520 |aShown at eight international film festivals, Ajit is a close-up view of an eight year old boy who works as a domestic in a middle class Calcutta household. It brings home to the viewer the realities of childhood among the impoverished in underdeveloped countries. Good looking and affable, Ajit captures the viewers hearts. He is shown at his endless daily tasks -- sweeping, cleaning, laundry, caring for his employer s children. There is no time for school in his life. Yet, surprisingly, Ajit feels fortunate, for in this household he is given ample food as his wages. In the countryside where he was one of nine children, he was often hungry. Beautifully filmed by a rising young Indian filmmaker, Ajit makes its social statement with quiet charm.
