Cargo is a high tech fable, giving us a peep into a flourishing developing world of the ancient Indian demons who have now finally entered the Space Age. Our story revolves around Prahastha, (a lonely demon) astronaut who works alone in his spaceship.
His spaceship comes close to Earth every morning to receive the Cargos. These Cargos are people who have just died on Earth and we learn that Prahastha works for Post Death Transition Services (PDTS) - a large flourishing company that pioneered in computerization, transitioning and recycling of dead people for rebirth.
Today, after many years - a new popular astronaut Yuvishka, trained in cutting edge technology will be joining him.
