Indian society is often accused of being the sons and daughters preferred sitting idle in society. FEES is a story of Indian family’s craving for a boy child when the girl is being neglected. Father doesn’t even bother to pay her school fees and sinking himself into liquor. At the same time wife is unable to help her as she itself is a dependent.
India is a country of religions. But it’s sad, that instead of helped, people scared of getting cursed. School teacher is the only person who understand it all but still couldn’t justify if written slogans on the walls are enough to change the mentality.
