Answer :

In the story, “The Homecoming”, Phatik who is the protagonist of the story is faced by many crossroads before he could reach home.

Though Phatik wanted to go home, he delays it because he knew that he would be punished for being involved in a scuffle. On his way he met his uncle Bhishamber who proposes to take him to Kolkata along with him so that he could get opportunities for better education. Phatik was very excited to go but that homecoming proved to be another disappointment.
