Nagendra Natha Datta is about to travel by boat. It is the month Joisto (May - June), the time of storms. His wife, Surja Mukhi, had adjured him, saying, "Be careful; if a storm arises be sure you fasten the boat to the shore. Do not remain in the boat."

Inland, husbandmen were driving the plough, beating the oxen, lavishing abuse upon them, in which the owner shared.
The book is important because it reflects a trend, especially in microelectronics manufacture toward recyclability.
