It is a story of love, valour and sacrifice set in world-war-one.
1.2 million Indian soldiers took part in the great war, 74000 of them died fighting for the British. Incidentally, UK recently announced that soldiers from India who gave their lives for Britain during world-war-one will be honoured and remembered in a four year long centenary commemoration starting in 2014.
Sikhs from Punjab played important role in France and Belgium. The war comes alive in the very famous short story by Chandradhar Sharma Guleri, on which this play is based.
Lahna Singh, a sikh boy has soft feelings for his childhood friend, a sikh girl. They get separated and meet only after 20 years in very unusual circumstances, when Lahna Singh is a Jamadar in Sikh regiment of British Army and his unit is leaving for France to fight Germans.
On the strength of their childhood love, she pleads with Lahna and entrusts him with a task. So great was Lahna’s love for the girl and so moved was he by her request that he decides to fulfill the task against all odds.
This is Lahna's story, of his love, his valour and how he fulfilled the task entrusted to him by a girl from his distant childhood, his first and only love.
