Love, abided by faith, transcends time and such was the love found by Raj and Gouran nurtured in the lap of the hills. The two had grown up from childhood into youth, loving each other no two mortals ever did. The rift in the peaceful lute of their love was Jeevan, a mutual friend, who cast evil eyes on Gouran. When, one day, he assaulted Gouran, Raj came to her rescue. In the scffle that ensued jeevan's foot slipped accidentally on the edge of the cliff and he went hurtling down into space. The law took it for granted that Raj had pushed him over, and pushed Raj behind the bars for three years. Gouran promised to wait for Raj. And she waited. But her father who was opposed to the very idea of her marrying a branded criminal tried to wed her off to a young man of his own choice. Gouran resisted. Her father tried to reason with her, but to no avail. Standing by the window of her room, she suddenly fell from the window and into the lake below. No one told Raj about the disappearance of Gouran. Her body had not been recovered from the lake, there was in fact no trace of it! But when they did tell him after his release from prison, he was not at all shocked. He refused to believe that she could be dead. He kept looking for her at each familiar rendezvous: and was not disappointed when the did not find her. He came upon the toy, he had made for her in their childhood, the toy that was the symbol of their love. And he wiew that she would come. Transcending these barriers, unshackled love rewarded him ultimately with the presence of Gouran. But while his spirit surged, those around him were sceptical. They did not believe because they could not see, touch or talk to Gouran all of which Raj did! His faith was undying. And the love Gouran bore him was beyond obliteration by death. The travail of their souls could move even the gods to tears as it did!
