Nishkasit is about deeply divided society along the caste lines and how any attempt to cross the caste boundaries is brutally crushed. Village Panchayat is dominated and controlled by Ramadhar’s family. They draw their strength from the age old prejudices against lower caste. Harimohan a Gwala by caste is in love with Pandit Gayaprasad’s daughter Lajwanti. He goes to Pandit for his blessing. Pandit Gayaprad is shocked by Harimohan’s effrontery. How can a Gwala walk into the house of a Pandit and ask for his daughter’s hand! Harimohan is summoned to the village Panchayat and charged with the crime of disturbing the traditional harmony of the village, molesting village’s young girls, and instigating village youth to revolt against norms. He is ordered to leave village. Pandit Gayaprasad is not happy with Panchayat’s decision. He fears that Harimohan has his property in the village therefore he will definitely try to come back after some time. He wants a durable solution. 

Fakira, a close associate of Ramadhar does not always see eye to eye with  Ramadhar. He was there when Ramadhar left a pregnant Bhanumati to fend for herself in the city. He was also there when Ramadhar decided to do a Panchayat on Chandan, a young village boy is very dear to Fakira. He revolts and how!
