Dhh is a heartwarming story of 3 friends (Gungun, Bajrang & Vakil) and their journey towards realising their true potential.

An afternoon of sauntering leads them to a magic show and leaves them awestruck. Magic, it seems is a solution for all their problems including mathematics ! (and Gungun's grandfathers ill health.)

The boys write to the Magician asking him for a trick to ace their examinations. Days go by and times get tougher with punishments at school and warnings at home.

All hope is lost, but one fine day the Magician replies! His letter arrives with a parcel that claims to hold the key to cracking their examinations.

Can this be true? In pursuit of learning from magic Gungun and his friends soon realise, that there is a lot more learning to be done from life itself.

This programming is sponsored by Parish Episcopal School.
