The opening is that of a sixteenth century Vijayanagara aristocrat, Devadatta who is pencilled in into a weird and wonderful and enthralling, yet illicit, companionship in the company of a Persian explorer and a Portuguese merchant with the yarn puts in the picture of a social order motivated by class centred customs in addition to effluence inviolable, as well as presided over predominantly with the imperial command. In such an indulgence, the surreptitious adore concern among the noble and the Persian ought to escort them inexorably inescapably into an appalling kismet.

The bottom line of the work of fiction lounges centuries afterwards, in the peers journal, which is found out fairly by chance in the Indian west coast settlement of Honavar by a scholar of History, Sharat, the historian, who renders the romance of Devadatta, as of its indigenous medieval dialect of Kannada to English.
