Mukesh’s attitude towards his situation is different from that of Saheb because, unlike Saheb, Mukesh is ambitious. Mukesh has his roots in Firozabad. He is born into a family of bangle makers and must follow in his father’s footsteps for now. However, he wants to break the family tradition and become a motor mechanic. Saheb, on the other hand, is a rootless migrant from Bangladesh who is content being a ragpicker at Seemapuri. Although he fancies the idea of going to school, he starts working at a tea stall because the salary is good. Mukesh too is greatly unhappy about his prevailing poverty. However, he is determined to change it. He is ready to walk a long distance every day to a garage and train to become a motor mechanic.
