Question:

Why did Bholi at first agree to an unequal match? Why did she later reject the marriage. What does this tell about her?

Answer:

Bholi agreed to the match at first to fulfil her parents’ wishes. Later on, she rejected the marriage when the bridegroom asked for dowry. This tells us that Bholi was not a timid – and dumb girl. She was aware of her rights. She also knew how to fight for her own dignity and feared no one.
