Answer: As Ramlal was a government official and the Tehsildar had asked Ramlal to send his daughters to the new school in his village. Bholi was sent to school just to satisfy the Tehsildar. As Ramlal’s wife felt that sending girls to school affected their marriage prospects adversely, she did not want to send any of her daughter’s to school. However, Bholi, with her pock-marked face and her dull brain could not be possible to get married anyway, so Bholi’s parents decided to send her to school to satisfy the Tehsildar.
