Surnai's Peechha Karti Parchhaiyan
This is the story of the family of the late Maharaja Kunwar Viraj Bhanu Pratap Singh, whose death is shrouded in mystery, talked of in whispers and hidden in the inscrutable eyes of his widow, Yashodhara Baisaheb.
The scene opens with Yashodhara and Purohitji, the family priest, who has come with a property deal for the family. The family is busy since the following day they are dedicating a school in the name of the late scion. The young son and heir, Kunwar Yuvraj, has come down specially from Paris, where he has made a name for himself as a painter and designer, severing his ties with his feudal past. He had been sent to Paris at the age of seven by his mother, to keep him away from the machinations of his feudal environment. As the story unfolds, we see the causes of the break-down of families, symbolised in the destruction of the havelis they inhabit. But yet the ghosts of the past cannot be destroyed.
