As she could not able to find a place to live in Chennai, the woman worked as a building worker and stayed there for his treatment. Suddenly she was disappeared and when I asked the boy where his mother was he said thats he went to their home and also said that he did not ate for three days. I accommodated him in my home and fed him food. After a week his mother returned and told about her problems to which i said that it all will be taken care of and asked her to eat. At that time she asked me which caste I was. And I answered her that I am a scheduled caste. Certainly the woman stopped eating and said that she won’t eat in a Dalit’s home. Then I gave her some money and asked her to eat by herself” explained the director to say how ignorant the society is.
