Two very powerful financiers of the Al Quaida are caught crossing the border by the Indian Army. Unarmed and appearing to be asylum-seekers on the run from the persecution of the Pakistani defence forces, their cover is blown when Bangladeshi passports are found on them. The Chinese, working with a faction of the Al Quaida, desperately want them back.
A Pakistani terror-organization also demands their release and orchestrates a pointed attack on an ONGC offshore field. More such attacks follow until the Indian government finally wakes up to the situation. The hostile trail leads back to the Chinese who are now working towards the economic collapse of the western economy.
Interwoven, but seemingly unconnected, episodes of terror activities bring to light the nuclear waste-ridden waters off India's coasts and expose how small nations are bought out by developed nations for their natural resources. This while certain sinister and powerful nations are fast becoming international power cartels, working quietly behind the scenes to instigate heinous and catastrophic events around the world.
