The Surveyor of Properties highlights the lives of its ordinary minions forced to live a life of exaggerated highs and lows as India sleepily awakens to its technological boom.
Is there a price tag for eschewing material wealth and social advancement?
Driven by the unspoken belief that desire is the root cause of all suffering, the close-knit Rao family of four inhabits a modest home and leads a simple life in the heart of rural Southern India.
Despite wanting nothing more than the deep filial love that binds them together they find themselves tossed against the headwinds of a laborious but relentlessly modernizing India.
Surya Rao and his sister Maya make conscious efforts to manage their problems with dignity and restraint. Societal norms entwined in a two thousand year old tradition encroach their inherent shyness as life insists on prodding its drama into their existence.
