After the death of Patel, his wife struggles hard to bring up her boy. Young Sai continues to be a ‘problem child’. One day, Sai and His friends are getting ready to play a game of marbles. They are choosing the order in which the boys would play. The game involves placing some marbles within a circle drawn on the ground and knocking this collection with another marble thrown from a distance, somewhat like in modern bowling.
YOUNG SAI: Don’t just talk; show it in action.
KRISHNA: If you can’t strike this marble, you have to return all the ten marbles you took.
YOUNG SAI: Yes, but in case I strike, this white marble becomes mine.
KRISHNA: O.K. Place all the ten marbles.
YOUNG SAI: Will do, but if after I strike the white marble you hem and haw and don’t give it to me, I shall swallow not only the marble but also you!
KRISHNA: Bet now.
YOUNG SAI: Done.
KRISHNA: Place all your ten marbles.
YOUNG SAI: You too, place that white marble.
