    The theme of ‘poverty’ is prevalent in the story, especially through the portrayal of the character, Sibia. Sibia, just like the other Gujar women, suffers from the pangs of poverty. She herself is described as a “thin starveling child dressed in an earth-coloured rag.” She is unable to afford any luxury and the only thing she hopes to get is a blue bead.
