somewhat a real life character, seen by the author. The doctor does not believe
that materialistic life can fulfill all the needs for a happy life. There is something
more to that.

the doctor were the pillars of wisdom in his life. The suffering after the passing
away of his wife was foreseen by her and she prepared the daughter who was
just a young girl to take the responsibilities. The most important sub-plot in this
particular story is of a wheelchair person. Mist, the doctor’s daughter, helped him
to win over his own arrogance.
