It started with the protagonist's failure to find correct option to define himself as religious or spiritual or spiritual but not religious while making an account on a social networking site. He thought he was an artist first. It took him a pilgrimage to Badrinathji where a story unfolds to relieve him of his dilemma. All the mundane things on this journey and life of strangers he meets, arouse a chain of complex thoughts which he connects to his study of subjects like science, philosophy or theology. A cluster and constellation of thoughts make him understand what to him being religious, spiritual or artist means. His juvenile mind and divine destiny, the mind of God, work upon him every moment on this pilgrimage to sculpt an Aastik out of him and then a mellow encounter of Aastik with a young Maths teacher leaves him introduced to her God, whom he takes back to his home. So it's a story of Aastik, someone who is not a deist or an atheist but one who makes this life a pilgrimage where his God lives with him, besides him, crowned as the first member of his family.
