‘’Oh! My money is at your disposal, use it at your need and if you can’t return it then don’t bother to return it’’, this was always used by thebenevolent Mark. ’’No! You can’t have my money if you won’t pledge to return it and pay interest’’, these lines of hate and authority was used by the atrocious Barner.
How different these money lenders from Bringingham were, their difference was greater than the repel of North Pole and South Pole. Mark gave more than what he got. Barner got what he gave. Mark was a real gentleman while Barner was a boor. Mark was the light of hope for the economically challenged while Barner was the darkness of fear. For people mark was their Oxygen, they were able to breathe in his presence due to his kind nature and philanthropic attitude. Barner was their toxic gas. They would suffocate because his of relentlessbehavior and attitude. For the people, Mark’s house was paradise and Burner’s house was haunted. As a result, Mark was popular among everyone while Barner interacted with other atrocious money lenders.
Mark had a plan to increase his income by taking up trading. Barner wanted to become more prosperous by increasing his interests to an unpayable level. The people requested Mark to work with Barner so that he would decrease his interests. It was a painful decision but Mark agreed to do it for the welfare of the people. However, you can uproot a sapling but you can’t uproot a tree. Mark was able to work with Barner but was unable to convince him.
Mark and Barner were earning their money in their respected means but Mark never forgets to give money. In fact, he constructed a new school for poor and underprivileged people.
One fine day a disaster struck. The ships in which mark had invested had crashed. Also, some ruffians had robbed him out of his riches. The same ruffians had robbed Barner. These ruffians fled the state being contented with what they got. Barner and Mark were very distraught. Both of them will reap what they sowed. The entire state had marched to Mark and supported him with a large sum of money. This was not alike for Barner. Not even his friends had supported him, but they had ignored him. Many people journeyed to Burner’s house to tell him that he gets what he gave. He gave hate, he gets hate. Whereas Mark gave support and he got it back. Thus, The Giver got what he gave.
