Ramabai (Mai) during her old age was very anxious due to the lack of harmony, love and affection among her sons, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren (kin). Their wants (needs or requirements) were excessive and unfair. So, with the confederacy of a village man Appa she advocated an Idea which united her family.
That Idea means "our ancestral treasure is in the village" and that brought harmony and love among her family.
