The girl spots a hawker selling colorful flags, wheels etc. She gestures her father that she needs it. The girl looks very happy. Her gaze shifts to the noise of car honking. At a distance, she sees a traffic cop taking bribe.
Busy day. Parents, teachers and students flocking in and around. We can see the lack of sanitation around the school.
Parents dropping their kids at the backstage. A teacher spots the girl. We see the teacher asking her about her dress. we see the conversation in gestures.
Kids are dressed up as iconic national characters. there are badges on their outfits. The girl is made to wear a Tiara. She is handed over a flag.
The girl is then asked to take her position in front of the microphone. Wearing a tainted saree, with dirt and stains. She folds her hands in a greeting. Looks ahead and is made to say her dialogue on Mother India.
