What need have I to ask so many persons? You know. Say, how was the bridal procession, and what illuminations?
Hear how the procession was conducted: he gave a to the nabob, and got the palankin in which he himself goes, with half the attendants thereon. What shall I say more about illuminations? there were a thousand branch lamps with glass flowers, lighted up; and I can't say how many fire-works: I suppose there were two or three thousand of them.
Then the wedding was conducted bravely. Your village people probably heard all. How did he dismiss the other ghutukas? Tell that.
Whatever other ghutukas there were, some got four, others five rupees, and a suit of clothes.
Well, what fault is there then? The wedding was well managed. I asked another person or two, but they said he had married him in a certain way, neither very good nor very bad, middling.
Let those who speak evil, go through one or two such, then they'll know; otherwise what difficulty is there in speaking; nothing sticks in the mouth: a man may say any thing.
Die. Let things be as they may. Now I ask you one word: you have seen all; if we go, shall we get any thing or not?
Yes, you may. So many ghutukas came, and no one departed as he came. Why should not you get something? Go. You will get something.
