  Written by: Muhammad Anwar Andar

Jamil and Frishta are the guests of Lalo Mama and they are waiting in the yard of the castle for Lalo Mama. Lalo Mama comes and welcomes his guests. Jamil introduces his cousin, Freshta to Lalo Mama.

Lalo Mama asks about her education. Frishta is stuttering and says that she is a ninth-grade student. Lalo Mama asks about her stuttering. Jamil says that she always loses her control during talking in the classroom too.

Lalo Mama takes them to the corridor of the castle. Jamil says that some of his classmates learn the lesson well  but when the teacher asks them to explain it, they forget the lesson. Lalo Mama says that these students might face some problems. Frishta asks about the problems. Lalo Mama opens a window for their information.


In the window, Najib seems sad. Tamim asks the reason. Najib says that he failed in the exam and he might leave the school. Tamim asks him that why he was not participating in the discussions in the class.

Najib says that he could learn the lesson, but when the teacher asks him, he forgets everything.

Lalo Mama closes the window.

Frishta says that she has the same problem as Najib had and she has also decided to leave the school.

Lalo Mama says that every problem has a solution and he opens another window about the solution of low morale of some students in the class.


In the window, the reporter of the castle is talking to some students.

Hawa, a resident of Kandahar province says: “I could learn my lesson in the classroom but when my teacher was asking me to explain it in front of the class, my hands were shaking I was not able to explain it. Later, one of my classmates told me that if I take part in the class discussions, I would be able to stand and explain the lesson in front of the class. Then I applied what my classmate asked me and now I could answer any question of the teacher without fear and I could explain the lesson in front of the class.”

Lalo Mama closes the window. Frishta promises that she would also try to learn her lessons and explain them with high morale in front of the class.
