Summary[ edit ] In a small village of Himachal Pradesh , there lived a little girl, Binya. In the village, the shopkeeper, Ram Bharosa keeps an old ruined shop and sells warm Coca Cola bottles and sweets to the school going kids. Binya has been given a beautiful blue umbrella by foreign tourists in exchange for her leopard claw pendant.
Arun made money by fits and starts. I had every opportunity for doing so.
Arun was asleep. Moonlight came in from the veranda and fell across the bed. His face was clear and unlined. My hand took on an identity of its own as it slid around under the mattress,the fingers searching for the notes.
Arun sighed in his sleep and turned on his side, towards me. When I was in the street I began to run. It was already A good haul. When I reached the station I did not stop at the ticket office I had neverbought a ticket in my life but dashed straight onto the platform.
I hesitated long enough for the train to leave without me. I had no idea where to spend the night.
I kept thinking of Arun. A light drizzle added to my discomfort. I walked back to the bazaar and sat down on the steps of a closed shop. I felt for the notes.
Whole sentences …. They were something I had forgotten in the excitement of a hundred rupees.
Whole sentences, I knew, could one day bring me more than a hundred rupees. I should go back to Arun, I told myself, if only to learn how to write. Perhaps it was also concern for Arun that drew me back.
On the flipside, the beautiful umbrella also becomes an obsession for a few like Ram Bharosa, a small grocery shop owner. He covers the umbrella and tries to download it from Binya to no avail.
Unfortunate Event Soon the monsoon arrives and the rains bring the village school to a close. Ram Bharosa employs a young boy named Ramrajan in his shop. Trying to impress his employer, Ramrajan tries to steal the umbrella while Binya goes to collect porcupines from the forest. The whole village stops visiting his shop and he falls into great misery.
A Kind Gesture Seeing the plight of Ram Bharosa, Binya feels sympathy for him and decides to donate the umbrella to him. In return, he presents Binya a bear-claw pendant, considered even luckier than her leopard-claw pendant. Analysis Even the story is short and simple but it gives value lessons about human goodness and kindness. Binya is an example of innocence and compassion and stands out as a great role model for children and adults alike.
