(Dogs barking, street noise) (Foot steps) Hello…anybody home? Yes? Hello sir, I am from town charity service. We are building a new auditorium for the temple. Appreciate if you can help us out with a donation. Most people did in this street. How much did those people give you? These people? Let me check… They gave us 50 dollars. Is that your truck? No way sir. I can't afford that! This is from Mr. Gallage. (Gallage is a big business man) He let us use his truck for temple. He's whole family is very close to temple. Hang on a minute. Do you have a radio in the temple? No. We don't have a radio. Allright. Take this one then. God bless you sir! Looks like a brand new one too. Yeah, I bought it from overseas. Do you have room in the car? Yes sir. Plenty of room at the back. Take that TV and sound system then. I got a couple of computers inside. Take them too. I don't use them that much. In fact I don't take it with me when I die…do I ? Just come in and take whatever you want. (The Donation) Mate, couple of thousand dollars worth of goods at the back. I'll pick you up from the station in an hour or so. Listen to me mate! What they going to do with all this electronics. Monks don't even use them. They gave up that sort of shit! Take these to black market and we can make a bit of mulla boy. Just listen to me bro. Shit, hang on mate. I got to take a leak. Hang on. Don't worry about it mate. I'll take care of it. Just show up ok! Monks won't even care mate. They are not interested in materials bro. Just listen to me. I got this. You don't get lucky every day bro. God only give you one chance mate. Meet me at the station in an hour and we'll go the market. I'll talk to Mr. Gallage about the truck. You don't worry about it. (Guy talking on the phone) Where's all the furniture gone?!
