They can’t afford to stop for a single moment as there’s a crowd of savages searching for them.
She has no idea where and in what condition her husband Kabir and her sister-in-law are.
They have been separated when this atrocious horde attacked them.
The last thing on her mind is their house was on fire and all of them were running to save their lives.

Indian soldiers have more valour in their blood than oxygen! History awaits these brave hearts to make…
