However, every mortal being has right to leave the mundane world and take the path with leads to moksha, irrespective of the petty caste and creed disputes. All human beings are same for the Creator.

An orphan kid named Rohidas has been raised b his uncle and aunty. From the very childhood, he wanted to take lesson from a known saint called Swami Ramdaas. However, he was denied education since he comes from the untouchable community. 
Before he could make his Guru Swami Ramdaas understand his eagerness and love for learning, he goes away to some distant land. Still, the anxious yet determined Rohidas managed to learn all the necessary things in the absence of his Guru and becomes a learned man.

Regrettably, his engagement with his childhood fiancée Ratan was called off. Ratan, who was deeply committed to Rohidas, dies by poisoning herself. However, before her dead body could be cremated, Rohidas utters some mantras in her ear and she magically come back to life. Soon, the happy couple starts their new life.
