The fateful day

Ganapati's parents had bought lots of jewellery for the marriages of their three daughters, but these young girls did not want to get married. This jewellery, along with the jewellery of Ganapati's mother, aunts and cousins, plus their family savings, was all kept in a safe at "Griha Lakshmi."

One day all of Ganapati's relatives returned to the village to observe the Durga Puja festival. Ganapati's father entrusted Suren with the job of guarding the bank. But what Suren did was steal all the money and jewellery from this safe, and then disappear.

That was how he guarded the bank!
