A corpulent guy, he tumbles out of the car and opens the bonnet to suss out the glitch but is surprised that everything’s in order. He gets behind the wheel to resume his journey but, adamantly, the car won’t budge and the bonnet plonks open on its own volition.

    Eerily, the bonnet starts playing “You shut-I open” with Bob many times over until he discovers the mischief-monger – a bee in the bonnet. The bee gives Bob a hard time as it stings, boos and evades him. After draining Bob of his patience and driving him mad, the bee finally flies away. An exasperated Bob watches helplessly.

    Story:
             The story revolves around the untimely death of Dr. Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR) - the former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh who had initiated numerous “Health, Poverty-alleviation and Emergency Medical Care Schemes” for the benefit of underprivileged citizens and accident-prone victims of Andhra Pradesh. By mitigating suffering and pain and improving the quality of life of the people of Andhra Pradesh, these schemes have led to a lower death rate. Impressed by the nobility of YSR, Lord Yama grants him a wish, to which Y.S.R responds with folded hands: “Please send me back to Earth. I wish to complete the numerous welfare schemes that legions of my brothers and sisters have come to expect of me. They need me”. Touched by this selfless wish, Lord Yama sends Y.S.R to his rightful place in Heaven saying that the presence of such noble souls will elevate Heaven.
