The objective is merely to exhort readers to read the original story or a better translation if available. This is a touching tale of an old woman, and the travails of the elderly. The nephew and his wife behaved very well with the aunt initially, and the trusting old woman bequeathed her property to them.

No words can express what you feel after reading him. These are diametrically different stories, with very different settings, different protagonists, and different dilemmas. Boodhi Kaki is a poignant tale of an old woman, helpless and without any support except that of the householdher nephewswhere she is now living. Even though the nephews wealth has come to him because of Kaki, Kaki is neglected, lonely, and unloved by all except her nephews little daughter.
Hardaul Singh, on the other hand, is set in the Bundela kingdom of Orchha, where the prince, Hardaul Singh, is obliged to reign while his elder brother, Jujhar Singh, is sent off to the Deccan by the Mughal emperor Shahjahan. Jealousy, suspicion, and a thirst for vengeance ensue. Boodhi Kaki, on the other hand, is heartbreakingly touching, and brought tears to my eyes more than once.
Contains two short stories which deals with morale and basic human nature. Makes us question our surroundings as usual after reading premchand. All in all a good read.
