In the story Satyaki dropped school to join the militants, comes back after 20 years to his teacher for guidance-I was told that society cheated us. After 20 years of jungle life we got nowhere. I am now asking myself who cheated whom? Did society really deceive us? Or, we are deceiving society?? Or, we are deceiving ourselves???
