Mother India is about Radha a poor but righteous woman who raises her two sons through many trials and tribulations. Even through the toughest times when she is near exploitation, she sticks to her own moral code. Even when it comes to her own sons she is unbiased and kills her you younger son to protect another womans integrity.
