On this question, he told that when he saw these people walking with children, they felt that these children would grow up with bad memories that our father was beaten by the police on the streets, the elders of our house died on the way. I want to make at least some children’s memories good. I came to Mumbai from Moga when I did not even have a reservation. There was no money. I thought that these people are going home in a worse situation than me.
