Excerpt From The Book

Museoohe Munona oh Mundu!” shouted Gujri from the verandah of a squat. sequestered, little mud hut. thatched with straw, which stood upon the edge of a hill about a hundred yards away from the village in the valley.

And her eagle eyes explored the track of gold dust which worked its zigzag course through rough scrub, beyond the flat roofs of the village houses, under the relentless haze of the Kangra sun.

She could not see him. Munro the Munoca oh Mundu! where have you died? Where have you drifted, you of the evil star? Come back! Your uncle is leaving soon, and you must go to the town!”

She shouted again with a shrill, hoarse voice. And her gaze traveled beyond the mango-grove to the silver line of the river.

Beas and roved angrily among the greenery of the ferns and weeds and bushes that spread on either side of the stream against the purple gleam of the low hills.

‘Munro one Munona!’ she called again, exasperated, and raising her voice, this time, to the highest pitch to which. in her anger and hate.

She could carry it: “Where have you died? Where have you gone, you an ominous orphan? Come back and begone!

The piercing soprano resounded through the valley and fell on Munro’s ears with the deadening effect of all its bitter content. He heard but he did not answer.

He merely turned from the shade of a tree, where he sat hidden, to see her scarlet dress disappearing into the hut.

He had been grazing cattle on the banks of the Beas and had begun to play while the buffaloes and cows in his charge had entered the low waters of the marsh.

Where they now sat chewing the cud of little comfort that the cool of the water afforded against the torrid heat of the morning sun.
