    Kolkata 71 is a collection of stories depicting the Seventies. The Naxalite activity, starvation of common people, social and political corruption are shown. The first story is about a lower middle-class family staying in a cottage in a slum area.On a rainy night they are forced to leave the cottage & move to another safe shelter. They find many others had already taken shelter before them. The second story is about another middle class family of mother & two mature daughters who were unable to cope with the starvation & poverty and succumbed to prostitution. Their cousin brother Nalinakhya, who lives in Delhi, comes to visit them & meets the hard reality. The third story is of a rural middle class family where the elder son of a family is involved in smuggling rice to the city forsaking his school & education . Many other boys train as regular smugglers but his story takes a turn when he pushes off a person from the train. The fifth story is about the Kolkata's upper class society gossiping and listening to a music concert over drinking cocktails without any exposure to the common people. The death of truth is represented in the death of a youth chased and killed by the police.
