The boy whose financial situation was not so good, due to which he left his studies and started to find a job for which he decided to move to city. He found a job of cleaning tables and picking uncleaned utensils, just to have 2 meals for his survival. His boss often scolded him for improper work. He started his life sleeping on floor and in few days, he learnt making good tea because of which he started his own tea shop with the help of his father and brother in small slum area K.K.
