when he dreams of his next xsura when he will see free men again.
