The second episode of "Maya" introduces the opening voice-over, "Young Terry Bowen arrived in India from America to join his father, great white hunter Hugh Bowen. But, Bowen has been lost on a tiger hunt and is presumed dead, although his body was not found. Convinced his father is alive, Terry escapes the authorities who would ship him back to America. Teaming up with two other fugitives, Raji, an orphaned Indian boy, and Maya, his elephant, Terry Bowen searches for his missing father through the strange cities and dangerous jungles of India." Footage from the first episode precedes the opening credits...
More great location footage and an exciting story makes this episode a strong entry, although there are some corners cut. Searching for a clue concerning his father's disappearance, Terry (Jay North) goes undercover in a small village being ruled by dictatorial Iftekhar (as Jank Bahadur). Maya and Raji (Sajid Khan) stay behind, but will hopefully join Terry before he is either mauled to death by a bull or shot while gagged and bound. Terry must lead a charmed life, since he so often looks like a goner. Also in danger, local youth Akashdeep (as Harvant) joins Terry and Raji in attempting to save the village from virtual slavery.
