How the life of the people in the rural areas gets burnt due to drought, the relations get heated like the soil heated in summer. If there is moisture in the soil, there is also sweetness in man. Since it has not rained for two consecutive years, the people of the village are looking for a way to live, but that way is not permanent, people start moving to the city. They start living on the banks of the river. Livelihood of village people depends on agriculture and agriculture is totally dependent on water and dry run agriculture is totally dependent on rain. Water is life as well as if there is no water then life is impossible. The professor of the village is working to give courage to the people in such a situation during the drought. And he helps as much as he can. Between the pain of his wife and the pain of the village, the professor heals himself and heals the village.
