Think about it
1. What are Hari Singh’s reactions to the prospect of receiving an education? Do they change over time? (Hint; compare, for example, the thought: “I knew that once I could write like an educated man there would be no limit to what I could achieve” with these later thoughts:” whole sentences, I knew, could one day bring me more than a few hundred rupees. It was a simple matter to steal – and sometimes just as simple to be caught. But to be a really big man, a clever and respected man, was something else”.) what makes him return to anil?
Ans: Hari Singh believed in the beginning that if he could read and write like an educated man there would be no limit of his achievements. But later his reactions to the prospect of education changed. After stealing anil’s money he began thinking. He thought he would be able to get more than a few hundred rupees if he learned whole sentences. Here, money because less important to him. He believed education could make him big, clever and respected. He knew anil was the man who could make him realise his aim. And so to become educated he returned to anil.
2. Why does not anil hand the thief over to the police? Do you think most people would have done so? In what ways is anil different from such employers?
Ans: Anil does not hand the thief over to the police because he is a large-hearted man. He knew that Hari Singh was a thief. Still, he kept him. His real love for the thief roused in Hari Singh the real man. Anil knew that Hari Singh wanted to give up stealing and for that only had returned to him. So he took the matter easily.

But most people would not have done so. Anil is different from most people and succeeded is reforming a thief by dint of his kindness, sympathy, and love.
