Shut up, Rizu.

Come with me. Come.

Look at this.

This is you. Rizvan. Who?


- Yes.

And this is the person who

has a stick in his hand.

And he is beating you.

It's bad... beating is bad.

- Yes. It's bad.

Now, this is you again, Rizvan.

And this is the

person who has a lollipop.

And he gives it to you.

Lollipop is sweet.

It's a good thing.

Good boy.

- Good boy.

Now, tell me which one of these is

a Hindu and which one, a Muslim?

Both look alike.


Remember one thing, son.

There are only two kinds

of people in this world.

Good people who do good deeds.

And bad people who do bad.

That's the only

difference in human beings.

There's no other difference.


What did you understand?

Tell me. Tell me.

Good people. Bad people.

No other difference.

Ammi's lesson was not

taught in any school.

Not in my school at least.

Master Wadia lives somewhere here.

Give me the map.

Come fast.

Rizu, what are you doing?

Stop that and come here.

Hang on. Coming.

Hello. I'm Razia. This

is Rizu. I mean Rizvan.

I have heard a lot about you.

That you are a very learned man.

You have a lot of degrees.

B.A., M.A.


But people say you don't do anything.

That's a good thing!

Rizu. My Rizu is a sharp boy.

So, I thought if you agree to

teach him here, in your house

That way, you can pass

your time too, isn't it?

What nonsense!

Mr. Wadia. Mr. Wadia. Trust me.

My Rizu is an intelligent boy.

Rizu... Talk to Mr. Wadia in English.

Speak in English. Come on.

Say something in English.

Wadia. Wadia.

Wadia family is a Parsi

family originally based in Surat.

Launji Narsolaunji Wadia started the

Wadia ship building dynasty in 1736.

When he obtained a contract from

the British East India Company...

...for building docks
