(* The Sacred Thread in Hindu tradition is a long necklace composed of three strands of cotton, each formed by nine threads. It is worn over the left shoulder and under the right arm. It is given only to Brahman-born young men at the conclusion of a ceremony marking the rite of passage to manhood-a spiritual Initiation. The Initiate is supposed to wear The Sacred Thread under his clothing at all times.)
The feature film, Broken Thread, was based on my play, The Sacred Thread.
