In Chapter Four, Dadi is able to express some tenderness toward Shabanu with his gift of bangles. Perhaps it is his way of saying, "Don't worry. I won't sell Guluband." Alternatively, perhaps it is how he makes up for what he will do. Either way, it illuminates his character, showing that he is a loving father, one who must be harsh at times because they live in a harsh environment. This scene foreshadows the one to come where he will sell Guluband.
