What happens when two kindred spirits meet and realise that their lives have a greater purpose than a conventional and comfortable corporate job?

In the late 2000s, Binu Verma and Ramesh Balasundaram were courting each other for marriage and also growing tired of the dreariness associated with working as corporate trainers in Bengaluru. Instead of dedicating their lives to training young Indians to join the corporate workforce, the couple felt that their energies would be better spent addressing the inequities of the public education system.
