Our belief in the existence of god and his magical powers to heal everything makes us embark on journeys that we normally do not take. People travel great distances through thorny paths to visit the abode of god for the fulfillment of their wishes and also to complete their vows. Pilgrims pledging to endure hardship to please the gods so as to ensure the fulfillment of their wish is an age old practice in our country.
Heart wrenching stories of people going through personal turmoil, embarking on pilgrimage to shun all sorrows of their life is abundant in this country. One such story of hardship endured by a fifteen year old girl, Devi along with her ailing, blind mother, during their journey of nine holy shrines is presented here. The uniqueness of this story lies in the fact that Devi is blessed with a divine object “Conch”(Shankham), which bestows its beholder with nine wishes. Why is Devi going on this journey with her blind mother? What are the hardships she undergoes during this journey? What is the story behind the mysterious Conch and its wishes?
This is the story of a brave girl, Devi, whose fortune is not favoring her.
