The film intelligently depicts the necessity and benefits of donation to the field of education, especially in rural’ Punjab. Beside highlighting some of the problems of the rural Punjab, the film sheds light on the solutions also.

The main purpose of this film is to salute the donors and remind other NRIs about their duty towards their motherland. It is based on a case study of the Girls School of Barapind in the Jalandhar District Of Punjab.

NRIs have recharged the school staff, management, students and the local residents. Pleased with new infrastructure they are very motivated to perform and succeed.
