He is doing his best to convey a powerful message through this short story. The story is about a child who works in a tea stall and a very fine morning, he sees a boy going to school. He stops, and the story starts..

Wasim, a little boy.

Wasim, a little boy.

One fine morning, Wasim is returning from his work. He is happy and chirping around. Although, he gets nothing, you can see the happiness on his face.

A boy with his mother, going to school.

When Wasim sees this boy going to school, he stops there.

His glance says it all.

His glance says it all.

He has dreams in his eyes, some goals, but because of poverty, he is pushed to work.
Also, poor conditions have made him tough; you can see it from his language.

He has to face allegations daily.

When he is late, his employer scolds him asking why is he late? "Don't you need to sell tea? Come inside immediately and serve this customer.", says the employer. He quickly, without a second thought, comes inside and starts preparing tea.

Afterwards, a kind young man comes in.

Afterwards, a kind young man comes in.

He asks Wasim, "Do you study?" Wasim replied, "I don't have money to study, and I have to do this job for a living." So, out of kindness, he gives him 100 rupees. Wasim stares at him for a while and asks him who will give me next Rs.100 to continue the studies? And, Rs.1000 later?

His employee sees him keeping that money.

He starts beating him because he has a doubt that Wasim has stolen money. That poor soul keeps on telling that he didn't steal his money. So, the owner checks his box to find his money and without even apologizing, he tells Wasim to get back to work.

Afterwards a local gang comes in for penalty of Rs.100.

His employer tells him to give this gang Rs.5, but the gang leader keeps on pushing him to give Rs.100. When they start beating the tea vendor, the young boy comes in between, trying to stop them and when they didn't stop, he finally handles them with Rs.100, which was given by that man for the books.

Wasim's deed melts his heart. 

Wasim's deed melts his heart. 

He asks Wasim why did he give them his money. And his reply, "They were beating you, you won't be able to face them alone. So, I gave them my money" changes him completely.
Later, his employer tells him that you are going school from tomorrow, I am going to take care of your expenses.

Question is - why do we need reasons?

Question is - why do we need reasons?

This little boy, Wasim's deed, opens his eye; the question is - why do we need reasons to make things possible or why we need some leader. It's everyone's job.
And, just imagine what if we all participate in the development of the society?
I guess the whole picture will change, and every child can make his/her dream come true. So, are you in with Nayan Malek?
