Excerpt from Stanford University: Drama Graduate Student Showcase (link)

"Two friends there were – one mind, one heart."  The two men are best of friends till both of them fall in love with the same woman, Padmini, and one of them marries her. She is in love with her husband’s mind, and the other man’s body. In an act of sacrifice, the two men chop off their heads in a temple to the Goddess Kali. When the Goddess graciously gives her the chance to rejoin the heads, Padmini mixes them up. Who is Padmini’s husband now – the man with the husband’s body, or the one with his head?
