'Imagine a story woven by intermittent meetings between "Gyan" and "Vigyan". Kalidasa, the legendary poet, and a Scientist. One, the metaphor of illusion, representative of Art. The other, a Metaphor for Reality.
Imagine an earthy story threaded onto a divine string. Held together by Leonardo Da Vinci who travels through time with Kamdev, the God of Love. As both travel through centuries and millenia in search of their ideal woman, the elusive sound of her anklets paces the rhythm of one man's brush and the breath of the other man's flute.'
