Beaten to a pulp by the high-castes, the boy is then rescued by a woman Radhakka, who is on her way to Shigaon in the Walwa taluka of Sangli district with her sick infant son Sundarya and three other children. The journey continues as Ashok moves on with his journey and learns the true sorrows of poverty. In this journey, the infant Sundarya and his brother Ranu lose their lives. This journey of the silent, introvert boy makes him mature and then this boy educates himself and becomes a writer and writes his own story of the journey.
