Put a few children together to be themselves Lo! They create a wonderful world of their own deriving immense pleasure in PLAYING - and 'learning' through it sub-consciously Playing in open space is quite different from playing within the four walls of home Open space provides greater scope for interaction, experimentation and learning besides multiplying the thrill of playing There lies the imperative need for playgrounds But where are the playgrounds! Thanks to the indiscriminate growth of concrete jungles of ever-growing cities, there is hardly any open space, let alone proper playgrounds - particularly in the localities where poor and middle class children reside

This film Thutturi The Bugle is an attempt to highlight this problem to raise the consciousness of society about the imperative need of nearby playground for children in each locality

The story goes like this Confined to homes for most of the year with heaps of homework and preparation for dreaded examinations, children jump with joy with declaration of summer holidays That is when they are 'allowed' to go out and play

Lack of playground in the locality compels them to play in streets Thanks to blazing publicity, cricket and computer games seem to be the only games these city children are exposed to The arrival of a village boy opens them up to the joys of rustic village games Broken glasses, obstruction to traffic etc leads parents to advise children not to play in the streets They go out in search of a place to play and find a vacant land full of stones & thorns They plead with the owner of that land - a well-meaning lonely old man left to himself with a lot of riches and also a lot of health complaints They get his permission to play there Old man is quite impressed with the way children were clearing up the whole place He becomes one with them in creating a beautiful playground there with novel ideas drawn from David Werner's famous book on creative use of readily available things around He proclaims that the playground henceforth belongs to them Mingling closely with children helps him regain his zest for life In their company he finds a new meaning to his life He starts spending more and more time playing and roaming around joyfully with children His health starts improving

Old man's only son Hari, settled in America, is not happy with his father's association with 'street children' as he calls them He arrives on the scene with his little son Abhi Abhi is quite attached to his grandfather Abhi derives great joy playing with other kids, unmindful of Hari's objections Hari's admonition of Abhi embarrasses and hurts the old man To retrieve Abhi and old man from 'street children', Hari virtually orders them to pack-up and move to America immediately, much against his wishes Hari's rudeness puts old man in a state of shock He loses his speech and becomes bed-ridden Hari cleverly uses this opportunity to keep the children away from Abhi and old man Hari is unmoved by children's pleadings & parents request and, arranges for demolition of the playground to build a commercial complex Unable to see their fruits of labor playground going out of their hands, children obstruct demolition Children & parents are taken to police station Embarrassed parents punish their children and order them to remain indoors

Finally, these children manage to regain their playground with the help of old man A realised Hari endorses the old man's gift of playground to children

The film ends with the old man appealing to all parents for dealing with children the right way and grooming them for their all round development providing space for both studies and play
