1GURU DAKSHINA

A student turned bandit waylays a bullock-cart in pitch darkness and succeeds in looting the jewels of a woman traveller. Although she willing parts with all the jewels, she clings to her Mangala Sutra, saying- "It's my life's breath...", despite severe threats hurled. Finding the tenacity unyielding, her husband, a teacher sitting next, abusing threatens to cane her, if her stubborness goes further. Recalling that particular mannerism, the bandit identifies him as his erstwhile master, who like the Gurus of the past lives only for character development of his wards than imparting Ex-oriented knowledge. Returning the booty in token of his homage, the bandit vanishes into the dakness.
