Mohan Lal was a clerk working in a Govt office. He was very honest and hard working. His boss was very happy with his work. Mohan Lal had two children. A boy and a girl, studying in 11th and 9th class of a Govt. school.The girl, Uma was a very studious and hard working. She always got 1st rank in the class. The boy, Rakesh, was a very playful and mischievous. Even though the brother was older than the sister, she always advised him to mend his habits. But there was no effect on him. His simple, innocent and playful misdeeds turned into anti social activities. He failed twice in class 11th and was rusticated from the school. Now, for company he had ruffians. As the saying goes 'birds of the same flock, fly together', he too befriended boys who were a slur on the society. All advice by the parents and his sister were ignored.
One day he broke all limits of decency. It was the festival of Holi. Uma's friends had come to play holi with her. After they all left, Uma went for her bath. As soon as she closed the door, she heard a loud crying sound of a girl, asking for help. She rushed out side. The scene that she saw was frightening. Her own brother,Rakesh and three other boys were molesting her friend Vanita. The poor helpless girl was screaming for help. Uma was so furious that she pulled her brother and in a fit of fury went on hitting him like mad. Hearing the commotion her parents also came out and were stunned to see the scene. Uma's father immediately dialled 100 and called the police and got his son and his friends arrested............
It was the day of release of Rakesh from the prison. He had been sentenced for four years by the court. In these four years no one from his family went to meet him. Only his sister, Uma went to the prison to receive him after the completion of his term in the prison. When he came out and saw his sister, he burst into tears. She wiped his tears, hugged him and took him home. At home he was surprised to see Vanita dressed as a bride. Uma lead him towards her and said,"Your four years imprisonment is over. Now you are imprisoned for life," and gave his hand in Vanita's hand.
