This Radio Drama is based on the Phaneshwar Nath Renu’s story, ‘Panchlight’. From collections made from fines over the last fifteen months, all the Panch of the Mahto toli purchased a panchlight at this year’s Ramanavami fair. The village has eight Panchayats in all, each caste has its own assembly and each Panchayat owns a common rug, a sheet, a carpet and a Petromax, which is also known as panchlight in the rural idiom. It is about the journey from its purchase to operating it. The story is immersed in Bhojpuri music and environment. The story interprets the illiteracy of society through a gas lamp and creates a satire on the structure of society which is full of discrimination. It combines tragedy and comedy, accompanied by melodious music.
