    The amendment in the law making it compulsory that one thaird of the G ram representatives must be women is not received favourable by the ruling Sarpanch of the village, Thakur Ratan Singh. Although he puts up a front of being in favour of the idea, along with his son Inder Singh he conspires to field women and wivws of friends who he hopes he can control thorugh their husbands and throuigh the caste network. Inder Singh becomes the Sarpanch and his nominees are elected as panchas. Vidya, wife of Bhanwar Singh who is indebted to the Thakur is one of the newly elected Women Panchayat members. . Vidya, who is educated, notices that the political enpowerment of women is only on the paper an din reality decision making still continues to be with the manipulative old guard. Her conscience becomes restless when she finds herself helpless as a panch in responding tothepleas of Mahisari, wife of a bonded labour, to stop the landlord from dragging the husband to the mines in a state of ill health. Mahisaris angst haunts Vidya and she visits her later only to learn bitter truths about the way the village affairs are conducted by the panchayat. She is shocked to learn that there is no school in the village. . Her probe reveals that monies allotted by the Government for the school have largely been siphoned off with only a part of the school building constructed while on paper it is shown as completed. . The incomplete building is proposed to be used as a godown by the Thakur. Her efforts to find out the people behind the scam are blocked and met with threats to her life as also to her family.

When her efforts at the panchayt level fails she decides to take her battle to the Gram Sabha. Mahisari continues to be her insipration and actively helps in the struggle...
