"A Perennial Stream" is an enchanting tale that starts in the 1740s
from a dreamy desert town of Jaisalmer in Western India. The story
then meanders to the beautiful city surrounded by hills and dotted
by lakes, called Udaipur in Rajasthan in the 1800s. Then the story
flows into the backwaters city of Indore in Central India in the
1900s and then to the Midwestern plains of the US towards the end
of 20th century. Then the story moves to the cultural capitals of
Europe in 1980s and back to the US in the 1990s, this time its
enigmatic capital city, Washington DC and finally to the newly
confident and seemingly resurgent India in the new millennium.
"A Perennial Stream" is also the story of nine generations of a
dynasty and its never ending battle against corruption and
injustice, so much a part of the Indian culture over the centuries.
It is also a social commentary on the issues of the day.
"A Perennial Stream" is about everyman and for everyman, who is on a
quest for dignity. This is a story of six great men, all
originating from the same source, all members of the same dynasty.
This is a story about the great rise and equally great fall from
grace of a family that had come to live by a strong set of values
and that had the courage of their convictions through thick and
thin. This is an also a touching story of love and romance and how
finding love made members of this dynasty better human beings.
