Much anticipated Drama started
with a great narration and music. The synopsis of Drama revolves around a bus
stop in a village and two shops/families living adjacent to it. Story of the play depicts day-to-day humorous
family nagging between husband and wife. Unexpected news of demolition of the
bus stop brings shock in the life of these two families. Sudden entry of a stranger to the bus stop
and his help to save the bus stop brings hope in their life. But ultimate twist and turn in the events
keeps the audience guessing about the conclusion. The drama ends with a strong message to the
society about the true values of a family, love and importance of forgiveness.
