"Dharti Saadi Maa" depicts how a soldier is duty-bound in the service of motherland day and night. Sacrificing all his pleasures at the altar of duty, he may even have to suffer unexpected social stigma.

Captain Ranbir is called to war-front on the day of his marriage and has to leave before he can consummate his marriage at the nuptial bed. But his wife gets pregnant while Ranbir is fighting in the battlefield. 

How and why it happens, is a part of the life of a soldier, every moment of whose life is dedicated to the service of motherland.
