Bhakti bhusan and Sarbojaya, his two close friends, share this philosophy of life. But the rhythm is disturbed with the appearance of Anadi chakroborty at Pphool Doongri where the previously mentioned three characters were spending their retired life, Anadi had deserted home with the feeling that his son and daughter-in-law treated his presence in the family as a burden. Now under the leadership of Sarbojaya the four elderly persons started a whirlpool of fan and frivolity the vortex of which touched the problem of old age in a society which stands denuded of the values of joint family system.
