"In some ways, you are correct. But please keep the children in mind. What mistake did they commit? No one can save them if you put pressure on Jaya ma’am for money."
"I told you I don't give a damn!"
"Then please give them a little more time. Also, please do not file the police report right now," pleaded Subha.

"No... No... Sir..." Subha mumbled.
"I guessed so! If you are into something, you should know all the facts. But I know I can’t expect it from girls like you."
"But sir, they are poor children. Please give them some time!"
"Your five minutes have expired. Let's get started with my dictation right away!"
