The characters from lowest rung of the society Kripai Amma, Anjalai, Kanniappan, and Munusamy – are described in contrast with the Zameen characters, in such a way that these society’s lower rungs display of timely action pulls down the curtain divider, as all of them mingle with each other, to raise to the occasion as per situation demanded, results in demolishing barrier-division, of inequality. It is relevant to all times, stressing as it does, the precedence of humanism over all man-made divisions in the name of caste, religion, creed and economics.
