Chotoder Chobi (A Short Story)
Shibu is bed-ridden after an accident during a trapeze act in the circus. When the proprietors of the circus do not offer a suitable compensation to Shibu’s family, Khoka, who is one of Shibu’s juniors in the circus, lends a hand. Shibu’s daughter, Soma, starts to sell cheap anti-insect poisons in the local trains to help her mother during this family crisis. Eventually, Khoka’s kindness brings him closer to Shibu’s family, and he realises that there is a strong bond growing between Soma and himself.
