Would you agree that promises made to poor children are rarely kept? Why do

you think this happens in the incidents narrated in the text?

Yes, the promises made to poor children are seldom kept. Often, they are not taken

seriously or have been made on the pretext of retaining a child's fancy for something.

This keeps the child hoping for a better possibility till he/she realises the truth. It is

difficult for people to shatter the children's dreams; while it is also painful to see these

children thrive of false hopes given to them.

Once, while interacting with Saheb, the narrator ends up encouraging him to study and

jokingly talks about opening a school herself. At that time she fails to realise that

unknowingly she has sown a seed of hope in Saheb's heart. She becomes conscious of

her mistake when, after a few days, Saheb approaches her, enquiring about her school.

Her hollow promise leaves her embarrassed.
