Most of the plays in Maithili language are based on the stories derived from the lineage of Lord Krishna and his characteristics. But in Dhurt Samagam a saint and his students are the central characters. Every character in the narrative is one up in cunningness from the other. The saint along with his student, Snatak visits late Thakur’s place for alms, the household people take a plea of impurity due to death in family. Vishwanagar and Snatak then visit Suratpriya’s place. Here, the mentor-disciple start fighting amongst themselves for a prostitute named Anangsena. Both of them take the prostitute to Assajaati Mishra to resolve their fight, but Assajaati Mishra and his helper Bandhubanchak both turn out to be more lecherous than them. Finally, Assajaati Mishra proclaims that it is this sly nature that has helped him to con the world and obtain his beloved. It is this essential nature which is the most precious thing for him in the world. However, he says that he always hopes for the peace and happiness of the universe.
