He says, “I would often be amazed by the glaring advertisements of shiny expensive Luxury cars on TV and billboards on the highway and on the other side of the road I see Matto, a simple labourer struggling to buy a new bicycle just so he could get to his workplace on time! He lives his life dreaming that things will change. This is what compels me to tell the story of Matto… A story of Hope.”
