Qalam 2001 : Iqbal Rizvi

Location- Library room in her villa.

Anita Sharma 28 years in age is sitting and reading a letter she has just received informing her that her father has expired and has left behind her his farmhouse. A father she last saw when she was 8. Her parents had divorced then.

A tinge of sadness and guilt is on her face , a father she could have met but she never did try to. She gets up from a chair walks to the window looks out life goes on the streets and she looks up towards the sky and sees a plane we zoom to the plane .


She is coming out of the airport and is received by the farm incharge , her fathers man Friday Mr Samuels. The ride to the farm house is about 2 hrs he informs her along the way the farm incharge blabbers on about what the people are here but Anita is lost in her thoughts as she crosses through rugged locates and tinge of green breeze past her , suddenly finding herself in this scenario Anita feels lonely but a certain peace and is thinking about some of her moments with her father. ( which we show with flashes and sound bytes).

Her reverie is broken by the fact that Mr Samuels mentions the cause of her fathers death and she wonders how tranquil such a place and left to themselves people can be tied up with her fathers death but realises a peculiar trait that all her fathers neighbours are male and anyone of them could be responsible especially when such hostile expressions greet her. She hesitantly enters her farm house full of her fathers presence and sees her father's photo touches it and walks out into the porch and looks to the imposing mountains and ponders what to do next.
