Despite numerous barriers and setbacks, Ram L. Chugh is not deterred from his love of learning, which he parlays into an extraordinary career as an esteemed professor. But his single-minded quest for knowledge and teaching excellence comes at great cost, and if he does not alter his unremitting lifestyle, he may lose all that he holds dear.
