On one side of the river there lived the owner of a factory, Ramen Dutta, with his only son Prabir. Shankar babu used to work in that factory. While working one of his legs was damaged. As a compensation he received a lumpsum amount from the mill and by that money he established an ideal village on the other side of the river. Kalyani and Sutapa helped Shankar in his endeavour. Shankar loved Kalyani but could not marry her due to social reasons. Kalyni was married to Shiben, a factory worker. But Shiben died after their two daughter Sutapa and Binita were born. The misunderstanding between Ramen Ghosh and Shankar started regarding the compensation for Shiben's death. Ramen Dutta disagreed to pay anything to Kalyani. Ramen Dutta's son Prabir was completely opposite in nature. He he loved Sutapa.The quarrel between Shankar and Ramen started when Ramen started charging for ferrying people going to Shankar's colony. After a few days the ferry contractor created problems for the labours. Police arrested all the labours of the colony. Prabir and a secretary of the mill arranged for bail for the labours. Ramen Dutta show- caused Prabir . Prabir said he had done his duty as a secretary of the company. The day for annual running competition arrived. Prabir and Shankar's nephew Ajoy used to join this competition each year. Due to negligence of Ajoy, that year Prabir was heavily injured. Ramen Dutta got very angry. Shankar aroused the mill workers of colony to protest against that sack.Shankar established a hospital for the workers. Ramen Dutta proposed Shankar to buy the mill. Shankar refused the proposal. Ramen was so angry that he arranged to set fire in that colony.But Shankar started again with double energy to rebuild the colony. Prabir got upset against the actions taken by his father. So he came on the other side of the river, leaving this father's house and started to co-operate with Shankar. At last Ramen Dutta had to bow down. He had to came to Prabir on the other side of the river.They created a bridge between both sides.
