A kabuliwala, a small trader in Kabul comes to Hindusthan to earn some money because his daughter is not keeping too well. He has taken some loan from his friend who is a Pathan. In Hindusthan he tries selling his wares on the streets. He befriends a little girl called Mini. Mini's parents are a little apprehensive of their daughter's friendship with the kabuliwala. But Mini becomes very fond of him and he dotes on her. She reminds him of the little daughter he has left behind in Kabul. He spoils her with dry fruits and nuts and the relationship strengthens. One day the kabuliwala is engaged in a brawl whereby he kills someone and is sent to jail for some years. When he is out if jail, he comes to meet Mini but Mini who is a grown up girl now is due to get married on the same day. This sight fills him with a deep nostalgia and he realises that it is probably time for his daughter also to get settled in life. He leaves the place with tears in his eyes and decides to return home.
