The story is retold by the author in the most colourful manner filled with artwork. The book is on Bhihala tribe from central India. The attraction of the book is the expression of oral stories passed on from generation to generation. The tribe believes that during the origin there was only water all around. However, the subjects, harassed and wet, pray to their gods who are lazy to manage a system for getting dry. The god has to go through various troubles before the wish is granted and it comes true.
