Malgudi Days – मालगुडी डेज – Episode 46 – Cat Within – पाप का घड़ा
It is a funny tale of exploitation in the village where a landlord and an exorcist combine to squeeze the blood from their miserably poor tenants. To protect his loot, the landlord places six kerosene cans one on top of each other hoping that any thief might sound the alarm. But the only thieves here are rats- not humans. The exorcist suggests that a cat could deal with these vermin. When a brass pot suddenly comes alive bouncing up and down in the landlord’s godown, the terror stricken tenants not realizing that the cat is under the pot huddle together and the exorcist is sent for driving away the evil spirit !
