Pintu: Uncle BG… I'm in deep trouble! BG: Wassup Pintu? Frame 2: (A close-up of Pintu with his eyebrows raised in the middle, making him appear anxious, while he touches the index finger of his right hand to his chin and holds the notepad and pen in his left hand.) Pintu: It's homework…! I've been asked to list out ten things I like about my country! Frame 3: (A close-up of Pintu with eyes closed as he holds the notepad in his left hand and the pen in his right.

Frame 4: (BG is now standing behind Pintu with his left arm resting on Pintu's left shoulder. Pintu’s eyes are open wide with his eyebrows raised high.) BG: Not even one…?
Pintu: Nope! Frame 5: (BG is now resting on a black chair with both his hands under his head and a smile on his face.) BG: Lemme give it a try… Frame 6:

Frame 7: (BG is seated and Pintu stands to his left with the notepad and pen in his hands, looking unsure) Pintu: Isn't it too early to put GST on the list? It's still being finetuned! What's the other? Frame 8: (BG's hands are spread upwards and his mouth is wide open while he continues to be seated.) BG: The… Taj Mahal! Frame 9: (A close-up of Pintu with a wide open mouth and eyes open wide in horror) Pintu: Aw… C'mon Uncle BG… Do you wish that I get deeper into trouble! (Signed Ponnappa, in Frame 8)
