Behind them, an orange wall with a light at its top-right corner, and a gate attached to the wall, are seen partially. Trees appear in the background.) Text: One normal day… as BG walks by a regular Indian road… BG: Excuse me please… Am I near any… um… government office? A thought bubble shows the sighted man thinking: Oh oh… This guy is blind! Frame 2: (A close-up of the sighted man with a moustache looking towards BG, who is on his right. The wall and trees are seen in the background.) Sighted man: Er… which government office are you looking for…? Frame 3: (A close-up of BG with his left hand covering the upper left side of his face. A tree is seen in the background.) BG: I'm not actually looking… no… but I happen to sense that I'm near some government office! Frame 4: (The sighted man is on BG's right, using his right hand to point to the left, while BG still has his left hand covering the upper left side of his face. The wall, and the trees are seen in the background.) Sighted man: Yes! There's a Road Transport Office nearby! BG: No wonder I'm beginning to feel sick! Frame 5: (The sighted man, who is on BG's right, looks wide-eyed towards BG who now places both his hands near his forehead. The wall, and the trees are seen in the background.) Sighted man: Do you need to go to a  government hospital? BG: No! No! That would make matters worse! Frame 6: (The sighted man is still on BG's right, stretching his left hand to BG's shoulder, while BG places his left arm in front of his face, almost covering the top half of it. The wall, and the trees are seen in the background.) Sighted man:
But you said ki… you're feeling sick… bhai! BG: You see… every time I'm like… near any government set up… I feel quite sick! Frame 7: (A close-up of the sighted man with his eyes almost popping out. Some greenery is seen around.) Sighted man: How extraordinary! Have you got yourself checked at a private hospital? Frame 8: (A close-up of BG appearing sick. The wall, and trees are seen in the background.) BG: Yes I have! Those doctors say it's a rare um… medical condition…! Frame 9: (The sighted man appears slightly behind BG, who has a frown on his face. The wall is seen in the background with some greenery above it.) Sighted man: Every time you walk by any… government office? Phew! Uh… what's it called?! Frame 10: (The sighted man has his eyes wide open as he stands slightly behind BG, who appears exasperated.
