Every cloud, they say, has a silver lining. If there is one action of India?s 1962 fiasco in the Northeast that counts as a moment to treasure, it is the battle of Nuranang. Sikhs, Rajputs, Gorkhas and Garhwalis all fought like tigers. But towering above their stories of courage is a saga of selfless love and indomitable courage. The actors on this brief stage were a Garhwali solider, and two anonymous Monpa girls. This is the story of that legendary soldier, Jaswant Singh Rawat. When Jaswant Singh Rawat arrives in Tawang with his battalion, he is already a hero for his friends and colleagues. But his meeting with the sisters, Sela and Noora, transforms their lives and the history of a nation, in a way rarely seen before. Love blossoms, even as the dogs of war are unleashed. Will Jaswant?s love for his Monpa beloved win the day? Are Noora and Sela?s pristine affections doomed to be crushed under the boots of a marauding, relentless enemy? Will hate and jealousy triumph, or love conquer?
