  1. Interpretation

This story tires to show hard working farmers of Rota village. The famers worked hard and earn their livelihood. But the thief stole their product. It made him feel angry. But the could get his Pumpkins back. So the writer shows truth is truth. There is always victory of truth.

  1. Critical Thinking

This story is very humorous. The words are easy to understand and plain language is used. But it is difficult to recognize with the help of stems. It is also questionable to fit the stolen Pumpkins on stems.

  1. Assimilation

When I finished reading this story. The story of my villager’s came in my mind. One of my village grandfather loved working in the field. He used to plant cauliflower, onion, cabbage, Spanish, radish and so on in his field. One day someone stole a big cabbage form his garden. Early in the morning, he knew that someone had stolen his cabbage and asked his own grandson-Lok to keep silence. In the evening he went to each villager’s house to know who had stolen. He saw Mr. Datta Raj cutting his cabbage. He asked Datta Raj why he had stolen. Then Datta Raj couldn’t speak any word. He took his cabbage to his own house.
