The Focus on Children as a Part of India’s Future

A video about India Shining that I posted earlier this week is centered around a young boy. A very insightful comment on the post suggested that children play a great deal in these campaigns because they are the future of India. Therefore, I think that it is interesting that Firaaq ended with the image of the little boy, Mohsin. A major difference between the final scene of the movie and the India Shining video is that Mohsin, a muslim, faces a difficult and uncertain future whereas the child in the India Shining video was depicted as paving the way for success. Perhaps, the close up of Mohsin in Firaaq is intended to represent the struggle that the country of India continues to face. The presence of children, especially young male children, seems to be more than a coincidence. Thoughts?
