Early one morning, Prakash is showing his research to Professor Akram, senior research scientist in India’s atomic energy programme. It’s brilliant, possibly ground-breaking, but Professor Akram is distracted, his mind is somewhere else.
He asks him to sit with him by the window in his laboratory and look out at Delhi’s unfolding sunrise. Fifty years later, Prakash gazes out of a similar window at the early morning vista of Delhi and remembers the events of that momentous day.
Sunrise is an original drama for radio by film director and screenwriter Amit Gupta.
