(No reply from the other side received. Now he started clapping, whistling, stamping. He did all efforts to have attention of that figure, but in vain, now he throw small stone towards it)

Why didn't you listen to me (he shouted). What the hell is going on? Let us live our life.

System: What's the matter? We are here for you. Why are you doing all this nonsense.

Common man: "What the nonsense I did? Don't I have to fight my rights. Our constitution has given me the rights to ask for my right?


System : Which rights you are talking about? We have provided you food, Clothes , housing,water etc through various Government schemes. Don't you have it.

Common man : How could I get it?, your system does not give a chance to reach it to the common man. 

System: But, We have the records?

Common man : In this corrupted sytem, everything is possible . (System has no answer).Everyone is sold in this system.

System: Don't speak against the Government or system. You will be sent behind the bar.


Common man: Why are you scaring me. You can only do that and not anything for    service to public.

Common man: Good question? We common men obeyed according to Government protocol. But what about the money?  How long we began wearing    masks and applauding the kind professionals and workers.This      candle lighting and stamping plate will keep corona away, but how                    can you put money in our pocket.

System: We are working on it. Okay.
