Ek Adhuri Kahani  (An Unfinished Story)




The locale is a sugar mill and its neighborhood where the workers are deprived of bare necessities and the farmers cheated. A young man comes from the city and starts a new job as a clerk. He gets to know the place and the people -- the workers and the farmers. Familiarity grows. The year of depression advances. Crises deepens and spreads all over the world. Community of dangers unite the workers of the mill and the farmerís of the neighborhood. They get ready to explode. The young clerk betrays. The voice of the militants is silenced. As simple as that, as ruthless as that. And that is not all.
