Alif Noon was not only just an entertainment program but it was a concept that was pointing problems in this society at an earl stage (1960's). After 50 years these problems should have been cured but if we see the society, we still have these problems, schools and institutions setup as a private businesses. Educating young minds feeding chickens to make them fat instead of making them strong. Then comes the private clinics opened by quacks handling patients like first year student dissects a frog on his lab table. The business of beggary that has evolved into organizations and institutions for the new comers compelled due to joblessness, a bum at busy intersection can tell you proudly; he can earn more than a govt clerk."This young man came to me and said he wanted to be an actor but everyone has treated him with ridicule. 'Now if you also let me down I will be fed up of life itself,' he said to me. I sent him away but as I lied down for sleep that night the idea of a play came to my mind. This young man had an innocent face and if I could build up two characters, one of them a clever con man and the other an innocent stooge he would fit into it." The rest is history.
