but they will not work for Sandeep. He

series of skirmishes with Sandeep.
In this situation arrives an invitation
to a football match with Sandeep accepts
as a matter of course. He is discouraged
by all the other teachers and is told
of their 12 nil beating at the last tournament
but he goes ahead with the preparations
for the match. Raghu and his friends however,
stay away and refuse to co-operate and
Meanwhile his relationship with Anuradha

The match is played and lost again by
12 goals. The victors gloat. Humiliated
and desparied, Sandeep demands a return
match which is rejected at first but Anuradha
manages to get it fixed up.
Everybody, including the Principal objects
to the rematch but Sandeep stands firm
and encourages his team to practise harder.
A chance rescue of some of the students
from goondas helps him win the co-operation
and these boys who have been Raghu's pals
begin participating with the team. Finding
himself left alone, Raghu becomes desperate
and turns violent. Sandeep, however shows
tremendous understanding and finally Raghu
too is won over.
The boys put their heart into the game
and continue to practice, undeterred by
the problems which keeps cropping up.
And finally when the match is played,
Sandeep and his team win as Raghu leads
them to victory.
This victory acts as a spark that rekindles
enthusiasm for sports in the school. And
Sandeep can return to Bombay and devote
his time to Computer Engineering. There
are, however, other loose ends and knots
to tie and he shall return yet again..
