Games Girls Play


Aarav Acharya, a licentious, middle-aged professor teaching at a private college, locked out of the warm embrace of his enchanting but celibate wife, preys upon the female students on his watch by plying them with free lunches, gifts and drink-sodden good times. On a field trip to Punjab he succeeds in his lustful plans and seduces three wild friends, when drinks are had and inhibitions are shed. Once done, he cools off, but the girls have other designs. Having tasted blood, they plan to extract favors in return for services rendered. Requests of a petty kind soon escalate into dangerous blackmail bringing the professor shame and financial ruin.

By their own betrayed, their own betraying, can the girls escape suffering the consequences of their acts? Can the adulterous professor be forgiven- redeemed in the eyes of his devoted family? Can the regal Mrs. Acharya, gentle in speech, rooted in her unwavering faith, in grief avenge her husband, restore the family estates, and nourish his dreams of a fashion degree in France for their doting daughter?

When the breath departs, and the man, if he is not done yet- does the spirit linger and walk the earth till it is delivered?
