Luqman Ali is another fascinating character, fictitious and yet so real. Luqman was invented by the poet Soumitra Mohan as a character perpetually in search of himself. Through fantasy, Luqman attempts to overcome childhood fears, inadequacies, and contradictions. Luqman is a hero and villain, active and passive, with positive and negative shades, challenged by mysterious forces and unknown enemies. Often hounded by his shadow and apparition, he tries but fails to cut his desire with a sword or protect his moral life through sheer physical power. A trickster of sorts, a dreamer at times, Luqman for Jai represents the duality of life, the friction between good and evil, escapes and surrender.
