''TIT FOR TAT ''

‘’ TIT FOR TAT ‘’
‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’
There is a saying  ‘A sailor must have a wife at every shore’ So also  our Kunjanpillai ,The land lord ,uncrowned king ,has coconut gardens and paddy fields
At every nook and corner of the country and he has a wife at every where .
Janaky’s uncle was so happy , when he proposed to marry Janaky and he got her married to this land lord  with much enthusiasm. He took Janakyto one of his shelters and after a few days engaged a neibhouring  lady  to look after her and
 went off to visit other houses and to look after the properties. He used to come
 to  Janaky’s  house once in a way. After a year or two she gave birth to a baby, and the servant lady sent some one to inform  Kunjanpillai about the arrival of his
 son. After a few days he came to Janaky  with paddy, coconut , gingili oil and other things like banana ,and all,according  to the custom  .He sat in the armchair,at  the ‘poomukham’ and asked the lady to bring the child  ,for him to see  for the first time. When she brought the baby he looked  at the child and
asked Janaky ,very angrily ‘’ see Janaky ,you are fair ,so also me …,then why the baby is so dark?’’ Then she replied  ‘’you visited me twice a year and bring,some paddy.How can I manage the house  with it ? then  the children will be dark or fair
like this. ‘’ Then she closed the door with a bang.
