Kali and Ponna have a strong desire to have a baby, but all their attempts at it are failing. They are disturbed by the constant insult they face from others. Their remaining hope starts converging on the chariot festival that happens at the temple of the half-female deity, Ardhanareeswara. According to the festival, rules imposed on sexual intercourses on any other day are relaxed for the night, and the consensual union between any man and woman is given consent by treating it as a human act. Will the night put an end to the couple?s longtime suffering and mortification or have an adverse impact on their marriage. Printed Pages: 240. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
