Arundhati Devi aka Mukherjee’s 2nd feature after the critically acclaimed Chhuti (1967). Megh-o-Roudra tells of a strong young woman in British-ruled 19th C. Bengal. Struggling to affirm her human dignity in her village, she learns to read and write under the tutorship of a stubborn and impetuous law student who constantly challenges the British colonists and is eventually jailed. By the time he is released, the woman has become a prosperous widow. When they meet, she bows courteously to pay homage to the bedraggled man who helped her achieve self-confidence.
