The shelter of wings( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in Bengali and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the novel by Prafulla Roy, Charachar (Shelter of the Wings) revolves around the film's protagonist Lakha, who comes from a family of bird catchers. Each day Lakha traps birds and sells them to Shashmal, the local dealer who in turn sells them to wealthy people who live in the city. Unfortunately, before they are sold, many of the birds die. Despite being in desperate need of the money he makes from the birds, Lakha's deep love for them inspires him to let many go free. Frustrated by her husband's lack of ambition and his obsession with the birds, Lakha's wife Sari has an affair with another bird catcher. This beautifully told narrative reveals the connection between humans and the natural world.

Shibnath has given his all for his country, including eleven years in prison. He also gave up part of his sanity for his country, since three of those years were spent in a mental ward.
