Dasharath is a skeleton collector. He digs it out, cleans and bleaches it and brings it to the supplier. He believes that skeleton is the final and finest outcome of humanh life. Everything - skin, muscle, blood - decays; only the skeleton survives. He has one regret, he never finds a perfect skeleton. All skeletons have fractured bones somewhere. Dasharath is a happy man. He offered pinda (post-death offering) to his deceased father. His son Ram will do the same when he dies. Listen to this story by Mahasweta Debi (January 14, 1926 – July 28, 2016) to know if Dasharath's hopes are fulfilled.
