Starting Speech

The country was facing an economic crisis after the arrival of the Corona epidemic.


People were dying everywhere, but was this disease the only reason for killing everyone?


While some people in the country were losing their lives fighting this disease, there were many people like this too.

They might have saved him from this disease, but somewhere poverty killed him.

And these are not any other people, they are the people living between us and you who have fulfilled our every little need.

Who has left their children alone at home for your needs?

But perhaps we have forgotten them by forgetting those things and have left them in their condition.

There are just a few things related to this that we want to explain to you through this small film of ours.



Rich families will live well at home, His daughter (Parul) will talk to her friend (Rohit) over a video call.

Rohit will keep talking suddenly his mother will give a voice and speak- Go Rohit and bring vegetables, The vegetable seller has come, Rohit will hold the call and go to get the vegetables, and then after 10 minutes, he will come back with the vegetables.

Rohit will come back and continue the call and then Parul will say cheap are you guys still buying such stuff, Rohit will say yes we’ve been like this for years.

Parul will say Rohit why don’t you guys buy online. You will get discounts, offers, and even more free PUBG vouchers by taking them online.

Rohit will say that free PUBG vouchers will also be available. then now I will tell my family to take everything online.

Then Parul will say work is there and will cut the call.

Rohit will convince his family to take it online. His father (Mahesh) will scold him but in the end, Rohit convinces everyone and they will buy it all online. (Rohit’s father also owns a shop)


After a few weeks, when the vegetable vendors came, no one would buy anything from them. (everyone is buying online)

The vegetable seller (Ram Babu) talks to the fruit seller (Surili Tai) that his daughter(Imli)) has online exams he has promised her that he will bring her new smartphones but no one has bought anything due to which he cannot buy the phone.

Tai encourages him and tells him to go home.

When he goes home, he (Ram Babu) tells his daughter – forgive me, daughter, I am helpless and I will have to stop your studies.

Imli runs away from there crying and then she cannot bear the fact that now she will have to stop her studies and in depression, she commits suicide.

Imli’s parents go out to find her and then they find Imli’s dead body. When there is noise, a crowd gathers there, and Journalists come there.

Mahesh’s family is watching the news at that time. The reporter (Riya) goes there and asks Imli’s mother how everything happened.

But her mother goes in shock, Surili Tai tells her that since everyone has started making online purchases, the poor have no money to eat.

In such a situation, from where would the poor father of this girl bring the phone for her?

Because of this girl missed the exam and she could not bear it and gave her life.

Hearing this, everyone starts crying and the reporter asks everyone responsible for this.

All this is going on, Mahesh speaks with love to his son which looks like it will happen but Rohit makes fun of him and he leaves from there.

he(Rohit) makes a video call to his friend (Parul) and flirts. Then Parul tells him that our exams are coming for which we need the latest laptop.

Rohit asks the price of the laptop, and Parul says that it is only 80-90 thousand. Rohit says in front of her that my father will buy it for me.

While the family members are having dinner, Rohit comes and at the same time says that he needs a new laptop, and his sister (Pooja) also starts saying that I need a new phone too. (Due to everyone buying online, Mahesh’s shop was not selling anything)

Both siblings start fighting, Mahesh scolds them and sends them to the room.

Mahesh talks to his wife (Shalu) about this. Shalu tells him, don’t worry, everything will be fine.

Mahesh goes out of the house saying that he is going for a walk.

Does Mahesh think about where to get the laptop? But if he is not able to bring the laptop, then his son will also kill himself like Imli.

Mahesh speaks to himself – (no, I can not let this happen, I would give my life better than watching my children die, Rohit will be able to complete his studies with the money that will come from my insurance).

Before dying, Mahesh writes a letter and hangs himself. In the morning, when Pooja comes to the room to sweep, she sees Mahesh hanging from the fan.

Pooja shouts “Mummy mummy” When Shalu comes, when she sees this, she faints and then Rohit is so shocked when he sees his father.

Rohit cries holding Papa’s feet and then he gets that letter.

It is written in that letter – (Son, I am not a coward, I am just a father who is making a small sacrifice for the happiness of his children the money that will come from my insurance, you should do your studies and become a big man and always buy goods from your small shopkeepers Otherwise, there will be someone else’s father instead of your father, take care of your mother and sister).

Rohit feels very sorry and requests everyone to buy goods from all the small shopkeepers.

(The End)
