Sometimes I pause to ponder upon

the peculiar world of daughters,

from homes they're born into,

reared and raised,

their ties they'll uproot, to

transplant themselves elsewhere

To a home she belongs, she will

estrange herself and..

make a stranger's home, her own

The little buds, before our eyes,

will blossom into mothers of mankind

Any daughter's father, be it some

rich man in faraway lands,

or some trader of fruit.. Iike

myself here in Madhupur,

all face similar fate

Raising so lovingly, our daughter,

so beloved..

blessing her every growing

moment and then one day..

..sending her away, forever

All said and done..

daughters will always be daughters,

like my Poonam

I nicknamed her..


She's the only child of my late

brother. My brother and his wife died,

this unique gift, they left to me

Poonam grew up with

my daughter Chhoti

The girls loved each other,

more like siblings

But my wife Rama, she never

took kindly to Poonam,

because in appearance, Poonam

is prettier than Chhoti

In Rama, Poonam always

sought a mother..

but the motherless child would

never find a mother's love

I took Poonam under my wing

Mr Accountant, let her finish

counting, put it right back!

All it took..

was only one loving glance

to make her laugh

And my poems,

she would sing along

We recorded our songs on tape

For the little bridegroom,

and his lovely bride..

a pretty palanquin

is waiting outside

A pretty palanquin,

waiting outside

But my little girl's

always little to me..

..never old enough to marry, you see

She isn't old enough

to marry, you see

She's my bride, I'm

taking her! He says

She's my bride,

I'm taking her now,

Dauntless bridegroom

has sworn a vow

Now it's the daughter's turn to say,

Daddy, why are you in a

hurry to send me away?

So what did the daughter

have to say?

Daddy, why are you sending me away?

With so much love.. a daughter

cares for her parents..

..her siblings, everyone

How dismal are some thoughts of men

who think daughters are burdensome

Both my daughters have come of age..

..and it's time to think

of Poonam's wedding

Relax! You're in the

world's narrowest lane,

and in the middle of the world's

slowest wedding procession. See you..

The world's dullest

rocket, dull-est!

Radhey - Radhey (blessed be

the name of Holy Radha)

Mr Accountant, Radhey Radhey

Radhey Radhey.. Oh.. is

that you, Mr Bhagat?

It's been.. years!

Is Mr Krishnakant at home?

- Yes, welcome

Madhupur remains untouched,

it's just the way I left it,

the same narrow lanes and slow

wedding processions and..

pervasive fear, of shooting rockets.

- So true



Mr Bhagat is here

Mr Bhagat..!

Bhagat, why did you

take the trouble.. call and I would've

been in Delhi

When you and your wife can travel to

Delhi to place orders for jewelry,

then why can't I come to Madhupur

to deliver them?

Of course.. thank you

When I lived here, amongst you folks,

the time of our lives we had..

you should remind him more often

Sister-in-law, how's the knee?


A look at the design of these

bangles will heal it

And I know, you've a

keen eye for jewelry

Over years, bit by bit,

jewelry must be bought..

..for the day when daughters marry

Giving daughters away in marriage,

is said to be the most sacred act

When a father sees his daughter

standing before him..

..resplendent in bridal finery,

there is a sense of fulfillment


Bless you

Krishnakant, isn't she

Poonam, your Bitto?

Well, you've made her out, you

saw her when she was so little

It was intuition..
