Short Description Aparajito: A boy leaves home to study in Calcutta, while his mother must face a life alone. The world of Apu: Apu is a jobless ex-student dreaming vaguely of a future as a writer. An old college friend talks him into a visit up-country to a village wedding. This changes his life, for when the bridegroom turns out to be mad, Apus friend asks him to become the husband! After initial revulsion at the idea, Apu agrees. Apu takes his exquisite bride, Aparna, back to Calcutta. But Aparna dies in childbirth, Apu leaves Calcutta, crazy with grief, and his son Kajal is left abandoned with his wifes parents. Only after a long period of total indifference to worldly responsibilities, does Apu become capable of returning to the world. Pather Panchali: Sometime in the early years of the century, a boy, Apu, is born to a poor Brahmin family in a village in Bengal. The father, a poet and priest, cannot earn enough to keep his family going. Apus sister, Durga, is forever stealing guavas from the neighbours orchards. All these add to the daily struggles of the mothers life, notwithstanding her constant bickering with old aunt who lives with the family.
