"The fourth year after Mukesh's death has just started," Mangesh says. He talks at length about the brother who had been sent off to Aurangabad to study — he subsequently started working there — and was to have been the family's succour from poverty. Why didn't they ask for money for the pictures? "What's the point of the money when I have lost my brother?" Mangesh snaps, before his father pitches in. "We do not want money but I want his company to give his job to my younger son. Can you help?" Shankar Rao asks hopefully.
