However, one can never put away the identity of one’s birth. Jaggi nurtures a dream to escape the social intolerance by moving to the USA and works hard to make his goal a reality. However, as he grows older, he sees children, the other untouchables like himself, who need his help to break the cycle of oppression. However, before the opportunity to move to the USA presents itself, Jaggi’s conscience and empathy guide him to lead the children in their struggle, instead of running away to fulfill his own dreams.
