Muska and her brother, Baheer go to the castle to visit Lalo Mama. Muska asks Baheer if he bought a pen for her. Baheer replies no because there was no salesman in the shop. Muska asks the how could it possible. Meanwhile, Lalo Mama comes and after welcoming, he says that there is a store without a salesman. Muska asks about that store. Lalo Mama takes them inside the castle and there he opens a window for his guests’ information.


In the window, the reporter of the castle talks about a store, “A red wooden container, about the size of a mobile home, has offered a lifeline. It's a mini supermarket that locals can access round-the-clock. This store in Sweden has no salesman. Instead, locals download a mobile app that opens the store door and allows them to scan products, paying for them online. The store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

Lalo Mama closes the window.

 Muska likes the information and promises that she would share it with her friends. Meanwhile, she sees that Baheer is busy with a mobile phone. Muska asks him about his business. Baheer replies that he is seeing pictures on Lalo Mama’s mobile phone.

Lalo blames him for checking others’ mobile phones without their permission and adds this issue might cause some problems too.

Baheer asks about the problems. Lalo Mama opens another window.


In the window, the reporter of the castle says that most juveniles have mobile phones and some of them take their friends’ mobile phones and sometimes they copy the numbers and send pictures without the permission of the owner of the mobile and this might cause some problem.

The reporter talks to some boys and girls about this issue.

Muhibullah, a resident of Laghman province says, “Once a boy who copies songs to the customers’ mobile phones, had copied some private pictures of his customer’s mobile phone to his own phone and when the owner of the mobile phone got aware of the issue, he deadly bet that boy.”

Bashir Ahmad, a resident of Qarabagh district, Kabul province says, “One of my friends had taken the mobile of his friend and had deleted all numbers and other documents from the mobile phone. A quarrel had been taken place between them.”

Lalo Mama closes the window. Baheer asks that how they could keep their mobile phones safe. Lalo Mama replies that by adding a password to the mobile phone.

Baheer says sorry to Lalo Mama for using his phone without his permission.
