Describe the character  of Sidda

,Sidda  has been presented within the story as a real servant that is accountable to the Sivasanker Describe the character  of Sidda


,Sidda  has been presented within the story as a real servant that is accountable to the Sivasankerhousehold and a dependable and continual friend of Leela. He performed all his works faithfully and took treatment of Leela. He’d an excellent skill that is imaginative. From his imagination, he built up stories that enthralled Leela. He had the power that made her think that he’d the ability to regulate the moon. He had no curiosity about scientific studies and learnt nothing that Leela tried to teach him. He also had no standard concept and simple tips to prove himself innocent as he ended up being accused of taking the string. He remained speechless throughout and became the prey of cruel justice because he belonged to lower course whose voice is not heard.



How did Leela attempt to teach Sidda?

Answer) Leela utilized to create Sidda squat on the floor by having a pencil between their fingers as well as a catalog in front of him. She then used to command him to write down on the copy and Sidda had to make an effort to duplicate whatever Leela typed in the pages. When Sidda would not duplicate Leela’s writing and drawings, Leela would rebuke Sidda and redouble her efforts to teach him. But Sidda was pinned to his seat to learn, till his rigid wrist cracked. Though he had a great ability to Control the Moon, he was incompetent at learning that Leela used to keep. Sidda then managed himself free to say her to dinner and that would end the school hour.


What message is convened by Mr. Sivasanker’s final statement in the story?


why did they not agree to engage sidda in the house again? 

Sidda is a poor,  illiterate boy. He wandered here and there to earn his livelihood. But, when the chain was lost, the eye of suspicion fell on him. Sidda was not a thief and a criminal also. Mrs. Sivasanker suspected that he had taken away the chain.  So the honesty of Sidda was questioned. Mrs. Sivasanker was afraid of giving shelter to a criminal like sidda. Moreover, Mr. Sivasanker confirmed that Sidda had been earlier in jail for stealing jewelry from children. Even the police inspector confirmed that Sidda was a jailbird.  The information from the police gave oil to  Sivasanker’s suspicious mind. Though all the accusations against  Sidda had not any real evidence. Actually, Sidda was a sufferer under the whip of cruel law. 

What were Sidda’s responsibilities at Mr. Sivasanker’s residence? What did Sidda get in exchange for his efforts?


Sidda served as a servant at Mr. Sivasanker’s residence in R.K Narayan’s short novel Leela’s Friend. His responsibilities included washing clothes, tending to the garden, running errands, chopping wood, and caring for Leela. Sidda was paid two meals per day and four rupees per month in exchange for his labour. Because he was the house servant, he had to sleep outside the home.
Sidda began his employment at the house as a servant, but he quickly rose through the ranks to become Leela’s best friend. Despite the fact that Leela’s parents mistreated him, Leela always longed to be in his presence.

 “In any event, we couldn’t have kept a criminal like him in the house,” what does the comment imply?

Mr Sivasanker’s final statements reveal society’s class split and the upper class’s complete disregard for the poor’s feelings and sorrows. Despite the fact that Sidda did not steal Leela’s gold necklace, Mr. Sivasanker did not regret Sidda’s detention by the police, and whatever facts the inspector offered him about Sidda’s past became the basis of Mr. Sivasanker’s understanding. He stated emphatically that a criminal such as Sidda could not be maintained in the house. As a result, the rich, who are usually quick to pass judgment on the poor, deny them the opportunity to live properly and honorably.

Mr. Sivasankar, the owner of this house, had a huge dilemma over the servant problem in R. K. Narayan’s short story ‘Leela’s Friend.’ Mr. Shivasankar was thinking over the servant issue when he noticed Sidda approaching the gate. Sidda was subjected to scrutiny by the family members in order to resolve the servant’s problem. Mr. Shivasankar acknowledged by recognizing him as someone who would not be a horrible person. And he said that he had worked in an unknown doctor’s office near the market. Mrs. Sivasankar had assured him that he couldn’t possibly be as bad as any burglar. Then there’s Leela, Mr.’s five-year-old daughter. Mrs. Sivasankar yelled with delight, declaring that he would be her true playmate.

It was determined that Sidda was assigned various tasks such as cleaning clothing, tending to the garden, running errands, chopping woods, and keeping an eye on Leela. 
He was given two meals per day and four rupees per month in exchange. 
Sidda was essentially servant, as he demanded to help with many house tasks in addition to looking after Leela.

“In any case, we couldn’t have kept a criminal like him in the house.”
Who is this person who is speaking? 
What is the name of the criminal in question? 
What triggered the speaker’s remark? 

The speaker will be Mr. Sivasanker.

Sidda is the name of the culprit here.

Mr. Sivasanker went to the police station to file a report after Leela’s chain was missing and Sidda departed the house. Sidda had a criminal history, which he learnt from the police inspector there. He had already served time in prison for kidnapping and stealing children’s jewelry. Mr Sivasanker was misled and confused by the inspector’s confirmation. Leela did not exhibit any remorse when his chain was found, and he said the words.


What did Leela’s mother do after finding the gold chain in the tamarind pot? How did Leela’s father react?

When Leela’s mother discovered the gold chain in the tamarind pot, she ran it under the tap to remove the tamarind covering.

When Leela’s father learnt of the chain’s discovery, he told his wife that she was not to offer Leela any more chains. Because of her, all of the difficulties have arisen. Mr. Sivasanker had no sympathy or remorse for Sidda, who had been an innocent victim. Sidda had been wrongfully imprisoned. He would notify the inspector, but the criminal would not be allowed to remain in their home.

The police know his haunts.”

Who said this?

What were the consequences of Sidda’sdisappearance in the middle of the night?

Mr. Sivasanker, Sidda’s lord, said this as a consoling response to his wIfe 

Sidda dedicated his life to the Sivasankers’ family’s needs in exchange for two meals and four anas per day. He made up for his lack of desire by forming a company with Leela. They were emotionally bonded by her simplicity and complete reliance on Sidda. She was ecstatic to be in his company. One evening, Leela and Sidda went to the market to buy sugar in search of similar delight. “Leela’s mother discovered Leela’s gold chain gone from her neck when they returned home. Sidda was held accountable for the thievery and was threatened with being turned over to the policemen. Sidda ran as he heard this, recognizing an opportunity. Sivasanker’s doubt was confirmed by this. She informed her husband of the incident as soon as he arrived home, adding additional spices. Mr Sivasanker had no choice but to proceed to the police station and file a stolen diary complaint against Sidda. He was apprehended four days later, and his silence proved him guilty of the theft, resulting in indescribable agony for a crime he did not commit.
