Reading this, these thpoughts come to mind:

 

1.  The Queen was acting independently of her husband in a crucial matter that should have concerned them both - the wedding of their daughter. The Queen acts unilaterally, as does Raja Chitar Sen with his death sentence on his child.

2. The Queen then in order to fulfill her quest of her daughter's marriage has to defer to deceit to bring her plans to fruition. Just as the Queen did in the root story (although she was not successful).

3. The idea of the the smaller casket within a larger casket, in order to fool the King is reflected in the state that the Queen in the root story presented herself to Raja Chittar Sen.

4. It was the King who gave the death sentence unknowingly in the root story and in this story, it the King who then orders the casket(s) to be taken from the palace and distributed to the poor - given in daan. Sending a daughter off to her inlaws is also called kanya daan. By his own order he sent his daughter away from the palace to be given away.

5. Another thought that came to mind was the King was a learned man, yet prone to outbursts.

6. The smaller casket is also packed with jewels as a dowry for the girl, meaning the Queen thought of every detail. Not just in getting the daughter out of the palace but providing for her life after that.

Another thing that is implicit here is that the rani must have seen something in the young man that she found very attractive. Something that her husband lacked perhaps? That's why she was so keen to get her daughter married off to him. This must have been outside of wealth and status because the young man was disguised as a mendicant. 

 

I have to say at this point. I don't think all chariters are necessarily directly related to the over framing root tale. I've also heard that Bindra's work was essentially an English translation of a Panjabi translation. This makes me feel that we are missing important subtle nuances in the original. 

It can't be that CP is essentially a monotonous repeating of the point in the first over-arching tale. That breaks all rules of good writing. There is much more to this than a surface reading would give.

I'm not sure about that but I understnad where you are coming from. For me the thoughts of the young man in the casket tell me that he was certain his end had come. He was rueing the lack of facilities/options available to him when he was in a serious life-threatening predicament.

 

Maybe that is something that the charitar also wants to reveal?

Yes I'm beginning to think that the nature of the charitars has moved onto a more wider sphere.

We need the original. The ending sentences of this are significant too. 

I think these are political/military strategies that have been coded. Like you alluded to, this one suggests being caught out without resources by the enemy. It speaks of being prepared. 

Then when we look at the next chariter, it seems to elaborate on this. 

I don't know if we should openly discuss these any more. It might give our enemies ideas and insights that we are better off hiding from them?

I'm beginning to think that as well. There just seems to be many layer/angles to it.

Also the practice of illusion/camoflage/hidden strikes etc. It reminded me of the time Nawab Kapur Singh and a select body of Sikhs dressed as Muslims to enter a mosque where they had been told Zakaria Khan (I think) was going to perform his friday prayers.

Why have you quoted that Dal ?

Wondering exactly what the word chariter means?

Found this in an image of an old manuscript of Sukha Singh's Gurbilas:

1467393_1594381894171564_715731974349524

 

Notice how it starts:

 ਪਾਤਿਸਾਹੀ ਦਸਮੀ ਕੇ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ

Was reading "History of the Punjab" and came across this :

image.thumb.png.85d4cb29551ec5bf081b1831c866a512.png

It's a reference to how people escaped with their lives by hiding in and then being carried out in baskets. An event that we see happening in the charitars on occasion.
