It is noted for its is noted for its exquisite beauty and the quaint character of the environment that the author has created in is portrayal of life and manners of a backward community in Chhatisgarh. The people of Chhatisgarh have strange mores and customs. The menfolk are all lean, emaciated and sickly because they suffer from veneral diseases. The women, on the other hand, are sturdy, robust and of graceful temperament. During the day, women work as porters on the railway platforms at the railway station and in market places. At night, they wear coloured saris and drink liquor. Saraswatia is a girl from that community. Thought her father's complexion is as "dark as jet black", yet Saraswatia is very fair as "white as milk". The people of Chhatisgarh pay the price for a bride to her father and they bring her home. Thereafter, she lives as wife with her husband. Saraswatia was also purchased by five scores by Chhedi Patel as his wife. He was a gatekeeper at the Railway level crossing and suffering from veneral diseases. It's a pathetic story of a tribal community suffering from veneral diseases due to corrupt social practices.
