Even when his son, Gobar, offers to pay back money at a rate similar to what the banks charge, Hori allows his fear of Brahmins to overcome his common sense and refuses the offer. The surreptitiousness of a grim and mundane life is so realistically presented that the image that has been created concerning prosperity and happiness leaps over the fence of anonymity and passes out in seclusion.

Not only it showcases the farmer’s poor condition which ironically is “evergreen”albeit the troubles and mentality of the rich and elite class too. Premcuand village Panchayat takes action against Hori for sheltering a low caste girl and issued a penalty on Hori.
