Greed for money through bribes overpowers a cop to such an extent that he targets his early benefactor whose stay-in domestic help he was for five years in his younger days (in ‘That Woman’s Curse’). The owner of a jackfruit tree, with copper-shaded leaves, plants mercury at its roots to destroy the brunette flourishing on the borderline as he fears it might pass on to a new owner of the neighbouring plot (in ‘Jackfruit Tree’). A father known for his very honest ways is severely upset when his son falls almost irrevoply for income from bribes, which his government office was known for (in ‘Bitter Taste’). Crafty Panikkar is bent on annexing his adjacent farm owned by Nair, a childhood friend, to whom he gives a series of loans, which he knows neighbour Nair cannot repay (in ‘Neighbour’s Farm’). In the fifth episode, Kaaroor recreates a folk tale and titles it ‘Old Tales Don’t Die’ to show that greed of a pathological type has perennial relevance.
