Gandhi (14), an orphan being raised by an old man, Abdul Chacha, a Muslim, owner of a sweet shop, who names Gandhi so because he found him abandoned during partition riots. Chacha raises Gandhi to look at religion from a neutral perspective.Gandhi falls in love with Vandana, the daughter of a priest of a temple. She suggests Gandhi to learn Hindu scriptures so that her father can accept their relationship, but Chacha dies before Gandhi could ask for his permission. Only Gandhi left to run the shop, he chooses to wear a skull cap as respect for Chacha, thus choosing Chacha over love.But Chacha’s friend tells Gandhi that Chacha has willed this sweet shop and an orphanage in Ajmer to his family in Ajmer, who lived away from Chacha because they did not accept Gandhi. Although disappointed, Gandhi accepts Chacha’s will. Reaching Ajmer, it is disclosed that this was Chacha’s way to test if Gandhi deserves to inherit.
