In the first season, we saw the journey of an engineering graduate Abhishek Tripathi who becomes the secretary of the Panchayat due to a lack of a better job option. The show focussed on Abhishek’s journey as he tries to adapt to village life. In the meanwhile for better employment opportunities, he prepares for the CAT exam.
Unfortunately, Abhishek failed to secure a good rank in CAT. He decided to leave the village. However, watching Manju Devi’s confidence while singing the national anthem, after spending two days learning it, he changes his mind. He decides to stay in the village and continue to prepare for the CAT exam. Prateek, his friend from the city, advises him to enjoy his time in the village. The season ends with a glimpse of Rinki (Neena Gupta and Raghuvir Yadav’s daughter).
Coming to the second season plot, Abhishek is staying in the village, and one can expect him to get used to a rural lifestyle and get more involved in village development activities. We can expect a romantic angle between Abhishek and Rinki. So, there is pretty much in the tank for an interesting second season.
