Welcome to the real world, where superheroes live. They are no different from us – confronted with life’s turmoils and challenges. Like the young performer in The Music Weaver, whose heart tugs him to leave his cushy life behind for exciting but uncertain possibilities. The mountain porter in The Determined Dreamer,who can’t control his yearning for something bigger, better and greater. The number-whiz in The Mathemagician,who outshines his teachers, even though he fails his high school exams. The aspiring pace-bowler in The Game Changer, whose talent, passion and dedication are dismissed as an impossible dream. The US-educated engineer in The White Knight, who returns to India with stars in his eyes but lands his first job in a dusty small town in the middle of nowhere.
• PANDIT RAVI SHANKAR, the sitarist who introduced Indian classical music to the world.

• SRINIVASA RAMANUJAN, the one-of-a-kind mathematical genius.
• KAPIL DEV, India’s greatest fast bowler and all-rounder.
• DR. VERGHESE KURIEN, father of India’s milk revolution.
