Synopsis : A blind girl lives alone with her father at a cottage in a lonely area. She has no siblings and her mother is dead. After her father leaves for office one day, two young eve-teasers sneak into the courtyard of the cottage and ogle her and whistle at her from outside the windows in the cottage and knock at its main gate with the intention of entering into her house and molesting her. This frightens the girl enormously, but soon the boys flee when a courier boy arrives at the cottage to deliver a letter.
The girl is relieved as the knocking stops. But soon after, when the courier boy knocks at the gate, she mistakes it to be the knock of her teasers and resolves to retaliate. She picks up an iron rod in her house, proceeds to the gate, opens it and hits the courier boy to death.

Every year antardrishti under the name “Drishti”, organise creative contest to promote eye donation in four category (Short Films, Posters, Design, and Audio Jingles).
Antardrishti – a social development organisation is committed to the cause of blind people in our society. Towards this we had made a humble beginning in 2006. It is registered as a Public Charitable Trust under Indian Trust Act, 1882. In our country, after the so long time after Independence still people are suffering from blindness due to lack of proper information and treatment. In similar way the person who becomes blind or losses his eyesight is not able to connect himself with the main stream of society due to lack of proper information and encouragement. Antardrishti stand with #Eye Care, #Eye Donation and Empowerment of #Visually Impaired.
Need of the hour is to raise awareness level of the society towards eye care, eye donation and empowerment of blind people.
