Comments: This story reveals an emotionally disturbed individual who cannot adjust himself harmoniously to his surroundings. He is rigid and quarrelsome. In spite of his being in the wrong and knowing he would be losing his job, he fights with his boss. This displays an irresponsible attitude. He also lacks the courage to awn up his mistakes. The other character in the story also has been depicted as a selfish and undependable person. Shamim ignores the one whom she loved when the lover loses his joy. It shows a weak character lacking insincerity. The story has a negative ending. The author reveals a pessimistic attitude. The individual is not suited for leadership assignments. STRONGLY REJECTED.

Comments: The hero in this story has been depicted as an individual lacking in courage and determination. He knows his weakness but hides it from his would be wife. He lacks the will power to put an end to as bad habit although it is running him and his family life. Even the pleading of his wife, who was in the family way could not make him stay away from the races. He proves to be selfish and inconsiderate. Finally, he takes his own life. He does not reform and do some service to the community to alone for his faults. Thus we find him to be coward running away from life. The heroine also proves to be a weak person. She gives in easily rather than facing facts and fighting her way out to victory. The author is thus a weak, selfish individual lacking in will power and determination. NOT SELECTED.
