Rajasthan is a vivid land of colour and spice, Maharajahs and gods. But the vibrant city of Udaipur is not the peaceful Hindu refuge it once was, and as India races towards modernity its youth faces a cultural identity crisis.When young Raj hits a cow with his motorcycle, little does he know that he has started a chain reaction that will obliterate his close-knit group of friends. Mariam is a Muslim artist forbidden to paint Hindu deities. Her paramour Shiv aches to be a politician in a city ruled by gangland overlords. And lovelorn Vansh finds himself sucked into a mystical vortex from which his mind may not recover.Set against the sweeping grandeur of Rajasthani history, Cycles of Udaipur spins on the axle of tradition and progress: a tangled web of hope, faith and enduring passion that epitomises a new India heretofore unknown to the West.
