"Son of Abish" is a widely popular online variety show, that features hilarious weekly news take downs & celebrity guests who talk & perform for the audience.
Out Of Syllabus is an Animated Series on #SonOfAbish, which speaks about important subjects we as adults need to unlearn and be better at. For the third episode in this series, we tried to plead to everyone who is in a comfortable position, to pay their help, during this pandemic. We wanted to spread awareness amongst people about the plight of most house-helps, who depend on the salaries we pay them at the end of every month. That is their only revenue stream. Times are tough for everyone, and we wanted to get this important conversation going amongst everyone.
