This continued over a time spand of over a moth but over the Tim the child's behavior started to change. It seemed as he was no longer himself. He started to act in a different manner. Rebelling against his father. He had demented thoughts and actions. The kid claimed that his actions were being induced by his imaginary friend.

Meaning and significance of the folktale- the point that is trying to be made is that. Wealth not at all times bring us happiness but sometimes instead it brings is sorrow. Money is not everything and we should strive to be humble instead of being greedy and soon unhappy. We should not allow for money or any material define our happiness and life.
