Waarsih is heart wrenching tale about complexity of human relations, going for beyond the #leordous we have demarcated for them. Subhankar Sen, the teacher of St. Peter's school fell for Medha, but never admitted it before her. Neha loved him but waited for his recognition. But unfortunately that came only after he got married to Priti, under the pressure of "the changed circumstances & decided to transfer to Kolkata. Before leaving, he wanted to case things out with Medha, who was trying to distance herself away from him. But things went out of hand when they were sent together to attend a meeting & they had to say in a hotel room for the night. Few months later, Shubhankar came to know that Medha was expecting to have her child & pleaded her to alert it. But she refused to & solemnly declared to bring the child up on her own & never to come to him. Many years later, when Shubhankar is planning to adopt an orphan to console his wife who can never be a mother, he becomes awe struck to see his ex-flame asking him to shelter the boy as she is dying of blood cancer & has nobody to whom she can trust upon the boy's custody. She also requests him to get her child admitted to the well-known missionary school where Shubhankar now teaches. But the boy cannot be admitted without his father's name & the helpless mother reaches Shubhankar's house along with boy, without revealing her true identity. Shubhankar does not take it in good spirit & feel to be the prey at the hands of the destiny. But Priti feels sympathetic for the dying lady & keeps her in their home & nurses her with care. She has also developed a soft corner for the boy. Eventually, from an old group photograph, she comes to know that Priti & Shubhankar were colleagues & confirms from Medha's mouth that the boy is Shubhankar's. The feeling of repentance engulfs Shubhankar & he decides to take the responsibility on his own shoulders. The lady dies before he could confess & redeem his sins. The story upholds the humanity's triumph over our petty selfish interests & the healing power of love & affection to #hedress all wrongs & to care all human sufferings.
