Summary:
The story stands on the crossroads of conflicting values, the old paving way for the new. It revolves around the archetypal character of old and constant Mansur Mian and his obsession for his landau that was handed down to him by his ancestors, and a horse as old as himself. It is at the fag end of his life when Mansur Mian is compelled to come to terms with reality. Sirajul, Mansur's son, advises him to dispose of both the landau and the animal. Utter poverty in the family and a barren market for the landau, precipitate this crisis. Sirajul's intention is to purchase a taxi for earning his livelihood. Shattered, Mansur has to agree to sell his precious landau. The carriage that has carried so many men through his life now carries Mansur on his last ride.
