Bimal was a professional driver and had a vintage, pre-historic shaped taxi- named Jagaddal. He drove his car in hill side and remote village. It was his life and he never allowed anybody around it. People asked him many times to buy a new one but he refused as it was his only friend. One day Bimal gave a lift to a newly married couple to a bungalow. The bride drew his attention. Soon Bimal came to know that she had escaped from her home with another. However the new guy also rejected her. Bimal got pity on the lady and he took her to the station and bought her a ticket. As she left Bimal kicked his car in frustration and the car was damaged. Bimal promised to repair it and give it a new life. But the car did not move a bit. Out of frustration, he broke its glass window. Damaged Jagaddal drew the attraction of an iron businessman. He offered money for it, depressed Bimal sold the parts and bid farewell to it. A truth of life emerged…
