From where did the peddler get the idea of the world being a rattrap?
One day the peddler was fallen into a line of thought, as he was thinking naturally of his rattraps and then he suddenly struck by an idea that the whole world i.e., lands and seas, its cities and villages was nothing but a big rattrap. It existed only to set baits for people. It offered riches and joys, shelter and food, heat and clothing in the same manner as rattrap offer cheese and pork. As soon as someone let himself be tempted the bait, he finds himself trapped.
