Baldeo, a tribal, works as a watchman at a small wayside signal stop , surrounded by a dense jungle. Baldeo was a watchman at a small station. He was responsible for signaling whether or not the tunnel was clear of obstruction, at night it was his duty to see that the lamp was burning, and that the overland mail passed through safely. He is an extremely brave and audacious person. He fights bravely, wounding the tiger with his axe twice. But he was a little unfortunate. The tiger in the end tears his body and puts an end to the life of poor but valiant Baldeo. He has a sense of duty too. After lighting the lamp he could have gone back, but he did not do so.
