Synopsis

They say that a thousand years ago, a princess from Kalipur, driven by her desire for knowledge took a long journey around the world: 

She visited the great cities of China, the Empires of Uzbekistan and the splendid monuments of Persia.

On her return she was greeted with great joy by the people, especially by Prince Arun, the noblest of the Indians, to whom she was promised as a child.

SUDAHNYA

Ah, mmm, and then what?  What happened?

The day before the wedding she presented herself to her betrothed, her body was painted with the mehndi, an art he had learned in Persia that had never been seen before in India...

Impressed by this extraordinary woman and unwilling to give  up his love, he asked her permission to accompany her in her journeys

And so came the art of mehendi to India.., by the hand of a wise woman

And then? Tell us everything, Did they get married on the trip? Did they go back to India?

For god´s sake , Sudahnya. You and your hopelessly romantic questions...

I don't know if they got married or not. History says they left together, as friends, and that's all.

Feelings are important. A story without feelings is a dull story

ABONTI

Let them travel in peace. Don't be pushy.

SUDHANYA

What's wrong with wanting to know if they got married?
