Nobody knows whether ghost exists or not but still many of us do believe that they exist. People like Dhruv, Mitesh, Amar, Kranti, Turag and thousands like them exist but the society ignores their existence or criminalizes their need. Who is forcing them to live like ghosts? Are they supposed to be like that? Can love be considered a crime?
