The story shows how the villagers are really excited to meet Ranga who has returned from Bangalore after studying English. They think that after studying English Ranga might have undergone some physical changes as well. They gather in large numbers in front of his house but as soon as they see that he is the same old person, they return feeling dejected. This shows the influence of English language on villages. The narrator is averse to English and its fleeting usage in the native language Kannada. The narrator considers it disgraceful. However, Ranga was influenced by the English language and culture. He wanted to marry a mature girl and not a present-day bride. The narrator did not approve of this thought.
