  1. Sidda was hanging about the gate at a moment when Mr Sivasanker was standing in the front veranda of his house brooding over the servant problem.
    "Sir, do you want a servant?" Sidda asked.
    "Come in" said Mr Sivasanker. As Sidda opened the gate and came in, Mr Sivasanker subjected him to a scrutiny and said to himself, "Doesn't seem to be a bad sort ... At any rate, the fellow looks tidy."
    "Where were you before?" he asked.
    Sidda said, "In a bungalow there," and indicated a vague somewhere, "in the doctor's house.". "What is his name?". "I don't know master," Sidda said. "He lives near the market." "Why did they send you away?". "They left the town, master," Sidda said, giving the stock reply.
    Mr Sivasanker was unable to make up his mind. He called his wife. She looked at Sidda and said, "He doesn't seem to me worse than the others we have had." Leela, their five-year-old daughter, cane out, looked at Sidda and gave a cry of joy. "Oh Father!" she said "I like him. Don't send him aay. Let us keep him in our house." And that decided it.

    Sidda was given two meals a day and four rupees a month, in return for which he washed clothes, tended the garden, ran errands, chopped wood and looked after Leela.
    "Sidda, come and play!" Leela would cry, and Sidda had to drop any work he might be doing and run to her, as she stood in the front garden with a red ball in her hand. His company made her supremely happy. She flung the ball at him and he flung it back. And then she said, "Now throw the ball into the sky." Sidda clutched the ball, closed his eyes for a second and threw the ball up. When the ball came down again, he said, "Now this has touched the moon and come. You see here a little bit of the moon sticking." Leela keenly examined the ball for traces of the moon and said, "I don't see it."
    "You must be very quick about it," said Sidda, "because it will all evaporate and go back to the moon. Now hurry up...." He covered the ball tightly with his fingers and allowed her to peep through a little gap.
    "Ah yes," said Leela. "I see the moon, but is the moon very wet?"
    "Certainly it is," Sidda said.
    "What is in the sky, Sidda?"
    "God, he said.
    "If we stand on the roof and stretch our arms, can we touch the sky?"
    "Not if we stand on the roof here," he said. "But if you stand on a coconut tree you can touch the sky."
    "Have you done it?" asked Leela.
    "Yes, many times" said Sidda. "Whenever there is a big moon, climb a coconut tree and touch it."
    "Does the moon know you?"
    "Yes, very well. Now come with me. I will show you something nice." They were standing near the rose plant. He said, pointing, "You see the moon there, don't you?".
    "Yes."
    "Now come with me," he said, and took her to the backyard. He stopped near the well and pointed up. The moon was there, too. Leela clapped her hands and screamed in wonder, "The moon here! It was there! How is it? "
    " I have asked it to follow us about."
    Leela ran in and told her mother, "Sidda knows the moon." At dusk he carried her in and she held a class for him. She had a box filled with catalogues, illustrated books and stumps of pencils. It gave her great joy to play the teacher to Sidda. She made him squat on the floor with a pencil between his fingers and a catalogue in front of him. She had another pencil and a catologue and commanded, "Now write." And he had to try and copy whatever she wrote in the pages of her catologue. She knew two or three letters of the alphabet and could draw a kind of cat and crow. But none of these could Sidda even remotely copy. She said, examining his effort, "Is ths how I have drawn the crow? Is this how I have drawn the B?" She pitied him, and redoubled her efforts to teach him. But that good fellow, though an adept at controlling the moon, was utterly incapable of plyng the pencil. Consequently, it looked as though Leela would keep him thee, pinned to his seat till his stiff, inflexible wrist cracked. He sought relief by saying, "I think your mother is calling you in to dinner." Leela would drop the pencil and run out of the room, and the school hour would end.
    After dinner Leela ran to her bed. Sidda had to be ready with a story. He sat down on the floor near the bed and told incomparable stories: of animals in the jungle, of gods in heaven, of magicians who could conjure up golden castles and fill them with little princesses and their pets....
    Day by day she clung closer to him. She insisted upon having his company all her waking hours. She was at his side when he was working in the garden or chopping wood, and accompanied him when he was sent on errands.

    One evening he went out to buy sugar and Leela went with him. When they came home, Leela's mother noticed that a gold chain Leela had been wearing was missing. "Where is your chain?" Leela looked into her shirt, searched and said, "I don't know." Her mother gave her a slap and said, "Gow many times have I told you to take it off and put it in the box?"
    is nice story.

  30. 1.) Leela and Sidda are very good friends. Sidda is the servant of Leela.
    2.) At the beginning of the story Mr Sivasanker and Sidda were master and servant. Later Sidda was only a thief for Mr S. because he thought that Sidda had stolen the golden chain.
    3.) The parents want to protect Leela without carrying for her feelings. At the beginning the relationship is quite better, so the parents do everything for Leela

  31. good relation 7797931616

    (Posted on 2013-04-15 10:51:00 by )
  32. good relation 7797931616

    (Posted on 2013-04-15 11:50:00 by )
  33. 1) The relationship between Leela and Sidda is very good. Leela likes Sidda, because he plays with her and reads to her lovely stories. They are very happy together.

    2) At the beginning of the story is Sidda just a servant for Mr. Savasanker. A servant, who doesn’t seem to be from a bad sort. At the end, Sidda is only a criminal for Mr. Savasanker.

    3) I think the relationship between Leela and her parents is normal. They love her. They give her jewels. And they are worry about her, when they hear that Sidda is a criminal. Leela doesn’t understand her parents, maybe because she is now five years old.

    (Posted on 2011-03-06 21:42:00 by )
  34. 2. At the beginning Mr. Sivasanker can not make his mind. At the end he is not fair. In his opinion Sidda is a thief. He went to the police although he don´t talk to Sidda and when they find the gold chain in the tamarind pot Mr.Sivasanker charakterises him as a criminal.
    3. The parents are not so hartely like Sidda. When he was gone Mrs. Sivasanker was not able to tell a story for the night. She is more considered about thinks in the household which could be stolen. She askes every day after the the jewel and do not see that Leela is not happy. What a uncaring sort of parents.

    (Posted on 2011-03-06 19:37:00 by )
  35. Leela and Sidda have a good relationship. Leela likes him from the very first time. Sidda cares for Leela in every situation. For example they play with a ball in the garden. But he do not only throw the ball to Leela but also connects the game with an interesting story about this ball which has touched the moon and comes back with a little bit of the moon sticking. He also tells interesting stories when Leela has to go bed. Because of the this she likes Sidda and is thankful. For example she is at Sidda`s side when he works in the garden or when he has to do errands.

    (Posted on 2011-03-06 19:11:00 by )
  36. 1. Sidda is for Leela like an older brother. She learned a lot of new things from him and she also taught him. Leela really enjoys Siddas company, she would not like to miss him anymore.
    2. Mr Sivasanker had a bad feeling at the beginning when Sidda became their servant. But then he saw how happy his daughter was.
    So he was really scared when he found out about Sidda´s criminal past.
    Even if he did not steal the chain the Sivasankers they were relived to know who the real Sidda was.
    3. The Sivasankers are a lovely family. The parents only want the best for Leela. They were happy when they fount a servant who was also a friend for their daughter.

    (Posted on 2011-03-06 19:05:00 by )
  37. The relationship between Leela and her parents does not seem to be the best. I would say that Leela has not got many friends and she lives like in a golden cage. Her parents do not take enough care of her daughter. It seems they want to show Leela their love with material things like the golden chain.

    (Posted on 2011-03-06 18:41:00 by )
  38. Question two : I think Sidda is very thankful that he can work for Mr. Sivasanker and his family. For Mr. Sivasanker Sidda is a very good servant. He does all the housework and also takes care of his daughter Leela. At the end of the story Mr. Sivasanker has got a new knowledge of Sidda and does not want him back at his home to work for them. He only has Siddas criminal activities in mind which he had done before.

    (Posted on 2011-03-06 18:16:00 by )
  39. N3
    The relationship between Leela and her parents seems to be distanced.
    On the one hand, her father trusts her and lets Leela dicide about Sidda. The parents let Leela wear jewels and she is very free although she is only 5 years old.She is allowed to do a lot of things.
    But on the other hand, Sidda seems to be more important for Leela than her parents. When Leela lost the chain her mother gave her a slap. Mrs Sivasanker is not able to tell her stories, although she is her mother.In line 313 Leela told her parents that Sidda had not taken the chain.But the fathers reaction is angrily.He warns his daughter and let her know to behave.
    All in all I have got the impression that the relationship between Leela and her parents is very material and distanced.

    (Posted on 2011-03-01 18:04:00 by )
  40. Answer I:

    The relationship between Sidda and Leela is well. The girl loves Siddas company, his stories and does he play with her.

    Answer II:

    Mr. Sivasanker still thinks of Sidda as a criminal.

    Answer III:

    The parents think Leela is lying about her chain. They think, Sidda have take it away.

    (Posted on 2011-03-01 10:33:00 by )
  41. 1.) Leela and Sidda are very good friends. Sidda is the servant of Leela.

    2.) At the beginning of the story Mr Sivasanker and Sidda were master and servant. Later Sidda was only a thief for Mr S. because he thought that Sidda had stolen the golden chain.

    3.) The parents want to protect Leela without carrying for her feelings. At the beginning the relationship is quite better, so the parents do everything for Leela

    (Posted on 2011-03-01 10:30:00 by )
  42. At the beginning Mr S. seems to be very careful. He didn`t has the impression that Sidda is one of the bad sort. But Leela decides about Sidda`s role. Mr S. trusts his daughter. After a while, when the chain has been stolen, Mr. S gets critical about him. He gets informed S. is a criminal, by the police.
    All in all S. is a criminal for him who could not be kept in the sivasanker`s house.

    (Posted on 2011-03-01 10:29:00 by )
  43. #1 : Leela likes and adores Sidda. Leela trust Sidda .

    (Posted on 2011-03-01 10:29:00 by )
  44. Answer 1): L adores him while he feels himself as her big brother.

    Answer 2): MrS. sees S just as a servant at the beginning of the story. At the end he sees him as a criminal and not trust-worthy.

    Answer 3): L is seen as the five year old girl and is not taken seriously.

    (Posted on 2011-03-01 10:26:00 by )
  45. 1) Although Leela didn`t know Sidda, She had a good first impression of him.The relationship developes day by day. She is impressed of his stories and teaches him in writting. She clangs closer to him and seems to be dependent of him.

    (Posted on 2011-03-01 10:23:00 by )
  46. Question one : Leela likes Sidda , because he plays with her and tells her sories befor she goes to bed.
