Transcript of Narayan. A Horse And 2 Goats

by R.K.Narayan A Horse and 2 Goats by
Munir.Abdikadir Analysis on short story Plot a poor man named Muni,lives in poor conditions with his family in Kritam. His cattle and sheep decreased in numbers until he only had two goats.He passes a clay statue on his way to graze his goats every Morning. one day he was grazing his goats when a car ran out of fuel infont of him. It´s an American on holidays in India. When he sees the statue he tryes to buy it because he thinks that Muni is trying to sell it. The American only speaks English and Muni speaks in his language Tamil. They are trying to communicate but but don´t understand a word of what the other is trying to say. When the American starts showing his money while petting the goats Muni thinks the man wants to buy his goats, takes 100 rupees and leaves.
