From a very young age, naren sought the truth and never accepted anything without testing and experiencing it for himself.
One of the naren’s classmates had a beautiful garden at his house, which belong to his grandfather, ramratan basu. There was a champaka tree in the garden with lovely orange-yellow flowers. Naren loved to climb this tree. Sometimes he would link his legs onto a branch and hang upside down. One day when he was swinging merrily, his friend’s grandfather came into garden. When he saw naren he was worried. At any moment the branch could break and he could fall.
Ramratan told naren to get down from the tree and never climb it again. But naren was not wiling to obey without knowing the reason. He asked the old man, “what will happen if I climb the tree?” ramratan could simply see that simple reasons were not enough to stop the boy, so he tried frightening him. He said: brahmadaitya (ghost of brahmin) lives in that tree, and at night he goes about dressed in all white. He is terrible to look at and breaks the necks of those who climb the tree.
Naren’s friends were scared when they heard about ghost, but naren knew that this was just a silly story meant to keep him from climbing the tree. He continued his usual sport
