Beyond the Boundaries
Ajoy was searching for an ideology to find the meaning of life, but Sabitri kept the ideals aside to keep her family survive through economic constraints, while a section of Bengalis of the northeast India had lost connections with their ancestral land due to country’s partition in 1947. The former generation had their old doctrines of faith, based on caste and creed, and unlike them, Ajoy, the next generation youth, developed his faith in Marxism to live for a cause, while Sabitri’s living without choice compelled her to leave aside the age-old social values and customs. Both of them had to confront the fast changing social scenario surcharged with communal antagonism due to political upsurge of religious fundamentalism. With the conflicts and contradictions, they had to straddle through a relentless journey of life beyond the boundaries to find new horizons of romance and aspirations.
