His father introduced him to all the people and Rajesh couldn't wait anymore to play outside, Rajesh went out. He saw many kids sitting but nobody playing and also saw their faces were dull and they didn't have energy. He wondered about this...he went near the lake and saw it was very dirty, he didn't know the reason for this and followed the flow of water and saw the chemicals from the factory were being dumped into this and also the huge chimney kind of things were giving out smoke which was black like coal and would even make the blue sky, black in no time...He smelled the air foul and also found it difficult to breathe but he didn't bother and kept playing on his own.


It was lunchtime and his father ate with one of his clients and Rajesh sat on the open playground and ate the packed lunch...he then again continued playing, he saw a door where many kids were seated and heard loud noise he didn't understand, what was it? It was evening his father came back to pick him, but he saw Rajesh was dull and unhappy. He didn't understand why. They stopped at a signal but suddenly, Rajesh started finding difficult to breathe and fell unconscious His father was tensed and rushed to a hospital, where the doctor said he breathed polluted air and also his stomach has an infection because of some chemical reaction


His father didn't understand and when Rajesh came back to conscious hugged him and said I don't know what had happened to you?, Rajesh said "I know papa" his father was surprised and asked why?, he said "The air near your chemical factory has become dangerous to breathe because you are leaving the dangerous chemical out in the air which is polluting it. Not just that you are polluting the water and also there are dangerous waves which you use in manufacturing. I had eaten my lunch there which got affected due to all this and hence I wasn't feeling well. Papa, I want you to reduce all these things, the kids there were so lethargic and dull, were as they must be active. Not just that many people are getting affected due to your factory"


His father was shocked and was feeling sad and then he realized his mistake and shifted his factory to a place where people were less and also didn't pollute the lakes and he offered his workers masks and all other benefits.
