Ever since the inception of the world, Man has been a puppet a toy - playing to the commands of his mind, influenced and infatuated by various instincts - most ruinous of all being the GREED. With unending lust for material comforts and perishable gains the Man - the toy - succumbs to the lures of deceptive worldly glitters and in the process invariably loses the possession of the most precious and indestructible wealth - the wealth of Love, Honour, Trust and Harmony.

There was a middle class family consisting of Madan, a medical salesman, his wife Ganga, their small daughter Guddi and Madan's younger brother Sharad, a college student. Ganga was shining symbol of Indian womanhood - a dedicated housewife, considerate mother and very affectionate Bhabhi. Ganga as such, was a highly respected woman for her virtues and had immense love and trust of all which made Ganga one of the richest women in real sense of the world. Sharad loved and respected his brother Madan and Bhabhi Ganga just like his parents. Looking at this happy and contended family many people very often called them Ram, Sita and Laxman of Kaliyug. Ganga gave birth to her second child - now a son. Madan adored his wife Ganga with respect for her outstanding qualities.

Sharad and Poonam - the young lovers in college had to be suddenly married and Poonam's entry in this happy family further enhanced the happiness and very soon she became the darling of everyone. Sharad got a handsome job but much against his wishes he and Poonam had to live separately. Sharad progressed and prospered but their family life plunged in gloom when doctors diagnosed that Poonam could never become a mother. This was a very big shock for Ganga too.

At this turn of events Ganga' unprecedented sacrifice which no ordinary woman could do lighted a lamp of hope and joy in the dark and empty home of Sharad and Poonam.

A few years passed quite happily but alas ! the vicious human mind polluted the purity of Ganga with deadly germs of Greed and Selfishness and as a result, the towering character of Ganga was reduced to an ordinary self-centred greedy woman. This unexpected fall of Ganga shocked Sharad and Poonam and gave an unbearable blow to Madan.

So once a very happy, contented and united family was miserably designated - the dragon of Greed swallowed all the joys, harmony and trust of these adorable people.

Ganga realised her grave mistake the poison of Greed flowed out of her eyes in form of tears of heart-rending repentance and thus culminated this thought-provoking story AADMI KHILONA HAI - This family episode - a social pointer has been specially made for you and yours.
