He was suspicious of strangers

When Bibek met strangers he doubted everything they said. When he could, he interrogated them, asking where they were from, what their father did there, and why they came to Oyam. They were guilty unless proven otherwise, but Bibek had an open mind. They could be guilty of anything, crimes from which they had fled, crimes they planned to commit, being an undercover policeman, being a spy for the agricultural agency, or being an angel, god, or goddess in disguise with a mission to test the morality of poor Bibek. At least Bibek didn’t waste too much energy with his suspicions because very few strangers ever came to Oyam.
