The New Schoolmaster
Master Kostra is the new teacher at Arun’s school in Mallikpore. He has come from a fine school in Bombay and is not used to the small village school, where the pupils sit in the street and use slates and chalk. He finds the children rude and noisy–and they think he doesn’t like them. When Arun invites him home for a visit, all the misunderstanding is cleared up in a surprising turn of events.
