Two Daughters

About

Two stories by the writer most admired by Ray, make up this enchanting film, which marked the centenary of Tagore's birth. 'The Postmaster' is set in a poor, rural village where the new postman strikes up a touching relationship with a child who nurses him through malaria, only to have him leave the area just as she begins to receive the education she desperately wants and, as an orphan, needs. 'The Conclusion' has a university graduate rejecting an arranged marriage only to force one on a girl in his village without understanding that his motives are as selfish and crass as the convention he rejects.
