Dr. Said Nacif, a young Egyptian-American professor, moves to Mumbai ostensibly on 'transfer.' He befriends his student, the rather intelligent Samiksha Navami, who seems capable of reading people at first sight.
As Sami spends more time with her professor, their relationship develops, and she realises that his reasons for moving to Mumbai are deeper than an academic transfer, and life in a country with a past as rich as his native Egypt...
Bound by a prophecy that linked their fates through their past lives, Sami and Said find themselves slaves to destiny as they travel to Cairo to solve an ancient mystery, one that runs in their veins as truly as the Great Souls of ancient Egypt and India intended, the Parmatmas who control their lives like master puppeteers, to ensure that ancient secrets do not stay buried...
