Guleri is so delighted at the opportunity to meet her family and friends. She tries to cheer up Manak who is feeling unenthusiastic.
From the story we see the custom of India, which is portrayed as prejudiced towards women. The women were rejected if they were unable to have children and just perceived as objects. The woman were just objects who produced children and that is it. The mother of Manak was pleased but Manak was totally opposite. This shows how much the mother cares for their son. It is about the self-interests, as the mother would love to be a grandmother, who will enjoy her time with a new born. But that had ruined the life of her son. Manak had loved Guleri; by him accepting his mother’s wishes the guilt stays with him. The writer Amrita Pritam would be a feminist showing the state of women who are over powered by men. The Indian culture of Sati, which is widow burning is a common custom. Guleri could only see her family once in a year, although the village Chamba was just a few miles away.
