It is the story of a village called Bhamboda near pune in Maharashtra. The Subedar of Pune from a long time had been paying his visit to Kathiawaar for yearly collection of tax. His wife Janki was a beautiful, devoted, dedicated lady, who loved her husband very much. After hearing the news that her husband has to go Kathiawaar she was in a deep sorrow, so she asked her husband to give her some work to keep herself busy. So Sarjay Rao asked her to build a palace made of glass and that too without using any money from his side, in his absence. Although whatever he said was a part of joke, but his wife Janki took it seriously and wanted to fulfill the wishes of her husband. This is the story of the play. The character of Joravar and his Diwanji create some funny moments in his play. A husband-wife relationship is based on faith towards each other, if there is a tittle mistake then the life becomes hell for them, In his context in our male dominating society, it is true that it is always the woman who is asked give the test of life. If a woman commits a mistake she is defined as characterless & if it is done by a man he is spared. This play shows the funny side of the truth behind a man and a woman relationship.
