Poverty and the unavailability of educational facilities deprive many a child in India of education and progress in life. Basic education at the grass-root level is still a dream for thousands and thousands of children and much work needs to be done in this regard.
However, there are many unsung heroes and organizations who are quietly and tirelessly working to make dreams come true for children from the lower economic strata and rural areas.
â€œâ€¦Jyotirgamayâ€ (literally meaning from darkness to lightâ€”a line from the Sanskrit Sloka in the Bá¹›hadÄraá¹‡yaka Upanishad-1.3.28â€”"Oá¹ asato mÄ sad gamaya-tamaso mÄ jyotirgamaya") attempts to throw light on the efforts of such heroes, altruists, and good Samaritans.
The film is based on visits to such organizations and individuals who are working for to uplift of the needy through education.
