This is the fourth part of a series of trivia quizzes on Byomkesh Bakshi. This quiz is based on the story, Khunji Khunji Nari. If you’ve read the story or seen the television episode, then you should have no trouble answering these questions.
1. What was the smell coming from the bottle of glue in Rameswar Ray’s room in Khunji Khunji Nari?
2. What was the main reason that Labanya, daughter-in-law of Rameswar Ray, didn’t want to employ any servants in the household?
3. Why did Rameswar Ray need to write a last will and testament document to bestow part of his property to his daughter, Nalini?
4. Nalini’s husband, Debnath mentions that there needs to be two witnesses present for a will to be legally binding in Bengal. Byomkesh mentions that there is an exception. What is it?
5. Where was the letter which Rameswar Ray sent to Byomkesh and Ajit misplaced?
1. The smell of pureed onions which Rameswar Ray used to write “invisibly” with.
2. Labanya was afraid that Rameswar Ray would reestablish regular communication with his daughter-in-law Nalini.
3. The story is based before the Hindu Succession Acts of 1956 and 2005, by which a daughter is equally entitled to inherit her father’s estate. If Rameswar Ray didn’t write it out in his will, his daughter would not inherit anything.
4. If the person wanting his or her last will and testament enacted writes it out completely in his or her handwriting it is valid.
