In the seventh year of the new millennium, Animesh Mitra recollects moments from his youth. His college days, his love and his passions. The day of idealism and desperation of agony and ecstasy in the midst of turbulent time, that changed the lives and minds of the youth all over the world.
The city of Calcutta has witnessed political turmoil, clashes of ideologies, state terror and mob violence. Young people were up in arms to reject the repressive semi- colonial system inspired by the student movement in France, war in Vietnam and the ultra-left Maoist revolutionary movement in the late 1960’s.
Animesh reminisces his love for Madhabilata, a classmate in the University. As their love blossomed, the turbulent times took over Animesh’s life. He was drawn to the armed revolution, which was crushed in the matter of few years. He was arrested and sent to jail as an under trail criminal. But Madhabilata’s love remained like a deep-rooted tree. Amidst his agony and frustration, Animesh sees Madhabilata’s love and resilience as a symbol of revolution.
