Interpretation

This story tries to show the life of modern youth. Modern youths enjoy city life and forget their birth place, friends and their own family members. They dream for unusual things and feel sadness when they get failure in getting success and lament for their wrong doing in their youth. The writer wants to convey that we shouldn’t forget our birthplace. One should have love and affection towards one’s birth place.

Critical Thinking

To some extent, I completely agree with the writer because nowadays young boys and girls prefer to lice in towns and get married there with fashionable girls. They try to forget family members like Krishna but I don’t agree with the write when he says that Krishna didn’t receive the phone when was phone for him on the table. Can a husband feel happy when his wife dies? How can a person forget his birthplace?

Assimilation

When I read this story, I remembered the real event that took place in my own village. One of my village friend, Hemant joined the police force and became police. After he became police, he got married with a girl in the city and settled there. He never visits his old parents in the village. When I meet his parents they weep bitterly touching my chin. They always request me to call him back home but when I talk with Hemant he doesn’t care then I feel sorry for his parents.
