Answer the following question in 80-100 words:
“Don’t you worry, Pitaji! In your old age I will serve you and mother”. Through this statement the narrator wants to highlight the moral values Bholi was imbued with. Based on the reading of the lesson, what made Bholi aware of her rights and how did she use them?
Unlike Ramlal's other children, Bholi was not healthy and strong. She was treated differently from her siblings, not only by the village people but by her parents as well. But her teacher brought a new ray of hope in Bholi's life. She was very encouraging which made her gain confidence to speak. After years of gaining education and with the help of her teacher, Bholi turned into a confident girl. She no longer stammered and could speak properly. She even had the courage to refuse to marry the lame old man because of his greediness. On seeing her father worried about her marriage, she said that he need not worry, as she would teach in the same school where she learnt so much and would take care of him and her mother in their old age. Thus, education and love from her teacher transformed Bholi.
