The astrologer belonged to a village. His forefathers were farmers. He too would have become a farmer if he had continued living in the village. He was a silly youth who one day drank, gambled and quarrelled badly. He stabbed a man and left him for dead. He ran away to a far -off town. There he became an astrologer. He was as much a stranger to the stars as were his innocent customers. He did his job through guesswork only, yet he was very successful. He was dressed in such a way that people were attracted to him as bees as attracted to Flowers. The astrologer was very tactful and clever also. He always said things that pleased his customers. I hope it would help you to get better marks. Cheers!

The nameless protagonist of the story, the astrologer is not truly an astrologer, but a con man. He sets up shop each day beneath a tree in a market, wearing a priest’s garb and face paint and posing as a holy man with cosmic wisdom. For a small fee, he listens to people’s problems and offers what seems like sage advice, dressing his common sense and manipulations in an astrologist’s vernacular. Despite having no actual astrological wisdom, he is quite perceptive and offers comfort to his customers by giving them self-affirming answers and easing their minds. It is revealed at the end of the story that the astrologer is in hiding, having fled his home and past life as a farmer after he drunkenly attempted to murder Guru Nayak. As far as he knows, he actually did take Guru Nayak’s life, and feels a great burden at the thought of being a murderer. His burden is not borne out of pity for Guru Nayak, however, but of his own self-interest. Even when the astrologer meets Guru Nayak, he makes no attempt to atone for his crime. Although he is the protagonist, the astrologer is not the hero of the story. The astrologer has a wife and child, neither of whom know anything of his murderous past.
