about the show
Set against the devastating background of farmer suicides in Maharashtra, Bairi Piya is a story about Amoli, a 20-year-old beautiful and cheerful daughter of a farmer Tukaram Kamble, who belongs to the Vidarbha region in the interiors of Maharashtra. Amoli, the eternally positive and optimistic girl is oblivious to her father's economic condition and that he is debt ridden just like other villagers in their taluka. A stark tale of deceit, power struggles, exploitation of the poor by the rich and the power. This story is a comment on the social evils still prevalent in the interior parts of Maharashtra like subjugation of woman by men in power, manipulation of customs and tradition by the keepers of the faith themselves, and hundreds of poverty stricken girls like Amoli who fall prey to manipulative men of might and become victims of their philandering.
