Zamindar Nagen Dutta was coming back to Calcutta by boat. Due to heavy storm he had to get off and take shelter in somebody's house. He entered a nearby village. He got shelter in a dilapidated house but unfortunately the owner of the house died that night. No body of that village assured any shelter to his daughter, Kunda. She had no uncle in Calcutta. So every body requested Nagendra to reach Kunda at that place. Nagendra first came to his sister Kamalamani's house with Kunda and he informed everything to his wife. His wife Suryamukhi requested him to bring her in their place. After finishing his work in Calcutta he reached his house with Kunda. Then he arranged marriage of Kunda with Tarakcharan, son of Suryamukhi's nurse. Tarakcharan was going wayward in association with neighbour zamindar Debendra Dutta. Inspite of Kunda's unwillingness Tarakcharan invited Debendra Dutta and other friends to show them his wife. Debendra was charmed seeing Kunda. After three years Tarakcharan died and Kunda became a widow. Then Suryamukhi brings Kunda to their house. That time Nagendra Dutta was impressed by Kunda's beauty. Knowing Nagendra's attachment with Kunda, Suryamukhi summoned Kamalamani. Debendra also could not forget Kunda. So one day he came in a disguise of a beggar. So she sent her maid Meera to enquire about that beggar, when she came to know that the beggar was actually Debendra, she rebuked Kunda. Kunda left their home. But Heera gave her shelter. One night Debendra came to Heera's house. She decided to leave the village. But her last wish was to meet Nagendra once. But she met Suryamukhi there. That time Suryamukhi did not refuse her. She gave her consent to Nagendra to marry Kunda. But she left the house in the marriage night. Nagendra realised the value of Suryamukhi after losing her . He decided to to bring her back. One night he was sleeping in Suryamukhi's room when he suddenly felt that some one has come, he thought that it might be Suryamukhi. And it was Suryamukhi, who came back. Every body was happy after the return of Suryamukhi, but suddenly the news came that Kunda has consumed poison. Every body rushed to her room, but it was too late. Kunda was already dead before they could reach the room.
