Discuss the following points. 
(i) Is the boy Intelligent? If so, what is the evidence of it?
(ii) Does his outlook on the jalebis episode change after Class VIII? Does he see that episode in a new light?
(iii) Why are coins made to 'talk;' in this story? What purpose does it serve?


(i) The kid is smart. He has been winning a scholarship. With himself, he can believe and argue. He can believe about the implications of his actions rightly. But he's a human being. He can not put an end to his tentation of eating jalebis for too long.
(ii) God does not send the boy's money before a miracle happens. The boy thinks it could be done by God and it wouldn't have harmed anyone. But his Outlook shifts after class 8. He realizes that if God granted such prayer to everyone, then no one would have to do any work. All you would do would be to pray and get what you asked for. God expects us to learn the things one asks for. God expects us to learn fresh stuff and to work hard to meet our requirements.
(iii) They're saying they're talking money. He has a willingness to spend it and consume jalebis when the boy has money in his pocket. He wouldn't have been tempted like that if he had no money. < br > The coins are produced to speak in the story. In fact, the mind of the boy is in conflict. The coins express the jalebis ' desire to eat. But he is trying to suppress this urge.
