The irony, which children have to live with, the obstacles they have to face, are brought out in an intrepid manner. Beginning with malnutrition inadequate food and clothing to seeking admissions in schools and overcrowded classes with no jobs and glaring shortcomings, practically every damaging result of over population is dealt with. The play warns one and all with imminent threat of disaster and destruction if this malady is not immediately arrested. The play ends with thought provoking questions by children, “Why we were brought into this world? Where is our share of sunlight?”
