Mukesh claimed that constructing a rest room inside house was in opposition to neighborhood custom. He requested the household to dismantle the john and transfer out of the locality.
The neighborhood head even received them boycotted and their neighbours stopped interacting to them following the diktat.
Sitaram, a person of progressive mindset, earns his livlihood by working as labourer. His three daughters and son are pursuing greater research. The household is hassled nowadays as nobody within the space talks to them.
