PREVIEW FOR SCREENING OF THE MARATHI MOVIE 'BANGARWADI'
A young man takes a journey on a cart through a jungle to reach a remote village
called Bangarwadi. He is going there to join as a teacher. Bangarwadi is a village
with many shepherds, some farmers and a few members of a criminal tribe known
as the Ramoshis.
When the young man reaches the place at midday, a well-built shepherd confronts
him. Though at first the young teacher is unnerved, he is at ease immediately
when an old man as strong as the shepherd welcomes him. With the full support
and encouragement of the shepherds of the village, a school comes up.
In the midst of nature and its splendor grow the joys of education and mutual
harmony. But it does not last for long. A dry spell wreaks havoc. And one day
the teacher is recalled by the government and given a new posting.
