    Marago tells the sad story of a lazy boy in an African village. It narrates how the laziness of a particular boy lead to gossip and back-lashing from the villagers. One day Marago disappeared from his house never to be seen. After a search that involved the entire community was called off, Marago's mother continued searching for her son. Never to be seen again.

    Some time ago it might have been believed that words like ‘kaffir’ and ‘ni&&er’ defined a tribe. Or else how can a tribe of people be called Bushmen or Masarwa?

    Masarwa is the equivalent of ‘ni&&er’ a term of contempt which means, obliquely, a low, filthy nation.
