    RK Narayan’s story, A Horse and Two Goats, portrays a comic misunderstanding between Muni, a very poor farmer and an American businessman situated in a fictional south Indian village called Kritam. Muni is very poor with only two scraggy goats, even though he was once quite well-off. He believes that the American was trying to buy his goats when the American was actually buying the horse statue. Through this funny misunderstanding, we get to know about Muni’s cultural beliefs, especially about the villagers regarding the horse statue. The villagers believe that the redeemer will come back to save them when the world ends in the form of a horse, and hence, puts a lot of faith on the infamous horse statue. Though at the end both men ends up getting what they wanted, the contrast between the two men has been shown by viewing them as materialistic and spiritualist.
