Synopsis :

"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words - and never stops - at all..." ~ Emily Dickinson.

Four years of hope…. Four years of waiting in vain.
Ammi, still waits for her son to walk through the doors; she will never lose hope.
This is one woman's fight for justice to be seen.

Battered by the police, having been told by the myriad government agencies, investigating her son's disappearance, that there was nothing to be found, no evidence to suggest anyone in particular was involved, she still stands with conviction.

Since Najeeb went missing on 15, October 2016 from the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus, New Delhi, there has been no progress in the investigations of the various agencies investigating the disappearance.

The agencies' initial suspects, the ABVP - a right wing youth organisation were the initial prime suspects in his disappearance. But it seems that it is just as easy as that to make someone disappear when the perpetrators are the youth wing of a right wing organisation in the time of a right wing government.
