High on Kasol
Against the backdrop of the Himalayas lies little Kasol, a beautiful but ‘notorious’ hotspot on the Parvati river, dubbed the ‘Mini Israel of India’.
The plot of this hair-raising thriller will explain why
It unfolds with the sudden disappearance of a young Israeli woman who, ironically, had come to the small hill town to probe the mystery behind other foreigners who have gone missing from the valley. The lead character is an aspiring writer, putting up at a guesthouse in Kasol--because he loves the view from it----only to discover its dark secrets. Seizing on the subject as the perfect setting for a televised story, he undergoes a series of experiences bordering on the supernatural, not a little inspired by the burgeoning culture of artificial drugs in the area.
