The very next moment I was seen praising the uncle,
Yeh bahot mast hai chacha. Kisne yahaan lagaya?

My daughter glued it. She studies at a government school and is in 9th grade. A couple of days ago, she came here and informed me that Narendra Modi launched a campaign called Clean India. Her class teacher encouraged everyone to participate in the drive plus suggested ways like to reduce Plastic usage in everyday life to make a cleaner India.

This film was shot on 5th October in Nadiad. Flat 3 days after the government launched the movement on 2nd October, Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti.

Yes, I bought the apples and stuffed them in my laptop bag. No polythenes.
