After the partition, the family of a teacher Madhav Chandra Sen was forced to relocate from East Pakistan to Kolkata as refugees. They were poverty stricken and had to struggle a lot to survive in Kolkata. Even in this grim situation Madhav Chandra Sen never gave up on his values and principles. Even though he spoke of such idealistic things, out of his four children only his eldest daughter named Neeta followed his values and principles. She was intelligent and hardworking.
Out of his students Madhav babu talked about Sanath and loved him the most because he was a good student. Neeta and Sanath started loving each other and entered into a relationship. Neeta was the breadwinner of the family. Her mother Kadambini was completely dependent on Neeta. Neeta’s brother Shankar was only interested in music and not concerned about the family. Shankar thought that his music in due time will make him very rich. Her younger sister was not interested in helping the family but was extremely demanding and only cared about her looks. She liked to travel and meet new people. Since they are very poor she was unable to go out of the house and hence never missed a chance to complain about it. Neeta’s younger brother Montu liked to play football and believed that being good at playing football would help him to find work. Neetas’s dream was to marry Sanath and lead a happy married life with him. But suddenly her life turns upside down when Sanath leaves her and marries her younger sister Geeta because of her looks. Neeta was shattered. Neeta liked the mountains and felt that living in the plains suffocated her. She did go to the mountains only to be admitted to an asylum. Neeta had told her brother that she wanted to live. Will Neeta be able to survive? Who will stand by her in this grim situation?
