Twenty-five-year-old Ravi was a distraught man. His family abandoned him after he was declared HIV+. So much so, nobody was willing to rent him their house.


However, radio channel Fever 104 FM took up his cause.

Ravi contacted show host RJ Khurafati Nitin after he heard him saying that peoples' approach towards HIV+ patients had changed. Nitin summoned Ravi to his studio.

Cricketer Virat Kohli called up Ravi and this led to a deluge of calls by people offering their houses to him.

Cricketer Yuvraj Singh's mother Shabnam Singh requested Ravi's family to support him. Finally, Ravi was united with his family.
