The Magic Pencil Summary in English and Tamil

Chris was a little boy who enjoyed going to school and doing all sorts of things except art and writing. Using brushes and pencils was not easy for him. So, his artwork was never a happy ending, and he would give up quickly.

க்ரிஸ் என்ற சிறுவன் பள்ளிக்குச் செல்வதில் சந்தோஷப்படுபவன் அவனுக்கு படம் வரைவதுமற்றும் எழுதுவது ஆகியவற்றை தவிர, மற்ற அனைத்தையும் செய்வது பிடிக்கும். தூரிகைகளையும், பென்சில்களையும் உபயோகிப்பது அவனுக்கு எளிதாக இருக்கவில்லை . அதனால் படம் வரைவது அவனுக்கு எப்போதும் மகிழ்ச்சியைத் தருகிற செயலாக முடிந்ததில்லை , அதனால் அவன் விரைவில் (பாதியில்) விட்டுவிடுவான்.

But one day Chris found a pencil of such lovely colours that he could not resist and he tried to draw a circle. As always, it did not go well, he was about to throw the pencil away. Just then, his drawing began to speak to him.

ஆனால் ஒரு நாள் க்ரிஸ் பல அழகிய வண்ண ங்களைக் கொண்ட பென்சிலை கண்டவுடன், ஆசையை அடக்கஇயலாமல் ஒரு வட்டம் வரைய முயன்றான். வழக்கம் 4 போலவே அது சரியாக வராததால், அவன் பென்சிலை தூக்கி எறிய முற்பட்டான். அப்போது தான், அவனுடைய ஓவியம் அவனிடம் பேச ஆரம்பித்தது.

“Hey! Are you going to leave me like this? At least draw me a pair of eves ” said the drawing. Chris was shocked, but he managed to draw two little spots inside the circle.

“ஏய், என்னை இப்படியே விட்டுவிடப் போகிறாயா? எனக்கு குறைந்தபட்சம் கண்களையாவது வரைந்துவிடேன்” என்று அந்த ஓவியம் கூறியது. க்ரிஸ் அதிர்ந்து போனான், ஆனாலும் இரு சிறிய புள்ளிகளை அந்த வட்டத்திற்குள் வரைந்தான்.

Samacheer Kalvi 4th English Guide Term 3 Supplementary Chapter 3 The Magic Pencil

“Much better, now I can see myself,” said the circle looking around at itself. “Ahh! What have you done to me?” “I don’t draw very well,” said Chris, trying to make excuses. “OK. No problem.” said the drawing. ” I am sure that if you try again, you’ll do better. Go on, rub me out!” So, Chris erased the circle and drew another one. Like the first one, it was not very round.

“பரவாயில்லை , இப்போது என்னையே என்னால் பார்க்க முடிகிறது” என்ற வட்டம், தன்னையே சுற்றிபார்த்துக் கொண்டு “ஆஹா… எனக்கு நீ என்னசெய்துவிட்டாய்?” என்றது. “எனக்கு நன்றாய் வரையத் தெரியாது” என்று கிரிஸ் மன்னிப்பு கோரினான். “பரவாயில்லை, ஒன்றும் பிரச்னையில்லை” என்ற வட்டம், “நீ மறுபடி முயன்றால், உன்னால் நன்றாகவரைய முடியும். என்னை தேய்த்து அழி” என்றது. 10 அதனால், க்ரிஸ் அந்த வட்டத்தை அழித்துவிட்டு வேறு ஒன்றை வரைந்தான். அது முன்னர் வரைந்து போல் முழு வட்டமாக இல்லை .

“Hey! You forgot my eyes again!” “Oh, yeah.”Hmm, I think I’m going to have to teach you how to draw until you can do me well;”. said the circle with its quick, squeaky little voice.

“ஹே! மறுபடியும் , என் கண்களை வரைய மறந்துவிட்டாய்!””ஆமாம்” என்றான் க்ரிஸ்.””ம்.. என்னை சரியாக நீ வரையும் வரையில் நான்தான் உனக்கு சொல்லித்தர வேண்டியிருக்கும் போல் உள்ளது,” என்று வட்டம் தன் விரைவான, மெல்லிய குரலில் கூறியது.

Chris, who was still shocked, thought that this was a good idea. He immediately found himself drawing and erasing circles.The circle would not stop saying “Rub this out, but carefully; it hurts,” or “Draw me some hair, quickly, I look like a lollipop!”and other funny remarks.

தன் அதிர்ச்சியிலிருந்து மீளாத க்ரிஸ், இது ஒரு நல்ல யோசனை என நினைத்தான். உடனே அவன் வட்டங்களை வரைதல், அழித்தல் என வேலையில்இறங்கினான். வட்டமும், “இதை அழி, கவனம்” “வலிக்கிறது” “எனக்கு கொஞ்சம் முடியை வரை, சீக்கிரம், நான் பார்ப்பதற்கு ஒரு லாலிபாப் மிட்டாய்) போல இருக்கிறேன்,” என்று விதவிதமாக குரல் கொடுத்துக் கொண்டிருந்தது.

After spending the whole afternoon together, Chris could now draw the little figure much better than most of his classmates. He was enjoying it so much that he did not want to stop drawing with this crazy new teacher of his. Before going to bed that night, Chris gave his teacher a hearty thank you for teaching him to draw.

மதியம் முழுவதும் செலவிட்டபின் க்ரிஸ் அந்த சிறிய உருவத்தை தன் மற்ற வகுப்பு தோழர்களைவிட சிறப்பாக வரைந்திருந்தான். அந்த கோமாளித்தனமானபுதிய ஆசிரியருடன் (ஓவியம்) வரைவது அவனுக்கு பிடித்திருந்ததால் அவன் வரைவதை நிறுத்தவில்லை. இரவு, படுக்கைக்கு செல்லுமுன் அவன் அந்த புதிய ஆசிரியருக்கு (ஓவியத்திற்கு), தனக்கு வரைய கற்றுத் new தந்ததற்கு மனதார நன்றி தெரிவித்தான்.

“But I didn’t do anything!” answered the little drawing.”Don’t you see that you’ve been practising a lot, and enjoying it all the while? I bet that’s the first time you’ve done that!”Chris stopped to think. The truth was that he had drawn so badly because he had never practised more than ten minutes at a time. He had always done it angrily. So, what the little drawing had said was correct. “You are correct, but, thank you,” he said.He carefully kept the pencil in his school bag before going to sleep.

“நான் எதுவும் செய்யவில்லையே!” என்றது அந்த சிறிய ஓவியம். அது மேலும், . .”நீ நன்றாக பயிற்சி செய்தாய், அதை மகிழ்ச்சியோடு செய்தாய் அல்லவா? இதுதான் முதல் முறை நீ அவ்வாறு செய்திருக்கிறாய் என்று நான் பந்தயமே கட்டுவேன்!” என்றது. க்ரிஸ் யோசிப்பதற்காக நின்றபொழுது, அந்த உண்மை புலப்பட்டது. அது யாதெனில், ஒரே சமயத்தில்அவன் பத்து நிமிடத்திற்கு மேல் தொடர்ந்து பயிற்சி செய்யாததால்தான் அவனால் சிறப்பாக வரைய இயலவில்லை. அவன் எப்போதும் ஒரு கோபத்துடனே அந்த பணியை செய்து வந்தான். எனவே, அந்த சிறிய ஓவியம் கூறியது சரிதான். “நீ கூறுவது சரியே. அதற்கு உனக்கு நன்றி”என அவன் கூறினான். தான் உறங்குமுன் அந்த பென்சிலை பத்திரமாக தன் பள்ளிக்கூட கையில் வைத்துக் கொண்டான்.

The next morning Chris jumped out of bed and went running to find his pencil, but it was not there. He searched everywhere, but there was no sign of it. The sheet of paper on which he had drawn The little figure, although still full of rubbing out marks, was completely blank. Chris was worried and he did not know if he had spent the previous afternoon talking with me the little man or whether he was dreaming all of it. So, to settle the matter, he took a pencil and paper and tried to draw a little man.

மறுநாள் காலை க்ரிஸ் துள்ளிக்கொண்டு தன் பென்சிலை தேடினான். ஆனால் அது இல்லை . எல்லா இடங்களிலும் அவன் தேடிப்பார்த்தான்ஆனால் அதற்கான தடயமே இல்லை. அவனுடைய அழித்தல்கள் நிறைந்த தடங்களை கொண்ட காகிதம் மட்டும். இருந்தது. ஆனால் அது அசிறியஓவியமின்றி, வெற்றுக் காகிதமாக இருந்தது. க்ரிஸ் மிகவும் வருத்தத்துடன், தான் நேற்று மதியம் பேசிக்கொண்டிருந்த சிறிய மனிதரஉண்மையில்வந்தவரா? அல்லது கனவா? என்று அவனுக்கு விளங்கவில்லை எனவே இந்த விஷயத்தை முடிப்பதற்காக, அவன் மறுபடி ஒரு பென்சிலையும், பேப்பரையும் எடுத்து அந்த சிறிய மனிதரை (ஓவியத்தை வரைய முயற்சித்தான்.

It turned out not bad at all, except for a couple of rough lines. He imagined his little teacher telling him to rub and fix them. Chris gladly rubbed out those bits and redrew them. He realised that the crazy little teacher had been right: it made no difference whether you had The magic pencil or not. To learn to do things,you only needed to keep trying and to enjoy while doing so.From that day on, whenever Chris tried to draw or paint, or do anything else, he always had fun imagining his drawing telling him “Come on my Friend do me bit better than that! I can’t go out looking like this!”

ஒரு சில கோடுகளைத் தவிர, ஓவியம் நன்றாகவே வந்தது. அவனுடைய சிறிய ஆசிரியர், அவனுக்குஅழித்து, வரைவது பற்றி சொல்லித் தருவது போல் கற்பனை செய்து கொண்டான். க்ரிஸ் அந்த சில கோடுகளை அழித்துவிட்டு, மீண்டும் வரைந்தான். அவனுடைய சிறிய ஆசிரியர் கூறியது சரியே! உங்களிடம் மாய பென்சில் இருக்கிறதோ இல்லையோ, வேண்டும், அதுவும் சந்தோஷத்துடன் செய்ய வேண்டும்ஒரு செயலை அறிவதற்கு நீங்கள் தொடர்ந்து முயல என்பதே அது! அன்றிலிருந்து,. எப்பொழுதெல்லாம் க்ரிஸ் வரைவதற்கோ, வண்ணம் பூசவோமுயலும்போதெல்லாம் அவனுடைய கற்பனையில் அந்த ஓவியம் அவனிடம் “வா, நண்பா என்னை முன்பு வரைந்ததைவிட சிறப்பாய் வரை. இது போன்ற தோற்றத்துடன்என்னால் வெளியில் செய்ய இயலாது” என கூறுவதுபோல்தோன்றும்.

The Wooden Toy Summary in English and Tamil

Once there was a village circled by mountains and many big trees. It was the home to many wild animals, especially wild dogs. They used to hunt not only the animals in the forest but, also the domestic animals in the village. This affected the farmer who lived near the edge of the forest with his son the most.

ஒரு காலத்தில் மலைகளாலும், மரங்களாலும் சூழப்பட்ட ஒரு கிராமம் இருந்தது. அது பல காட்டு விலங்குகளின் குறிப்பாக காட்டுநாய்களின்-இல்லமாக திகழ்ந்த து. அந்த காட்டு நாய்கள் வனவிலங்குகளை மட்டுமல்லாது கிராமத்தில் வளர்க்கப்பட்டுவந்த வீட்டு விலங்குகளையும் வேட்டையாடும். காட்டோரம் தன் மகனுடன் வாழ்ந்து வந்த ஒரு விவசாயியை இது வெகுவாக பாதித்தது.

Mugund was the son of the farmer. He was good at creating many things. Every day he went into the forest to collect dry wood. He used to make dolls using the dry wood. Mugund’s art was very famous in the town. Children used to play with his dolls, mostly known as marapachi bommai.

முகுந்த் என்பது அந்த விவசாயியின் மகனின் பெயராகும். அவன் பல பொருட்களை உருவாக்குவதில் சிறந்து விளங்கினான். தினமும் காட்டிற்கு சென்று காய்ந்த விறகுகளை அவன் கொண்டு வருவான். அவற்றை உபயோகப்படுத்தி பொம்மைகளை தயாரிப்பான். அவனுடைய கலை அந்த நகரத்தில் மிகவும் பிரபலமானது. அவன் தயாரிக்கும் பொம்மைகளுக்கு “மரப்பாச்சி பொம்மை” என்றுபெயராகும். அவற்றுடன் குழந்தைகள் விளையாடுவர்.

Long ago, the wild animals hunted Mugund’s mother. That incident made Mugund hate wild animals. In memory of his mother, he carved a wooden statue of his mother and prayed every day. One night, he woke to hear his mother’s words, “Do your part in eradicating the use of plastics through your art because plastic is a great risk to the environment.”

வெகு காலத்திற்கு முன், முகுந்தின் – தாயார் வனவிலங்குகளால் வேட்டையாடப்பட்டார். அந்தசம்பவம், வனவிலங்குகளை முகுந்த் வெறுப்பதற்கு
காரணமாய் அமைந்தது. தன் தாயாரின் நினைவாக, அவன் மரத்தினால் தனது தாயின் சிலையைச் செய்து அதை தினமும் வணங்கி வந்தான். ஒரு நாள் இரவு, தன் தாயாரின் குரல் ஒலித்ததை கேட்டு உறக்கத்திலிருந்துஎழுந்தான். அந்தக் குரல் “உன் பங்களிப்பாக, பிளாஸ்டிக் பொருட்களின் உபயோகத்தை, உன் கலையின் மூலம் ஒழித்து விடு, ஏனெனில் பிளாஸ்டிக் சுற்றுச்சூழலுக்கு ஆபத்து விளைவிப்பதாகும்” எனஒலித்தது.

So, he started selling wooden toys at a cheap rate He was also clever at making handicrafts. He learnt the art from his grandfather. In the beginning, he made dolls for children, using dry wood. Then, he was making statues of any photo that was show to him.

அதனால், அவன் குறைந்த விலையில் மரப்பொம்மைகளை விற்கத் துவங்கினான். அவன் கைவினை பொருட்களை தயாரிப்பதிலும் நிபுணனாக இருந்தான், இதை அவன் தன் பாட்டனாரிடமிருந்து கற்று இருந்தான். முதலில், காய்ந்த மரத்துண்டுகளில் விறகுகளில் குழந்தைகளுக்கான பொம்மைகள் செய்யத் தொடங்கினான் அவன். பிறகு அவன் | தன்னிடம் காண்பிக்கப்படும் எந்த ஒரு புகைப்படத்திலும் உள்ள ஓர் உருவம் போல சிலைகள் செய்யத் துவங்கினான்.

His father owned nothing but a flock of sheep and a piece of land. Also, he worked hard to keep the farm running. He was rearing some animals like goat, cow and hen. His father took all the cattle to pasture every day. When he returned home, he would always count all the animals. One day, when his father returned, he saw that some animals were missing. His father was unable to sleep because the losses of the animals kept increasing. Mohan was worried about his father.He had to do something.

அவனது தந்தையாரிடம் சிறு ஆட்டு மந்தையும், சிறிது நிலமும் இருந்தது. அவர் கடுமையாய் உழைத்து தன் பண்ணையை நடத்தி வந்தார். அவர் ஆடு, பசு மற்றும் கோழி போன்றவற்றை வளர்த்து வந்தார். தினமும் அவற்றை மேய்ச்சலுக்கு அழைத்து செல்லும்அவர், வீடு திரும்பியதும் அவற்றை கணக்கெடுப்பார். ஒருநாள், அவர் இல்லம் திரும்பியதும் அவற்றில் சில குறைந்திருப்பதை கண்டார். விலங்குகளின் இழப்பு அதிகரிக்க, அதிகரிக்க, அவரால் உறங்க முடியாமல் போனது. தன் தந்தையை நினைத்து கவலைப்பட்ட முகுந்த், ஏதாவது செய்ய வேண்டுமென முடிவெடுத்தான்.

He had an idea. He made a wooden drum because the massive noise from the drum would help his father to drive out the wild animals. Mugund’s father was happy because the drum threatened the animals. But, the animals came as soon as someone stopped drumming. His father could not be awake all night. Soon, the wild animals started attacking only at night. The restlessness and worry made the father ill.

அவனுக்கு ஒரு யோசனை வந்தது. மரத்தாலான ஒரு முரசு அவனால் தயாரிக்கப்பட்டது. ஏனெனில் முரசிலிருந்து வரும்பெரும் சப்தம், காட்டு விலங்குகளை விரட்டிவிரட்டி அடிக்க, அவன் தந்தைக்கு உதவும் என நினைத்தான். அந்த முரசு, காட்டு விலங்குகளை பயமுறுத்துவதைக் கண்டு அவன் தந்தை மகிழ்ந்தார்.ஆயினும், முரசின் ஓசை நின்றவுடன் மறுபடியும் அவை வர ஆரம்பித்துவிட்டன. இரவு நேரம் அவரால் விழித்திருக்க முடியாதபொழுது அவை தாக்க ஆரம்பித்துவிட்டன. இதனால் அந்த உளைச்சலாலும், கவலையாலும் அவன் தந்தை நோய்வாய்பட்டார்.

Mugund felt that his mother was still living in each tree. At last, they found some wood and brought it home. Mugund went to bed a little early. His father was beating the drums to drive all the animals

மறுநாள் காட்டிற்கு சென்ற முகுந்த் அங்கு ஏதாவது உட்புறம் காலியான தேவதாரு மரத்துண்டுகிடைக்குமா? என தேடினான். ஆனால், அது போல ஒரு மரத்துண்டு அவனுக்கு கிடைக்கவில்லை. ஒரு மரத்தையே வெட்டி தனக்கு வேண்டிய உட்குழிவான பகுதியை செய்து கொள்ளலாம் என அவனது நண்பன் சொன்னான். ஆனால் முகுந்த் மறுத்துவிட்டான். தன்தாயார் இன்னும் ஒவ்வொரு மரத்திலும் வாழ்வதாக முகுந்த் எண்ணினான். கடைசியில் அவர்களுக்கு ஏதோ ஒரு மரத்துண்டு கிடைத்தது. அதை வீட்டிற்கு அவர்கள் கொண்டு வந்தனர். away.முகுந்த் சீக்கிரம் உறங்கச் சென்றுவிட்டான். அவன் தந்தை விலங்குகளை விரட்டுவதற்கு முரசை ஒலித்துக் கொண்டே இருந்தார்.

Suddenly the sounds of the drum stopped. Mugund’s father was tired, and he slept. Nearly twenty-five animals got attacked that night. Then, Mugund thought of designing some wooden tigers and some wooden people to place on the farm. So, the animals would be afraid as the people were still awake.

முகுந்தின் தந்தை களைப்பில் உறங்கிவிட்டதால் திடீரென முரசின் ஓசை நின்றது. அன்றிரவு 25 விலங்குகள் வேட்டையாடப்பட்டன. அதனால், மரத்தினால் சில புலிகளையும், மனிதர்களையும் 9″ செய்து பண்ணையில் வைப்பதற்கு முகுந்த் திட்டமிட்டான். ஏனெனில், மனிதர்கள்விழித்திருப்பதை கண்டால் மிருகங்கள் அஞ்சும் அல்லவா?

The Mistaken Plate Summary in English and Tamil

Once upon a time, there lived a merchant who sold things made of brass and tin. He used to travel across the rivers and mountains to sell. He usually travelled with another merchant, who also sold things made of brass and tin. They also used to buy things made of different metals to melt and use. The second merchant was always greedy as he tried to pay as less as possible.

ஒரு காலத்தில் பித்தளை மற்றும் தகரத்தில் ஆன பொருட்களை விற்பனை செய்யும் ஒரு வியாபாரிவசித்து வந்தார். அவர் மலைகளையும், நதிகளையும் மற்றொரு வியாபாரியுடன் கடந்து சென்று பயணித்து, பொருட்களை விற்று வந்தார். பல உலோகங்களால் செய்யப்பட்டவைகளையும் வாங்கி, உருக்கி, அவர்கள் உபயோகித்து வந்தனர். இதில், அந்த இரண்டாவதுவியாபாரி எப்போதும் பேராசை கொண்டவராகவும், எதையு குறைந்தவிலைக்கேவாங்கமுயலுபவராகவுமஇருந்தார்.

One day, when they went to a town, they divided the streets of the town. They did not want to disturb each other while selling. They moved through the streets they had chosen and called, “Utensils made of brass and tin for sale!”

ஒரு நாள் அவர்கள் ஒரு நகரத்திற்கு செல்கையில், தாங்கதாங்கள் வியாபாரம் செய்வதற்கான தெருக்களைபிரித்துக்கொண்டு, ஒருவர் பணியில் மற்றவர் “குறுக்கிடாமல் “பித்தளை, தகர பாத்திரங்கள் விற்பனைக்கு” என கூவிக்கொண்டே சென்றனர்.

In an old house, there lived a woman and her grand daughter. They were once a wealthy family but now lived in poverty. They only had one plate left as a memory of their wealth. The grandmother had kept the plate in memory of her husband.

தன் பேத்தியுடன், ஒரு கிழவி ஒரு பழைய வீட்டில் வசித்து வந்தார். செல்வ வளம் மிக்க குடும்பத்தினராய் ஒரு காலத்தில் இருந்த அவர்கள், தற்சமயம் வறுமையில் வாடினர். தங்கள் பழைய கால ஞாபகமாக அவர்களிடம் ஒரே ஒரு தட்டு மட்டும் இருந்தது. தன் கணவரின் ஞாபகமாக அந்த தட்டை கிழவி வைத்திருந்தார்.

The greedy merchant passed this house saying, “Utensils made of brass and tin for sale!”.

பேராசை குணம் கொண்ட வியாபாரி, அந்த வீட்டை கடக்கும் பொழுது “பித்தளை, தகர பாத்திரங்கள்விற்பனைக்கு” என கூவிக்கொண்டே சென்றார்.

The granddaughter heard him and said to her grand mother, “Ammama, please buy something for me.”

“அம்மம்மா! எனக்கு ஏதாவது வாங்கித் தாருங்கள்” என பேத்தி தன் பாட்டியிடம் கேட்டாள்.

She replied, “Kanna, we do not have money to buy anything. We do not have anything to trade with.” The grand daughter said, “We have that one old plate that we don’t use. Let’s see what the merchant will offer for it. we can get something we can use.”,

“நம்மிடம் கொடுத்து வாங்க பணமும், மாற்றிக்கொள்ள பொருளும் இல்லையே!” என பாட்டி, பேத்தியிடம் கூறினார். அதற்கு பேத்தி, “நாம் உபயோகப்படுத்தாத ஒரு பழைய தட்டு உள்ளதே, அதற்கு வியாபாரி என்ன தருகிறார் என கேட்போம். அதற்கு பதிலாக, நம் உபயோகத்திற்கேற்ற பொருளை பெற்றுக்கொள்வோம்” என்றாள்.

Ammama called the merchant and showed him the plate. She asked, “Will you take this plate and aive any of your utensils?” The man took the plate and scratched it with a needle. He found that it was a golden plate. He said, “What is it worth? Not even one rupee.” He threw the plate on the ground and walked away.

அம்மம்மா (பாட்டி அந்த வியாபாரியை அழைத்து அவரிடம் அந்த தட்டைக் காட்டி “இதை எடுத்துக் கொண்டு, உன்னிடமுள்ள ஏதாவது பாத்திரங்களை பொருளை) தருகிறாயா?” என்று கேட்டார். அந்த வியாபாரி தட்டை எடுத்து அதை ஓர் ஊசியினால் கீறிப் பார்த்தான். அது தங்கத்தால் ஆனது என புரிந்துகொண்டான். (ஆயினும்) “இது ஒரு ரூபாய்க்கு கூடத் தேறாது” என கூறி அதை தரையில் வீசிவிட்டு சென்று விட்டான்.

Both the merchants completed their streets. They had decided that either of them could go to any house that the other did not sell in. The first merchant passed the same old house and called, “Utensils made of brass and tin for sale!”.

தெருக்களில் தங்கள் வியாபாரம் முடிந்ததும், வியாபாரிகள் இருவரும் ஒருவருக்கொருவர்பேசிக்கொண்டு, மற்றவர் சென்று விற்க முடியாத ஏதாவது ஒரு வீட்டிற்கு சென்று, வியாபாரம் செய்ய எண்ணினர். அதன்படி, முதல் வியாபாரி, (பேராசை கொண்ட) இரண்டாவது வியாபாரி சென்ற அதே வீட்டிற்கு சென்று “பித்தளை, தகர பாத்திரங்கள்விற்பனைக்கு” என கூவினான்.

The little girl again asked her Ammama to check. She said “Kanna the first merchant threw the plate and went away. I have nothing else to offer.” The girl replied, “Grandma, that merchant was angry. This merchant looks nice. Maybe we will get something.”

அந்த சிறுமி மறுபடியும் தன் பாட்டியிடம் அந்த வியாபாரியை அழைத்து கேட்கச் சொன்னாள். அவளது பாட்டியோ, “கண்ணா , முதல் வியாபாரி அந்த தட்டை தூக்கி எறிந்துவிட்டு சென்றான். வேறு எதுவும் என்னிடம் இல்லையே?,” என்றார். அதற்கு அந்த சிறுமி, தன் பாட்டியிடம் “பாட்டி, முதலில் வந்த அந்த வியாபாரி கோபக்காரர். இந்த வியாபாரி நல்லவராக தோன்றுகிறார். இவரிடம் நமக்கு ஏதாவது கிடைக்கும்” என்று கூறினாள்.

Ammama asked the girl to call the merchant and show the plate. The merchant took the plate in his hands and found that it was made of gold. He said, “I am not rich enough to buy this plate. This is a gold plate.” Ammama said, “Are you sure? This is gold? The other merchant threw this on the and ground went away.”

அம்மம்மா (பாட்டி தன் பேத்தியிடம் கூறி அந்த காட்டினார். அதை தன் கைகளில் வாங்கிய வியாபாரி, அதை சோதித்து அது தங்கத்தால் ஆனது என தெரிந்து’ கொண்டார். “இதை வாங்கும் அளவிற்கு நான் பணக்காரனில்லை. இது தங்க தட்டாகும்” என்றார். அம்மம்மா அந்த வியாபாரியிடம் “இது உண்மையிலேயே தங்க தட்டு என்கிறீர்களா? அந்த வியாபாரி இதை தரையில் வீசிவிட்டு சென்றாரே?” என்று கேட்டார்.

The merchant said, “I do not know why he did that. If you wish to sell it take all the dishes you want.”The little girl took some dishes of her choice but, the merchant was not happy. So, he gave all his money, his donkey, his cart and his wares to Ammama. He only kept eight rupees for the ferry home.

அதற்கு அந்த வியாபாரி “அவர் ஏன் அவ்வாறு செய்தார் என எனக்கு தெரியாது. நீங்கள் விரும்பினால்இந்த தட்டை எனக்கு விற்று உங்களுக்கு தேவையான அனைத்து (பித்தளை / தகர) பாத்திரங்களையும் எடுத்துக் கொள்ளுங்கள்” என்றார். அந்த சிறுமியும் சிலb பாத்திரங்களைஎடுத்துக்கொண்டாள். இதில் அந்த வியாபாரிக்கு திருப்தி ஏற்படவில்லை . எனவே, அவர், தான் வீடு சென்று சேர்வதற்கு படகில் செல்ல தேவையான எட்டு ரூபாயை மட்டும் வைத்துக்கொண்டு தன்னிடமிருந்த பணம்,கழுதை, வண்டி மற்றும் பாத்திரங்கள் அனைத்தையும் அம்மம்மாவிடம் கொடுத்துவிட்டார். –

He quickly went towards the river. He paid the eight rupees to the boatman to take him across the river. Soon, the greedy merchant went back to the old house. He called the girl and said, “I’ve changed my mind. I will give you ten rupees for it.” Ammama said, “You considered the plate worthless, but another merchant has paid a huge price for it and took it.”

பிறகு, அவர் (தட்டை பெற்றுக்கொண்டு உடனே நதிக்கு சென்று படகோட்டியிடம் எட்டு ரூபாயைக்கொடுத்துவிட்டு, நதியின் மறுகரையில் கடந்து சென்று தன்னைவிட்டு விடும்படி கூறினார். அதற்கு சற்று நேராநேரத்திற்குள், அந்த பேராசைக்கார வியாபாரி பழைய வீட்டிற்கு சென்றார். அந்த சிறுமியை அவர் அழைத்து “நான் என் மனதை மாற்றிக் கொண்டேன். உனக்கு நான் பத்து ரூபாய் தருகிறேன் (தட்டுக்காக)” என்றுகூறினார். “நீங்கள் – அந்த தட்டுக்கு ஒரு மதிப்புமில்லை என்கிறீர்கள். ஆனால், மற்றொருவர் அதற்குபெரும்தொகை கொடுத்து பெற்றுச் சென்றுவிட்டார்” என்றார் அம்மம்மா.
