Life In Other Words  Bangladesh / 2017 / 16 mins

Not a regular day for the Kabir family. Ronny has failed his class and has to repeat another year. Kabir Shaheb wishes the sun wouldn't rise so he can avoid all possible human interaction. Ronny, the apple of his eye, has put the family to shame and Kabir Shaheb feels he can never hold his head up high in society.

Reenu, his daughter has had enough with her company. She has threatened to quit because the promise of a much deserved pay rise hasn't materialised. To make matters worse and to make life miserable are the unending sweaty bus rides plus the lecherous men harassing her everyday. It's almost the end of the month and Ronny's mother has to be creative about her cooking, considering she has limited resources. She's making egg curry and khichuri (lentils and rice) for the family. High in calories, low in cost, but leaves the family feeling gastronomically satisfied. Ronny'r Ma understands that food comes first. They can all talk about their problems but only once they've had something to eat. While everyone is having a miserable day, Bangladesh is playing a dream final with the game reaching a nail biting last over.
