They dealt with the issue of children being forced to work in inappropriate conditions and not enjoying their freedom and dignity in our society. They also demonstrated how social websites can be a reason of disaster. The students acted naturally, meticulously and perfectly. It was a visual bliss to watch the students perform on the stage confidently with appropriate props and their efforts & hard work was pleasantly evident.
