'Patthar Ki Lakeer' is the story of Modern age. To-day people are busy in amassing wealth, and in this rat-race they have no time to spare to cultivate culture into their children.

The basic education to the growing young generation is neglected which results in their going astray.

Unable to differentiate between good and bad-right and wrong, they indulge in all sort of wrong habits which cross all the limits demarcated by our elders for a congenial and healthy society. Specially when a woman goes astray the results are far more disastrous and painful.

Probably someone has put it correctly, 'a woman, a wife, a daughter, a sister is the honour of a family. Whenever the stains of their wrong deeds fall on the clean sheet of the family's reputation, all the family members are degraded in the eyes of society - and this is as certain as the raising sun, as sure as death, as permanent as PATTHAR KI LAKEER.
