Written by: Najia Nijat

Nawab and his sister, Samira go to the castle and find Lalo Mama. Samira sees a new building near to the castle and says to Nawab that when they came last time to the castle, this building was not built. Nawan confirms. Meanwhile, Lalo Mama comes and after greeting, he takes them inside the castle and their Lalo Mama asks Nawab that what they were talking about.

Nawab replies that they were talking about the new building. Lalo Mama replies that this building is constructed in a month.

 Samira asks that how it is possible to construct a building in a month. 

Lalo Mama replies that he knows about a building that was built just in a day.

Samira wants information about that building.

Lalo Mama opens a window.


In the window, Ilham and his sister, Hameda are watching television. A spokesman is talking about a building that is built over a day. The spokesman says, “A Chinese manufacturing company BROAD group has built a ten-story apartment building in just over a day.

The company, which has been developing factory-made steel buildings since 2009, unveiled a video that shows the building process which resembles that of building cars: streamlined production, high quality, and low cost. The structure was erected in 28 hours and 45 minutes.

To achieve this, the BROAD group uses the technology of prefabricated construction systems where self-contained modular units built in advance are assembled. The modules feature a standard container size that meets the requirements of a 40ft high cube container which can be transported worldwide. Installation is extremely easy and can be done onsite by just tightening bolts and connecting water and electricity.”

Lalo Mama closes the window.

Nawab is thirsty and when he wants to take a glass of water from the table, suddenly he cries. Lalo Mama and Samira ask about the cause.

Nawab replies that his foot went numb and he could not walk.

Samira asks about the cause of numbness of hands and feet. Lalo Mama takes them to the doctor of the castle and there he asks about the cause numbness of hands and feet.

The doctor says, “A person may feel numbness in his/her legs and feet due to sitting in a position that puts too much pressure on the nerves or reduces blood flow. Long-term numbness or a tingling feeling in the legs and feet may be due to conditions like multiple sclerosis, diabetes and peripheral artery diseases. The sensation may be felt in the whole leg, below the knee, or in different areas of the foot.”

Lalo Mama, Nawab, and Samira thank the doctor for the information.

Samira wants Lalo Mama to open a window of the listeners of the programs. Lalo Mama opens the following window.


In the window, a girl tells a poem about the mother. Samira and Nawab like the poem and Lalo Mama closes this window too.
