Pitamber Chaudhri, headmaster of a school in Madhupur, is asked by his Mumbai
(Bombay)-resident daughter Meera to go the railway station on a particular day
and receive a young, highly qualified engineer who is to work there on a bridge
project. She asks her parents to be nice to him. She has had a talk with him and
if Geeta, Chaudhri's youngest daughter, can win him over, he will make an ideal
husband for her.
