The family of CHENNA with his wife CHELVI and a son RANGA resides in a small village. Which is taken care by leader of that village (chairman of village panchayat)? As they are lower caste they are supposed to live outside the village. CHENNA’s one and only dream is to educate his son and getting him a post of Deputy Commissioner of that region. CHENNA basically is a cobbler. As a support to his dreams his son is a clever and an intelligent student in his education and in society too and SHAMANNA is a teacher of that village school. RANGA is well treated and taken care by SHAMANNA teacher as because RANGA is his favourite student.
Unfortunately CHENNA s family is being treated as “Untouchables” in their village and leaders of that village are not interested and will be having opposition to RANGA s education growth and they need RANGA to continue their family occupation as cobbler and they try to convince school teacher (SHAMANNA) too. Leader of that village cancel all the facilities which has given by government to CHENNA. And also they de-notify CHENNA s land which belongs to his forefathers.
