these brave young men have saved

Amri village from that monstrous crocodile.

Many many thanks, Sarman!


may your strength grow hundred fold!


Why does it always have to be you?

Is there no one else in the village?

Every time Amri has a problem,

why are you expected to solve it?

It's the truth!

When the river changes course...

Sarman must find a way

to direct water into our fields.

When to plough the fields,

when to sow the seeds...

when will it rain?

As if without Sarman's permission...

the sun and the moon

will not rise in Amri.

Now now, you should be proud,

but instead, you are scolding him.

Aunt Bima,

if I can help, then why should I not?

I was worried to death today

thinking about you and that beast.

Do not worry about me so much!

Aunt Bima, you often hum this tune.

This tune...

it does not belong to Amri, does it?

Aunt Bima, have you ever

seen a one-horned animal?

Deer like? With a long,

pointed horn on its forehead?

Why do you ask?

I saw it in my dream.

It was just that - a dream!

Now get ready...

your Uncle must be waiting

for you in the fields.

The indigo crop has not

been good this year, Sarman.

Far away, when the

Sindhu changes course...

then our River Nara also

moves away from our village.

How will the crops grow?

Uncle, may I ask you a question?

Moherfyo Datum'?

Everyone is leaving tomorrow.

This time let me go

with them for the bazaar.

You have asked the same question

for the past three monsoons now.

I am tired listening to it,

are you not tired of asking?

Until you say yes,

I will keep asking.

Uncle I want to travel

to the far off lands.

Which part does the sun rise from?

Which part does it set?

How far does the light fall?

I want to see all that Uncle.

A bird's offspring

should not leave its nest...

until it's ready to fly, Sarman.

Sarman... won't you eat?

What happened?

Once again he is insisting

on going to Mohenjo Daro!

He is upset because I said no.

His anger is like a dew drop,

it will evaporate in no time.


how long can we stop him, Durjan?

As long as possible!

He was asking me

about the Unicorn earlier.

I just don't understand!

What is it about Mohenjo Daro

that makes Uncle so restless?

He is afraid that if you

go there, you will settle down.

Hojo, do you not feel like seeing it?


What the land outside Amri is like.

What the people are like?

What the girls must be like?

You have not found

a single girl in Amri that you like.

What makes you think the girls

in Mohenjo Daro will be any different?

How would I know?

But my heart tells me that

the girl who will be my companion...

there will be no other

like her in all of Sindhu Land.

Then your meeting has

already failed to happen.

Every year, before the bazaar,

it is the same story.

Uncle does not

want you to go, Sarman.

Leave this obsession.

But I want to see Mohenjo Daro, Hojo!

So now what? You want to fly

to Mohenjo Daro like the birds do?

What happened?


The sun has yet to rise!

- Let's go!

- Let's go? Where?

Mohenjo Daro!

Mohenj0...? Without telling anyone?

What if your Uncle...

what if my Mom and Dad find out?

It's alright. Come on...

Barter 'vs not easy 'm Moheflyo Dare.

Pay close attention

to what I am about to say.

Tell me, Uncle.

Whatever happens,

do not drop the value of the goods.

Mohenjo Daro is very

different from Amri.

The city is full of greed,

not people.
