Apu Nahasapeemapetilon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (984 words)
Apu and Manjula have a mostly happy marriage, despite understandable marital problems caused by Apu's workaholic nature (he seems to be at his post around the clock), the strain of caring for eight children, and two instances of infidelity by Apu.
When Apu's and Manjula's parents were first arranging their marriage, Apu was shown as the oldest of 3 on a chart.
Apu is known as a legend in the realm of Kwik-E-Mart employment for working for over 96 hours in one shift.
AboutFilm.Com World of Apu, The (1959) (1061 words)
Apu doesn't have a job or a family, and his landlord, who has been very understanding in allowing him to be three months late with the rent, can hold out no longer.
Apu thinks he has the makings of a decent novel on his hands and that working as a clerk is beneath him, but his friend Pulu (Alok Chakravarty) chastises him and tells him that he still lacks the life experience to know what he's writing about.
Aparna assuages Apu's worries that he cannot financially support her when she confides to him that she'd be happy if he quit the job he does have, because it would mean he would be home more often.
