On the outskirts of a small town in Bengal, a family lives in solitude in their vast new house. Here, lives intertwine and unravel. A widower struggles with his love for an unmarried cousin. Bakul, a motherless daughter, runs wild with Mukunda, an orphan of unknown caste adopted by the family. As Mukunda and Bakul grow, their intense closeness matures into something else, and Mukunda is banished to Calcutta.
However, his thoughts stay with his home, with Bakul, with all that he has lost, and he knows that he must return. See on E-Library
