Also in Lucknow are two friends, Mirza Sajid Ali and Mir Roshan Ali. Their only occupation is to play chess. While Mirza's neglected wife, Khurshid tries to wean him away from his compulsive playing, Mir's wife Nafeesa urges him on with the game, for she is playing a different game of her own. And bigger game of 'chess' is being played in the political field. The British are plotting to overthrow Wajid Ali Shah.
