“For me it’s an honor to read something written by Rabindranath Tagore. His writings are like anthem to us. In fact there is also a song ‘Vidya ki parasmani’ written by Sri Tagore. Initially I was supposed to recite it but due to time constraint, Vibha Khosla sang this prayer. But I wanted to read something and when they gave me the option, I immediately grabbed it,” says Soha.
 
Since the film deals with the subject of child education and their exploitation for Crime in India, below written verse is most apt to describe their plight.

“bacche bhee insaan hain…
woh badon se zyaada komal aur sacche hain….
jinke chaaron oor banavateepan ki koi diwaar naheen…
unke sanrakshan aur vikas ke liye zaroorat hai…
na sirf unhe school mein shiksha mile…
balkee saath saath ek aisi duniya mile…
jahaan pyaar ho…sneh ho….”

–    Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore
