Plot summary[ edit ] The childhood romance between neighbours blossoms into passionate love during adolescence. Even then he wanted to send his daughter, who was good at studies to the school. Majeed leaves home after a skirmish with his father, and wanders over distant lands for a long time before returning home. He is grief struck at the loss of love, and this is when Suhra turns up at his home. She is a shadow of her former self. The beautiful, sunshiny, vibrant Suhra of old is now a woman worn out by life, battered hard by a loveless marriage to an abusive husband.

Majeed leaves home once again, but this time with plans on his mind. He needs to find a job, to ward off poverty, and thus he reaches a North Indian city. He finds work as a salesman but one day he meets with a bicycle accident in which he loses a leg. He again sets off on a job quest knocking at every door, wearing off his soles. He finds work as a dish-washer in a hotel. As he scrubs dirty dishes each day, he dreams of Suhra back home waiting for him to return.

He must make enough money to return home and repay debts, before he can finally marry the woman of his life. Literary significance and criticism[ edit ] The first half of the story, dealing with childhood and adolescence is pleasant, delightfully told.

The latter half is grim and filled with sorrow. Yet, it tells about the hope that people living in near poverty have about their future. They accumulate their dreams and keep their most secret sweet desires to themselves and go on with the hard grind of daily life, struggling to eke out a living. The lightness of narrative style disguises an undercurrent of poignancy. Even in the moments of utter grief, the author cannot let go of humour. Intense tragedy is dished out as if it were something meant to make the readers laugh.

The novel talks about love in its truest, sincerest form; yet that very kind of love goes unfulfilled. The lovers have to face harsh reality of life, they have to go through hell, and even worse, separation, but all their sacrifice fetches no rewards. Paul suggests in his foreword to the book, Jeevithathil Ninnum Oru Aedu , it is a page torn from life, bleeding at its edges. While at school, Majeed discovers a new mathematical result, that one plus one must be "a slightly bigger one". Majeed is puzzled when the teacher punishes him for this discovery, for he had seen two rivers merge into a slightly bigger one.

Later when he knocks doors for a job, such skills in mathematics cannot help him find a decent paying situation. Basheer on Balyakalasakhi[ edit ] Basheer said that Majeed of Balyakalasakhi is himself. At the time, he was living in Calcutta. One night, he saw a monster in his sleep. Waking up, he found that he was standing on the edge of the rooftop, a step away from falling. He began writing the book in English. Highly dissatisfied with what he had written, he destroyed it. Later, he rewrote the story from scratch and perfected it through countless revisions.

Basheer was a hard labourer at writing. His simplicity of style is no accident. Almost everything he wrote was reworked and revised innumerable times before they went into press.

Basheer himself wrote the screenplay and dialogues for the film.
