Villagers of Pandikona of Pattikonda mandal in Kurnool district indulge in a strange ritual at midnight, to ostracise ghosts. As many people are dying or falling sick in the village with diarrhea and vomiting, the illiterate villagers believe that it is the handiwork of ghosts and follow strange practices. But actually the reason for deaths is contaminated water. The village is a hell-hole with no one to care. Official apathy looms large even as the villagers fear that it ghosts that are creating problems.
