The plot of Project: Kalki begins with the advent of the end of the world, aggravated by war, famine, suffering and chaos that prevail through out the world. In the course of the story in the year 1874, an ancient artifact is discovered which contained a fragment of the remains of Rama
, the Prince of Ayodha
and the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Almost after a century, Dr. Shyama Bhalla, a geneticist, obtains the remains who attempt to recreate a creature from the ancient DNA in a lab in India, which will obviously bear some disastrous results. Thus from the DNA obtained from the remains of Lord Rama, a clone is created by the evil geneticist and is named Avatar. The clone develops into a mature person at an accelerated rate and starts to exhibit an extraordinary ability to convey emotion as energy.
The powers of the clone become uncontainable and unmanageable and he eventually finds out that he was created as a destructive force that has never been created before. The sole purpose of his existence was to bring Armageddon that is the end of the world, instead of saving it from misery. The entire project is spearheaded by a diabolically evil person. The rest of the story revolves around the clone and his decision to either follow his instincts to do the right thing or to fulfill the purpose of his existence.
The Indian comics series Project: Kalki is pregnant with religious themes about salvation, and is an yielding tale of puzzling characters, covert science and about the end of the world.
