give the character sketch of the king

The king is very just and placid as has been stressed by the poet ,VIkram Seth in his poem The tale of melon city. The kingwishes justice to be ensured to all his subjects and never shows displeasure on his face.

Though the king is very just and placid ,he is unable to think in situations where the crowd becomes restless and he just agrees to what his subjects want without reasoning it out.This results in the king himself being hanged due to his own foolishness .He never goes against the wishes of any person, so he can never think on how to solve a problem by himself.

Altogether ,the just and placid king's foolishness due to lack of reasoning,logical and analytical ability was the very cause of his own hanging .
