PARAMPARA is the story of a battlefield, thirsty for the blood of brave protagonists. As the 'PARAMPARA' would have it, two people came to fight each other to satiate the thirst of this battleground. As per the tradition of the land, Thakur Bhavani Singh, the land owner and Raja Bahadur, the Chief of the Gypsies fought a duel with just one bullet each in their pistols to decide who should have the right of the disputed land. The one who survived became the lawful owner of the property.

Thus, Gora Shankar lost his father Raja Bahadur in one dispute and Thakur Bhavani Singh lost his son Prithvi in another. Tara, the Gypsy girl lost her love and her life at the hands of the tradition bound Thakur and Rajeshwari lost her husband to the same tradition.

But the new generation, grew up ignorant of this violent tradition. The Gypsy girl's son Ranbir and the Rajput daughter-in-law's son Pratap met each other, made a happy four-some with their beloved Vijaya and Sapna and lived a happy life oblivious of the events of the past. But fate had something else in store for them.

The songs of love and friendship were silenced. Today they stood facing each other as protagonists on that same bloodthirsty land. Tradition bound, they stood with one bullet each in their pistols, ready to settle a dispute of honour. Will the old order of tradition win or will the new order bring in a new era of peace and harmony? Will the blood of one grandson be shed to appeal to the rigid traditions of the Thakur grandfather or will the father's supreme sacrifice save both his sons. Will one brother have to shed the blood of the other to finally satiate the bloodthirsty land or will this tradition finally revolt against itself?
