It was during the winter of year 2019 when Covid struck. In a matter of days, the virus stealthily spread at an alarming, breakneck speed all over the world, leading to devastating loss of lives and crippling of economies.

She encounters all the nine heavenly bodies of 'Navagraha' and their corresponding Warriors in White in AIIMS and other leading hospitals of India. Using a heady combination of molecular medicine, astronomy and Vedic astrology, she understands the nuances and eccentricities of the virus.

At a terrestrial level, the journey starts from New Delhi to Chandigarh via Bengaluru, zipping through Mumbai and Varanasi, onwards to Noida and finally ending back in Delhi. This exhilarating and inspiring voyage in the middle of the deadliest pandemic of the world helps her to finally discover the elusive Covid's purpose.
