This essay is about a character named Ranga from The Edge by RK Narayan Ranga was a product of his environment being born into poverty he never really had a chance to be successful He stayed in an abandoned building called Krishnas Hall while he worked at his knife sharpening business He was a hard worker and did his best to bring home enough rupees to maintain a living for his daughter and rather difficult wife He sharpened knives scythes clippers and more with a portable grinding apparatus he made out of an old cycle wheel connected to a foot pedal He had to be watchful and use different strategies in order to catch some of his customers at the right time Overall Ranga was a relaxed person He never let things bother him too much At times he had to deal with customers who were rude and did not want to be bothered by him Sometimes they would say Go away we have nothing to grind but he always persisted until someone produced a rusty knife or some other blade to be sharpened He was good at coaxing people and could be aggressive when he needed Ranga was very motivated his customers loved his banter and appreciated his work which he always guaranteed for sixty days He never argued with his customers he liked them to feel as if they had won a point so that he could look forward to their continued business After all he says It costs nothing only a few more turns of the wheel and a couple of sparks off the stone to please the eye Ranga physically dwelt in the town but his thoughts were always centered around his home in the village where his daughter was growing up under the care of his difficult wife Despite Rangas relaxed lifestyle his home environment was always stressful due to the fact that his wife was difficult to live with
