He falls in love with beautiful Chandra Gangaram, and would like to marry her. But her father would like her to marry U.K. settled Ram Mehta, before Raja could do or say anything against this alliance, he is charged with the cold-blooded murder of Master. The climax in Raja's life is in the Court Room where he will find out about his past, and about his parents - while he awaits the outcome of the trial. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)
