Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Purushan is an intellectual medical student who becomes obsessed with the suicide death of a young lad who was a drummer. At first, that's all he knows about him, but he drags people likely to have known the boy into the morgue from the streets of Delhi until someone is able to positively identify the body. That done, he travels to Cochin through Kerala state, discussing the case with his friends and gathering together a delegation of people to go with him to inform the boy's mother about the death of her son.
