The story represents a cultural clash through Muni, who is simple villager from South India and the American businessman. The American man speaks English and thereby expects Muni to also speak it. This is a thought of a privileged class. Belonging to a poor family, Muni does not have the luxury to learn English and hence, is unable to understand what the businessman was telling him. This culture clash results in both men not understanding each other and trying to express themselves to sign language and pointing at random objects. Despite trying to understand the language the conversation leads to misunderstanding. While Muni believed that the man was going to buy his goats, the man was actually buying the horse statue.
