When the British were ruling India, the workers did not have any holiday. They had to all the days of the weekend. But, British used to take leave on Sundays and go to church.

The workers in the British empire endlessly need to work for the sake of Britishers. Among those workers, Narayan is one of the workers and the leader. Narayan thought that when he would get a chance to get a solution. He got a proposal for a holiday in front of the British army. The british did not accept the Narayan proposal.
