Communication

Director: Methil Komalankutty.
The old man in the family feels that the other members of the family are totally insensitive to his attempts at communicating with them and even to his presence among them. Tasting the bitterness of being marginalized and feeling the pangs of dreary loneliness, he looks around for solace and finds a reflection of himself in the lonely ornamental fish in the aquarium. He tries to fondle the fish. It is only natural that his attempts at fondling the fish are mistaken as the manifestation of an old man’s deranged mind.
