BARAD a barren land of fertile dreams Alkud (M) is a typical small village in a Maharashtra with an agrarian economy and a simple life, like any other village. The urban way of living fascinates, but the economy doesn’t allow. The story starts with a survey conducted by a government agency at Bardi, the barren land adjacent to the village. Anna, a village veteran, is called for, as a witness to the survey. Anna enquirers about the survey. The information by the officer contains some crucial words in English. Anna and Appa try to conclude a meaning… guessing remains their only access to what this survey is all about.
Anna is respectable personality of Alkud (M). He was active politician few years back. Unable to cope up with the new way of politics, isolates himself from active politics… but always kept himself socially active. His efforts showed when Alkud was recognized by the Government as a non-quarrelsome village. (Tantamukta Gaav).
Anna’s guessing about the survey transforms to fear, the fear of acquisition of land, which compels him to fence his piece of land. This simple act becomes a genesis of rumor… Guess transforms to gossip, gossip to rumor and rumor to a news…!! The news of a proposed industrial zone at Alkud spreads throughout the Manjari legislative constituency……!
Arunbhau, sarpanch of Alkud, who’s an active and a typical new line politician, learns about this and further propagates it to MLA Waghmare.. Now Waghmare tries to confirm the news immediately, as he plans to declare the same officially as early as possible; to show his efforts for new industrial zone.
This, he thinks, will fetch him great political mileage. But unfortunately, the news leaks to Walzade, Minister of Industry, who belongs to the same district. For his ambitious political dreams, Walzade wants to retain all legislative assembly seats, for his party and faction. In the last election, his sole loss came at Manjari..!! So Waghmare was always there on the top of his hunt-list..!! He gets all the information about survey and its significance but for his political game he just holds the reality.
This game of political one-upmanship at every step becomes fodder for rumor..!! Waghmare starts buying land in Alkud.. His target of 200 acres creates a wave of speculation..!! The non-fertile and barren Bardi turns gold..!! This wave disturbs the harmony of the village. By the time this political game ends, the village lost its human relationship pattern and simplicity of being. A warlike scoundrel spreads all over, which hampers the community thread. This forms the core of the story… A story which has parallels in every society across the world… Alkud, solely coincidentally being the stage here.
