A film by

Ritwik Ghatak


- Come here

Go tell your father, at month end,

it'll be two months

I will

Just this time Banshi'da.

I can't do without a shave

So, you and your father will

give me a clean shave!

Any idea how much

it adds up to?

Dark girl

Dark complexion,

that's what?

Now don't start a tangle

go to school

Her tuitions would be over,

what if she suddenly turns up?

She will be hurt

if she hears us!

Such a responsible girl!

Doing M.A. Classes - and not

one but two tuitions

brings home forty

rupees every month

What is more -

Heard at the meeting

evictions are on the rise again

They might even stop

the school grants

Do I get you a mat

to sit down and gossip

Your slipper's torn, Khuki?

I've had it fixed

Teacher, Sir, your

subscription for the colony

Hey! Listen. I've to talk to you

Into the room came

the bumblebee humming

You're late for college

go bathe

A love letter - so late in life?

At first sight I didn't

recognise you

I thought you just one

of the many

But now I see you in the cloud...

perhaps a star,

cast over with clouds

of circumstances,

Your aura dulled and

scratched over

Stop it!

Let's have a look at the name

Sanat - that idiot!

Hey, where did you find him?

Haven't seen him for ages

Poking your nose in a

woman's personal affairs

If you're a person, some day

someone will find me a genius!

You know that very well, and

that's what makes you so proud

If only Banshi Dutt

would understand

if only he'd understand

what a genius I am!

Can you spare some money, dear?

The beard's itching!

For the time being, two annas,

or may be four -

Or may be eight

I'd like to buy a good 7arda

Or why not a whole rupee

You seem to have

got your tuition money

Why don't you take up a job,


It's beneath an artist to

take a job

In just two years, money will

come raining through the roof

Know how much Amir Khan Sahib

makes per concert?

D'you know, Ma, Manashi of

our college, the dark girl,

Her sari had a cowgirl motif

Ma, don't listen to her!

Tomorrow's the college football final

I can't wear these

gunny saris daily

This heiress has been three

years in one class, why more?

I've just got to get spiked

boots by tomorrow!

Can't get two square meals,

he makes demands like a prince

It's hard to feed you

the last 15 days of a month

The first of the month!

Sister must have got paid

You didn't buy your

sandals, did you?

The money went in buying

clothes for Brother

I'll buy them later.

- I've seen someone

After all these years!

Still recognised him

Isn't he Father's

pupil Sanat babu?

Can't you recognise me!

- Aren't you Montu?

Why gape!

You've changed so much

over the years

Why don't you visit us?

You write all those letters

Haven't forgotten the


I give those letters to Neeta

With her tuition and college,

when is she ever home?

Let's go home.

Ma will scold us

Geeta's grown truly lovely

But she can't ever

afford decent clothes

Need some cash to print

the diagrams this month

It's spent this month, Sanat

Can't even buy my kid brother

and sister what little they ask

See, knowing everything,

I still sing you my woes

One feels so powerless.
