accompanies retired newspaper editor, E.R. Seturam, as he wrestle with the decision whether or not to abandon all of his possessions and become a wandering sannyasin in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. He's recently retired and is at an age when orthodox men traditionally have begun preparation for the fourth stage of life as a sannysin. As he says, "It is one thing to be an arm-chair philosopher and quite another to experience these truths for yourself. Now that I have some time at my disposal, I'm going on a quest for that experience."
