The story begins with Sunil when he was eight years old and was inspired to set off on his quest to become a doctor after learning that "Doctors are Living gods on Earth" during a typical school lecture. Belonging to a farming family and living in a rural Rajasthan village where the highest degree of education accessible is the fifth standard, there were no prospects for him to pursue the field he desired in his region. So, he decided to travel to Jaipur, a city at some distance from his little hamlet, to pursue his passion.
But for Sunil, getting accepted into a prestigious medical school was one of the less difficult obstacles he had to overcome during his lifetime. Since what lay ahead was not for the faint of heart. Apart from academics, medical school life exposed him to eclectic hurdles.
