One day, she meets Jay Singh, during an evening of traditional Indian dances, which takes places at the hotel near her village. This is a handsome and rich 20-year-old Indian man, educated in Great Britain — every girl’s dream. Jay falls in love with the charming Trishna, as she sees her as the epitome of purity, beauty and sensuality of the traditional India with which he wishes to be reunited. When her father has an accident with a lorry and loses the source of income, Jay offers Trishna a well-paid job in a luxurious hotel, managed on behalf of his father. Leaving her family home is the chance of a lifetime for Trishna — the work in the hotel is highly profitable, but on top of that she has found a passionate love she could not possibly escape from...
