A Screen Play (Penguin Petit)
"Abhinay wants to start a music group and while he has a singer, a guitarist, a drummer and lots of talent, he feels there is something missing—something that he finds only in Swarnalatha, a Carnatic singer, who was his mother's best friend. But Swarnalatha has her own demons to fight—the fateful accident that killed her son and Abhinay's mother. A meeting of two worlds, Morning Raga brings together the modern and the traditional, unites the past with the present, Carnatic music with Western music, and fate and coincidence with individual choices. Read this wonderful screenplay of the critically acclaimed film Morning Raga, which was directed and written by Mahesh Dattani. The film, starring Shabana Azmi, Perizaad Zorabian and Prakash Kovelamudi was released in India in October 2004."
