Dinesh, our hero, is shocked to discover that Kanchan, a girl student is suffering from Syphilis and she has reached an incurable stage. And above that he is stunned to watch her own mother die of VD. He takes a vow that he would join a medical college, qualify himself as a doctor and dedicate himself for the cause of eradication of sex ignorance. But his father, Seth Jamna Prasad would not agree. There follows a tussle between the father and the son and Dinesh has to bid goodbye to his home for ever. He stands on his own legs, joins one Medical College, learns different lectures on all varied sex subjects, from Reproductive Organs to Development of Foetus. He also goes abroad for studying Psycho-Somatic treatment. Eventually, he establishes his own sex clinic and earns high repute in a short time, by treating all kinds of sexual abnormalities successfully.

In contrast, Doctor Sarkar is a quack, money-spinner, a cheat, prospering on the innocence of his patients. But as the practice of Dr. Dinesh increases, his income falls sharply. He engages the services of his accomplice Chanchal to plan a plot to involve Dinesh in an offence of rape. But finally the truth comes out in true colours and it is Doctor Sarkar who is handcuffed.

Whereas, Chanchal is mischievous girl of the story trying to trap patients for Doctor Sarkar. Radhia is the maidservant of Dr. Dinesh whose sincerity and spirit of sacrifice go on attracting the attention of Dr. Dinesh to such an extent that finally, he decides to make her his wife, ignoring all barriers of status and reaction of the Society.

Mr. & Mrs. Bhargava is a philanthropic couple. It is Seth Bhargava who helped Dinesh at every stage for his education. Dinesh was obliged. How could he repay the debt? Seth Bhargava had no issue, though he was married eight years back. Dinesh applied his knowledge of Gynaecology and Mrs. Bhargava became pregnant. But that was not enough. On the day of delivery, a climax ensued. All the specialists of the city failed to execute the delivery. It was the most complicated case. Here again, Doctor Dinesh applied his psycho-somatic treatment which resulted in easy delivery and safe birth of a baby.
