1892, colonial India. The handsome young ruler of an India?princely state angers the British rulers. His fault? He has fallen in love and eloped with the Viceroy?s daughter. Not an ordinary romance, the elopement of 1892 has far-reaching consequences. It results in a child who grows up unaware of his lineage but one day, like Oedipus, he discovers the truth and embarks on a journey seeking his roots. There are no records, no documents, no witnesses, no evidence. Only stray bits of information and semi-reliable clues with the help of which he pieces together the almost incredible tale of his mother?s elopement and its tragic aftermath.
