The philosopher liked the quiet corner in the grave yard for his heavy reading and subsequent contemplation.
He was reading of Gandhi’s love for his goat as he sighted the goat. Hallucinating; the goat was still there when he next raised his eye from the book; this one is real, but how did it enter in to this fenced area – he thought.
He looked around for a breach in the fence.
There was a small shanty built by a new migrant to the city in the far corner. The goat was ready cash, next Bakr-id for the poor migrants.

On the occasion of Bakr-id, Muslims sacrifice a goat in admiration of prophet Ibrahim’s faith in Allah. This sacrifice is known as qurbani. Consequently the prices of goats rise substantially.
