Swami gives a very unfair description about Samuel to his father.How would you have behaved,had you been in Swami's place?
This question is from Father's Help by R.K Narayan.
Clearly, Swami's fear of his father made him lie about Samuel and give an unfair description! Also, Swami chose to give a false excuse rather than tell the truth. I would have told my parents the fact: whether it was that I had not done my home work or that I just did not feel like going to school after a holiday. I would have owned up to my mistake and then faced the consequences, whatever they may be!
