Though qualified as a B.Sc. Nursing Graduate nurse, he vehemently opposes the idea of entering the nursing profession because of its lower pay and thankless nature. He shows a sexist view toward this career, believing that it is suited to women rather than men. He actively tries to go abroad by marrying a foreign citizen and acquiring a visa.
As a foundation for his plan, he tries his hand at rekindling a old flame with his ex-girlfriend Salomi despite the fact that she is a nurse. Salomi at that time, is on the verge of migrating to Germany for higher wages. He digresses from his original plan to start fresh, and tries to re-ignite his unfulfilled love with Salomi, learns German and foresees Germany as his final destination.
He confides in his local guardian Gopalji, a former student of his father, that the affection showered on Salomi was a lie so that he could obtain a visa in conjecture to the existing emigration rules. Ironically, Salomi cheats Prakashan along with her family and manages to use him for money to get to Germany There she marries a German citizen to remain in the country. Realising that she exploited him and his family, Prakashan leaves his visa acquiring scam then and there.

He takes up the job with Teena Mol who has a malignant brain tumour, he is deeply moved by his friendship with Teena Mol.
