"Down with your pride of birth
And your golden gods of trade
A man is worth his Mother Earth
All that a man has made."

This is the undercurrent of the story of 'Kan Kan Men Bhagwan'. The flow of this current takes one back to the ancient days of Jainath, a devotee of Lord Krishna who was born in a humble family of untouchables. The golden gates of the temples of God in those days were out of bounds for those who had the social misfortune of being born in low caste.

The priests used to trade on the holy name of God - the creator of all human beings and used to slam the doors of the temples on the poor untouchables, who could not offer anything at the feet of Almighty except their humble prayers. Jainath through his devotion compelled the high - brows of the society to throw open the gates of God for every human being, irrespective of caste, creed or colour.

'Kan Kan Men Bhagawn' which means God is omnipresent - captures the spirit of the selfless devotion of Jainath and tries to tackle a problem for which Mahatma Gandhi lived and died.
