Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) had visited many countries, and travels gave inspiration for many works of the writer. The story „Naboth“ was first published in the Civil and Military Gazette on 26 August 1886. It describes relations between a European and an Indian. The narrator gave a rupee to Naboth to help him. Next day Naboth said that he wanted to establish a sweetmeat-pitch near the house of his benefactor. The narrator gave permission. In the beginning there was only Naboth and his basket, but eleven weeks later Naboth had built a hut there. The public road turned to a cess-pool because of the drainage of Naboth, and the Municipal Secretary said that the narrator must clear it away. How did the story end? Read „Naboth“ to know it.
