Summary: Love story scripted by the prominent Gujarati novelist Patel. The hero Kanji, separated from his lower-caste girlfriend Jivi, tries to persuade her into a pro-forma wedding which, he hopes, will allow the couple to continue their relationship. Things take a tragic turn as Kanji is forced to leave the village and Jivi commits suicide. The earthy realism of Patel’s descriptions and language is substantially retained.
