The comment Anikashta makes is one of increasing relevance, especially in a world where conversation around discrimination and marginalization is gaining more prominence every single day.

A man has arrived at the office of a busy property dealer to look for a house. Their discussion seems to be developing smoothly until the latter asks the former his name. The answer determines his religious identity, and along with it, ushers in stereotypes, bias and prejudice. The short film, thus, becomes an endeavor in invoking the hollowness of it all and the manner in which they come to negatively, and sometimes, adversely affect sincere and dedicated attempts of minorities to throw off the shackles of discrimination in India.
