History repeats itself, it is said! But that is not so anymore...! Yesterday we struggled to save our country from outsiders.... Today we have to shield it even from our own countrymen ! That is the trauma of every soul who prides in saying I am an INDIAN !

One such person is Raj Shekhar Azad ! From his name to his aim, emerges his unflinching patriotism. His uniform nurtures a heart that breaks each time he sees that the tricolour flag which flutters proudly into the skies is actually held captive by the stubborn pole that signifies terrorists, traitors, injustice and corruption !

Indeed, for every such patriot, there is an equally motivated terrorist ! Raj Shekhar's mission is to end every terrorist. A terrorist's mission is to end every INDIAN ! Every Raj Shekhar Azad has a spirited, motivated and at times a unique team to help him in his mission....

But a terrorist's battalion is a revelation that can only shame more than it can shock...! Raj Shekhar Azad's path is laden with stones... But he will leave no stone unturned, within the realm of law, or outside of it, to fight a battle than just has to be won.

For this is a final battle that involves all of us...
Because the day there is no India.. Is the day there will be no INDIAN !
INDIAN is a powerful echo of life that should he beard...
It is an enigmatic experience that must be felt...
It is a mirror that must be faced...!
For the time has come now for us to truly "Be INDIAN" !
