Bittu was thoughtful. Prem asked him, “What are you thinking about?”


He asked, “There might be several people affected by these calamities. Will the plastic, we have, be enough for all of them?”

Prem counter-questioned him, “Do you want to go into social work? Why are you asking these questions? First, complete your education and then think of such things.”

He replied, “I was just curious.”
