Peddler asks him if he has phone numbers of his relatives in his school bag.  Ajmal replies, no. peddler says that the problem is not having any relatives’ phone numbers.

Ajmal asks the reason. Peddler brings out the magic mirror from his bag.

In the mirror, Ajmal sees that when a schoolboy is crossing the road, a speedy car comes and hits the boy. Many people gather around him but no one knows him. Meanwhile, an ambulance comes and takes the boy to the hospital.

The boy’s father comes to the hospital and asks about the health of his son. The doctor replies that he is better. The boy’s father asks how he found his phone number. The doctor replies that when the boy regained consciousness, he gave the phone numbers.

When the boy recovers, his father asks him where he found his phone numbers. The boy replies that his mother gave it and adds that she asked him to keep it in his schoolbag and his teacher also asked them to keep one of relative's phone numbers in our school bag.

The peddler closes the mirror.

Ajmal promises that he would also keep the phone number of one of his family members in his bag. Meanwhile, one of Ajmal’s neighbors saw Ajmal and asks him why he has not gone to his home yet. Ajmal shares the issue with him and he takes Ajmal to his home. Peddler goes to the next lane.
