As Fathers Go

It is the time of the second World War; there is severe food rationing and fuel is scarce. Raghavan is a small-town lawyer with big-time views on the empowerment of women, in particular his daughter, Anandam. He brings his daughter up on his own after his child-bride dies, when his daughter is just two years old. Later, he makes sure that she is educated, and wards off all attempts by the elders of his family to get her married at fifteen years. He teaches her to think for herself and be strong. But Raghavan is also a freedom fighter and is jailed by the British Government for two long years. He continues to cherish her through his long letters. Raghavan makes sure that his daughter has an independent, questioning and fearless mind.
