Then Satish Babu, having received his dues, got down and made for his father's brightly coloured pencil, which soon found its way into his mouth. In the battle between the Kurus and Pandus there was a great struggle between Bhagadatta and Arjuna.

By the extravagant terms of his original agreement he was, as we know, entitled to a share of all rents and dues, as well as of the gold collected; but it had been no one's business to collect these for him, and every one's business to neglect them.

Families in this position were hopelessly ruined.
