Storyboard Text

  • Back in 1978, one of the worst Hindu-Muslim riots was occurring in the city of Hyderabad.
  • What's going on?
  • People are rioting over the nearby temple.
  • During this time is when your grandmother, my wife, went into labor with your mother.
  • People were burning down houses, buses, and cars in the streets. There was chaos everywhere.
  • All the streets were barricaded by burning vehicles. No one could leave the town, and a curfew was put into place.
  • Block the exits!
  • BURN!
  • It was extremely risky to leave the house, especially since we had to leave our six children alone at home.
  • Your grandmother's uncle had political influence in the area. He offered to take us to the hospital, but we'd have to be very vigilant of the surrounding dangers.
  • We need to go to the hospital.
  • How are we going to go? Everything's blocked!
  • I can escort us, but we need to hurry and be very careful.
