During this period, Musthafa’s math teacher, Mathew Sir, observed his absence from the classroom. He went to the farm, where Musthafa was working with his father. Both Uppa and his math teacher tried to persuade him, but he refused to listen. Furthermore, his Math teacher, Mathew Sir, asked a question that completely changed his life.

What question changed his life?
