    • Synopsis
    • Swapna, the protagonist, a consummated girl in her mid twenties, belongs to Delhi the capital city of India. She is contended, fulfilled… she reaches out to get what life has to offer…quite like Delhi's revolutionized working middle class living in the fast lane modernity. Her fifteen days old marriage with Pushkar completes her cycle of jaunt. Life for her is an extended honeymoon and she seems to be sensually basking in it.
      Pushkar is a successful IT professional and a caring husband. But this perfect life pauses when she has to leave for Ladakh to complete her doctoral dissertation in cultural Buddhism.
      Sonic, a local Khempo becomes her guide on this trip. She travels all over Ladakh and Sonic goes beyond being just an academic guide for Swapna. He is a store house of knowledge and passion for life. He helps her enter a new world full of ethereal sensitivities & sensibilities. The breath-taking landscape of Ladakh, the color, the graphics in the rock structure, its mystic culture, its heritage, simplicity… mesmerizes Swapna, as much as the awakening that Sonic has lead her to. She is so overwhelmed with the mystique aura of nature and the gamut of emotions inside her that she wants to be a part of this rhapsody ... she wants to be in sync with her surroundings…to be one with nature…and Sonic's body becomes the medium for her journey. She becomes the extension of the creator, mother of the civilization… Whatever happened was her way of reaching out - way beyond any perceivable relationship - and evolving to attain a new lieu. A position where expression in form of sexuality has nothing to do with love or faithfulness, it's rather a medium of experiencing the zenith of emotions.
