This story is set in a small African lif, Kumansenu. In a small mud house a widow Bola used to live with her seven years granddaughter Asi. Her son Megi was in government job as a clerk. Bola gave birth of six children but all of them were died. When Bola was preparing food Asi was skipping outside.
Suddenly Bola saw her son inside the house and became so much excited. But Meji made promise to Bola not to tell about his arrival to anyone.
Life is Sweet in Kumansenu by Desiree Sourbeer on Prezi
His neck was tied with red handkerchief and Meji had hoarse voice. He said he was tired much so wanted to take rest. He slept whole day to next Saturday morning.
When Bola went to market Meji took his daughter for a long walk up to hill secretly. Asi asked many questions to father he cunningly answered them. After the offer to graveyard they came back home secretly. Bola asked Meji about bad smell of dead body in the room that Meji convinced her telling that it might be dead rat. At night there was heavy rain.
In locked door Bola saw Meji out but not wet in the rain. Addai told Bola brought Lord gave birth him and he took back. As Meji taught Asi how to open gold locket. Asi could unlock it. They all became surprised about his arrival there. Despite of him Bola felt very happy getting chance of giving birth of such son dweet gave him chance to born again. As Meji died at the age of 30 and his spirit visited her.
The spirit had come to thank for giving birth and a chance to live a short and sweet life. It might be trying to id the superstitious cultural tradition of African country. Form the cultural and spiritual aspects the story is heart melting. It figures out about life-affirming character of African people. Beside cultural exercise there are many more disagreeable points.
How can a person present as a spirit after death? Do present world people have such faith about mumansenu
The spiritual aspect given in the story is unacceptable in this scientific age. I have a lot from the people about their kumansrnu with ghosts, spirit etc.
We have read such supernatural concept in many texts. This story reminded me my villagers who believe that after death spirit, comes to house and scares the people much like Nepali superstitious people the people of Africa believe on spirit, rebirth and such thing.
For the love and care of old mother Meji had also left his seven years lovely daughter, Asi with Bola. He had sacrificed his love to Asi and hopen to give children love to Bola. There is strong bond of love from son to mother and vice-versa. Meji, as a spirit had come not to scare Bola as their culture interpretation. He had come to thank her for giving short still sweet life for him. He was presented there not physically rather spiritually.
Form another angle we can easily say that this story has captured the gratitude of children to their parents. When Bola and Meji met they showed a strong spiritual bond of love between them.

Even though Bola lost her single son still she was proud of her such ideal son. Thus, in conclusion we can say that this African-Culture base story is really about the power of love and the gratitude of children to their parents.
