The incident is imagined as a lecture performance on the research findings about beings from Hindu mythology which are immortal and living amongst us in various parts of India. Ashwathama from the epic of Mahabharatha, is believed to be one of them. There are accounts of him wandering in the jungles of Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh and around the region where rivers Tapi and Narmada flow.

Presented by Jagrut Raval, the performance will narrate anecdotes from his various encounters with Ashwathama, presenting interviews and field recordings collected from the fort of Asirgarh near Burhanpur in Madhya Pradesh.
