‘Ajay to Yogi Adityanath’ is actually the voyage of Ajay Singh Bisht, a young boy born in the hinterland of Uttarakhand along with six other siblings. His father Anand Singh Bisht was a junior forest officer and his mother Savitri Devi was a housewife.
Since childhood, Ajay was fond of taking care of the family, and cows, listening to stories of freedom fighters, and participating in school debates. They all lived in a small house in a remote village named Panchur, presently in Uttarakhand.
From here Ajay became the Mahant of Gorakhnath Muth and then moved ahead to become the youngest member of the Indian Parliament and the Chief Minister of the most populous state of the country, Uttar Pradesh.
