Across the land animals and Brahmin alike rejoice, for the blessed child with a birthright to become a god is about to be born. His name is Siddhartha Gautama, later to be known as the Buddha.

As both Chapra and Siddhartha grow and mature, learning about the harshness of India's caste system, the choices they make lead them closer together.
