Bari King, a Niger-Delta militant leader, after indulging in wanton killing, kidnapping, blackmailing, and crude oil theft is now at wits-end, as his sister falls in love with his French captive. Reluctantly letting-go of the hero-worship and ego-massage, he embraces the Amnesty Program of the Federal Government of Nigeria. However, peace still eludes him, and his world becomes mired in upheaval, as the covenant of protection he made with some dark forces begins to haunt him.

In his bid to save himself, he visits a Shaman and gains an unbargained other-worldly adventure.

Jahangir was the fourth Moghul emperor of India. His empress Nur Jahan literally ruled the empire. Most of the gardens still intact in Kashmir were designed by her and built by her orders. Kashmir’s beautiful palaces and gardens became a haven for the royal couple away from court intrigues in India. Before his death Jahangir wrote in his journal:

‘All is vain, fleeting and perishable. In the twinkling of an eye we shall see the enchantress fate who enslaves the world and its votaries. Seizes the throat of another and another victim. And so exposed is man to be trodden down by the calamities of life that one can almost be persuaded to affirm that he never had existed. This world the end of which is destined to be miserable can scarcely be worth the risk of so much useless violence.’
