In a time, when countries like India are developing in a rate faster than previously estimated and are on their way to be superpower; there are some section of society whose lives are never taken into account. Most of the time, they are left behind, uncounted. Here two brothers Mohan, 17 and Suresh, 11; share an usual day with us. Both deprived of elementary education and quality amenities, Mohan along with his brother Suresh took to ragpicking to earn a living with their mother supporting them in this venture. Let's see the world by their eyes in a city full of prosperity and educational well-being...

‘Flirting? Healthy flirting? Really Sanjay . . .’ she rolled her eyes in disgust. ‘That's what you men call
it? There is nothing healthy about flirting, Sanjay, not for a married man.
Healthy flirting is a term introduced by perverted men who want to lend legitimacy to their
extramarital dalliances. Flirting invariably has a sexual connotation to it.’ She got up from her seat
and walked around the room gesticulating and muttering something to herself. Suddenly she
stopped, turned back, looked at Sanjay and asked, ‘Did my husband sleep with her? You are his
friend. Did he ever tell you anything about it?’
