Storyline

Young and beautiful Rajeshwari is the priestess of Devi Maa Durga's temple in a small village in Southern India. She is well-known and respected by everyone in the region, including Mohan Dholakia, who plays the drum, and is treated as her brother. She is blessed by Devi Maa and can walk n bed of nails without coming to any harm while the villagers all take turns to feed Rajeshwari and Mohan. Every night she journeys with a fire-lit torch to light up a small temple of Nagraj. During one of her journeys, she meets with the new Forest Officer Shankar and both fall in love. Mohan wants them to get married and accordingly a date on the 15th of the month is fixed for the marriage. Unfortunately, the 15th is the day that Devi Maa Durga assumes the form of Devi Maa Kali to slay demons and sinners. Shortly thereafter, Rajeshwari's body is found, torn apart by a tiger. When Mohan goes to light her funeral pyre, the body appears to come alive, and Mohan is told that Rajeshwari's soul is unhappy... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)
