His prayer to God is like a lawyer's defence of a bad case. Does he argue his case well? What are the points he makes?
He claims that he did not understand that the next day he would not receive cash from the scholarship. He wouldn't spend the money if he knew this. He also said in his defense, though, that he said he had eaten all the jalebis. He shared it with other children.
He admits his fault and promises in the future that he will never repeat it. But once he begged help.
