Who says this to whom and why? “But is it right, my son, to keep mum and not say what you consider just and fair?”

“But is it right, my son, to keep mum and not say what you consider just and fair?”- This was said by the old lady to Algu when Algu said that he cannot go against his best friend Jumman.

Who says this to whom and why? “What have you to say in your defence?”

“What have you to say in your defence?”- Algu said this to his friend Jumman, when the old lady’s plea was being considered in front of panchayat.

Who says this to whom and why? “I can’t pay you a penny for the wretched beast you sold me.”

“I can’t pay you a penny for the wretched beast you sold me.”- Sahu said this to Algu because the bullock that Algu sold to Sahu had died within a month for which he denied to pay the money.

Who says this to whom and why? “Victory to the panchayat. This is justice.”

“Victory to the panchayat. This is justice.”- Algu said this to the head of Panch Jumman when he made that verdict that Algu cannot be held responsible for the death of the bullock as it did not suffer from any disease or disability at the time of sale and Sahu would have to the pay the money to Algu.

“Then the situation changed.” What is being referred to?

The situation being referred to is Jumman and his family’s behaviour towards his aunt. Jumman’s aunt had transferred her property in his name on the understanding that he would look after her. The arrangement did work well for a couple of years but later, Jumman and his family grew tired of her. He became indifferent to her and his wife too grudged the little food the old lady wanted daily.

When Jumman’s aunt realised that she was not welcome in his house, what arrangement did she suggest?

When Jumman’s aunt realised that she was not welcome in his house she suggested that Jumman should give her a monthly allowance so that she could set up a separate kitchen.

What was the villagers’ reaction when the aunt explained her case to them?

When Jumman shamelessly disagreed to the old lady’s suggestion of a separate kitchen, she got angry. She explained her case to villagers, some of them sympathised with her while others laughed at her situation. Few even advised her to make it up with her nephew and his wife.

Why was Jumman happy over Algu’s nomination as head Panch?

Jumman was happy over Algu’s nomination as head Panch because Algu was Jumman best friend and he would never go against him.

“God lives in the heart of the Panch.” the aunt said. What did she mean?

The old lady meant that Panch is always unbiased. She referred to Algu by saying that he would never kill his conscience for the sake of friendship. Everybody is equal before Panch. The justice delivered was the justice delivered by God.

What was Algu’s verdict as head Panch? How did Jumman take it?

After proper cross-examination of Jumman by Algu and others, Algu gave the verdict that Jumman will have to pay his aunt the monthly allowance or else he would have to return her property back to her. Jumman felt betrayed by Algu, friends had turned enemies and Jumman wanted his revenge with Algu.

Algu found himself in a tight spot. What was his problem?

One of Algu’s fine pair of bullocks died, and he sold the other to Samjhu Sahu on the understanding that Sahu would pay the price of the bullock in a month’s time. The bullock died within a month and Sahu refused to pay the price to Algu.

Why was Algu upset over Jumman’s nomination as head Panch?

Algu was upset because Jumman was not his friend anymore after Algu’s verdict in favour of Jumman’s aunt. He knew that Jumman would take his revenge.

What was Jumman’s verdict as head Panch? How did Algu take it?

Jumman’s verdict as head Panch was that since the bullock did not suffer frok any disability or disease when Sahu bought it, although the death was unfortunate Algu could not be blamed for it. Therefore, Sahu would have to pay Algu the price of bullock. Algu could not contain his feelings on the verdict. He was overjoyed with happiness and stood up and said loudly over and over again, “Victory to the panchayat. This is justice. God lives in the heart of the Panch.”
