Tawfiq Al Hakim grew with a love to fine arts, particularly music, and he also loved to read especially literature, poetry and history.
is a story taken from the Diary of a Deputy officer
It was a daily situation in the train station that the judge would ask the court usher to buy him good meat, ribbed cutlets, cheese. butter and eggs. They have to meet again before the 11 o'clock train.

Rising Action
Several cases were presented here, and all of them were misheard by the judge. His judgement was firm and fast, without hearing witnesses and reasons. He give orders like arrows that pounds and shooks the heart.
The climax was a case of an old man who was sentenced a month of hard labour for eating reserve wheat. His own crop he stole as the law stated. He could not believe and he started to utter words against the law, and the judge himself
falling action
the judge was to hear the case, but he adjourned it claiming that the appeal was late. The accused has reasons why he wasn't able to make it on time, but the judge failed to listen, and the previous sentence will be effective
the session was adjourned without the judge feeling any guilt in his inner self. As usual at the train station, he will be chased by deputy officers and the accused chained like a dog, the judge will take his orders from Sha-ban and with two minutes signs a court order while saying "appeal rejected and imprisonment of defendant continues." the final line was Shaban shouting "good meat sir, ribs and kidneys"
