Jumman Sheik and Alagu Chowdari were childhood friends. they also carried out a joint-money lending business. Both of them have strong faith in each other. If one was absent other looked after the things. Such a situation occured when Jumman went on Haj and Alagu had to go abroad due to business. A common outlook and community of ideas was the secret behind this friendship. It was not based on any social and religious affinity.
