In Tagore's story, Chitrāngadā is the only
child of the King of Manipur. Being the
heir to the throne, she dresses like a
man and is the protector of the land her people look to her to keep them safe.
One day, she meets Arjuna, seeing
him in action as he hunts in the forest,
she falls in love. Arjuna is impressed by
her fighting abilities but all along
believes her to be a man. Chitrāngadā
believes he could never love her the way
she is. She receives a boon from
Kamadeva, Hindu god of love, and
transforms herself into a beautiful
feminine woman. When she meets
Arjuna again, he can't help but fall in
love with her.
What unfolds afterwards is a drama of
love, despair, heartache, betrayal and
the journey of womanhood!
