12 years old Hamza touched by the play and felt the character “Kamal” inside him as we also want to get education but due to his father’s traditional mindset he wasn’t able to pursue his dreams. As he said “I get my father with me to watch this play because I knew this play will change his mind as it touched me also. When my father watched this performance, he did not say any single word and went home. I was scared that he will surely be angry on me but eventually this play touched him too and he said you will also get education like Kamal (character) did”
