Answer :

Oliver Lutkins was indeed good at making up convincing stories and using his presence of mind to deceive others in believing every lie that he told them. As soon as Lutkins came to know that a Lawyer has arrived in town and had been making enquiries about him, he met the Lawyer himself while portraying himself as a hack Driver. He also told the Lawyer that Lutkins owed him some money over a game of Poker and therefore managed to display a harmless and genuine image. To the lawyer, the hack driver seemed to be a simple country man ready to help. He took him to many places like Beincke’s, Gustaff’s barber shop, Grey’s barber shop, poolroom and his mother’s farmyard, in search of Lutkins. At every place they went, people told the lawyer that he just missed Lutkins by merely five minutes. Thus Lutkins, very cleverly, fooled the lawyer.

Kisa Ghotami was very worried about her deceased son as she was wandering door to door in search for help but however couldn’t find any. She was directed by someone to Sakyamuni, the Buddha, who asked her to bring a handful of mustard seeds which provided Ghotami that her son could be saved. However, The Buddha kept a strange condition that the mustard seeds must be from a house whose family must not have lost anyone to death. After her futile search for such house, she sat weary and sad along a wayside outside the city and saw the flickering city-lights. Sitting there she realized the nature of death and how is it impossible to escape from the cycle of life. She also realized that how her attempts to intervene the processes of nature are just indications of her selfishness and how she can only be happy if she just accepts the sad demise of her son.
