The girl asks Vellu about his plans but he didn't reply . He was starving and therefore the girl offered him some food.
When the sun rose Vellu's feet burned with the glaring of the sun and he was soaked with sweat. His mind reeled over food, and that they stopped before an enormous building which was an auditorium. There was an wedding happening there because the name of the bride and the groom was written outside. The girl asksed Vellu to come inside, and Vellu became nervous by seeing the large crowd. and inquired whether or not to eat here.
The girl lead him towards the backyard of the hall where an enormous garbage bin overflows with rubbish, wherein two goats were fighting over a banana leaf, and then the girl picked up a squashy banana and gave it to Vellu for eating.
Vellu then remembered that the homes within the village appear to be strange as they're made from mud and palm leaves.
The girl Jaya, goes around one of the huts and dumps her sack and picks up an empty one. She then throws a pair of old shoes towards vellu, hands him over a sack as hers and asks him to return together with her .
Vellu may be a little confused by the work he has been assigned with, as he had only worked on a landowner's farm, weeding and grazing cows. puzzled Velu asks if there have been any farms within the city, to which Jaya replies that there are not any farms within the city and that they were rag pickers.
Vellu had never done such a thing and is extremely skeptical about picking rubbish. Jaya then explains Vellu that they're going to only be picking paper, plastics and glass bottles, and Vellu becomes even more confused when he knows that they're to sell these things to Jam Bazaar Jaggu. he enquires Jaya about the person, to which she replies that Jaggu would sell the things to a factory.
Jaya feels that Vellu is wasting time thinking about whether to do the job or not, but Vellu is adamant about doing such a job of picking up garbage.
