Bela and Kamal go to school. Anita Desai has explicitly described in her very own style of writing, and she shows how Hari in the dilapidated conditions of the Sri Krishna Eating House finds warmth and affection through Mr Panwallah — owner and watch mender of the Ding-Dong watch shop.
He also goes back to Thul with the help of Mr Panwallah and Jagu insisting to buy the bus ticket. The writing was simple and it was really easy to read. Even thatis not regular. The only thinking that he can do immediately now is to go to Bombay and try for a job.
But all these are to happen in future. Hari has three possibilities before him to get a job. Anita Desai beautifully, and in a very simple language, describes the events that follow.
As Hari reunites with his sisters, they all begin sharing stories with each other detailing the changes that took place after Hari left. I felt like Anita Desai just waved a magic wand over the family and made everything better.
Meanwhile, Lila, Bela and Kamal admit their sick mother in town hospital through the help of the De Silvas. It beautifully shows the typical village life in India. Now these four small children get no support from their parents.
Again, I felt quite distanced from the story because of the writing but I did enjoy it. Hari climbs them and picks coconuts and sell them to Malabaris. Lila and Hari have already stopped-going. Their father turns over a new leaf, and accompanies their mother throughout her 7-month treatment.
They live with their mother, who has been chronically ill and is bed-ridden. When Hari returns to the village soon-after, he finds the environment of his home totally changed.
Their father is an alcoholic, which forces Hari and Lila to manage the family. I would have loved if the characters were more fleshed out. With two younger sisters and a bed ridden mother to take care of, life for Lila and Hari is too hard.
Disturbed and agitated by the conditions at his place, Hari runs away to Bombay, leaving behind Lila to take care of their parents and sisters.
