Hey… Uncle BG! Frame 2: (The sighted nephew – Pintu – standing to the right of the visually impaired man – BG – as he sits at a table reading from a book) Pintu: Braille's not like an 'in-your-face' book! You don't look into it as you read! Cool! Frame 3: (Pintu peeping from behind BG's shoulder while BG is seated at a table reading a book) Pintu: And anyone looking over your shoulder'll never know what you're reading! Awesome! Frame 4: (Pintu speaking) Pintu: Your fingers can read…! Hey… you can read in the dark! Frame 5: (Pintu sitting to the right of BG wondering) Pintu: How do you say 'Hello' in Braille, Uncle BG? BG: Braille's not a language! It's a script, Pintu! Frame 6: (Pintu sitting to the right of BG wondering) Pintu: What's 'script'? BG: It's cursive. Do you not 'write' with your hand in school? Frame 7: (Pintu seemingly confused as he sits to the right of BG) Pintu: We only text with our hands! What is 'write'? BG: The kids these days! (Signed Ponnappa, in Frame 6)
