This went on for a long time, till finally the people fed up of being cheated, complained to Haripant.

He gave Niranjan a choice of punishmentdrink the five barrels of adulterated ghee, from his shop, or receive a hundred lashings, or pay a thousand gold (cqins .to the treasury. Niranjan thought for a while. Losing a thousand gold coins was too much and a hundred lashings too painful. So he decided to drink the live barrels of ghee. Though Niranjan sold adulterated goods in his shop; he made sure his own food was of the best quality.

But he was pampered and his body was unused to any harsh treatment. After ten lashes, he started trembling and by twenty he was giddy. 'Stop!' he screamed. 'I will pay the thousand gold coins!' And he handed them over.
