When Jalil would leave, Nana would tell Mariam that he told rich lies, that he was merely a rich man telling rich lies. She told Mariam that he had never taken her to see the tree and that he had betrayed them both by casting them out. This foreshadows how Jalil will one day refuse her entrance to his house and then marry her off to Rasheed...........
