हमारे स्कूलों और कॉलेजों में जिस तत्परता से फीस वसूल की जाती है, शायद मालगुजारी भी उतनी सख्ती से नहीं वसूल की जाती। महीने में एक दिन नियत कर दिया जाता है। उस दिन फीस का दाखिला होना अनिवार्य है। या तो फीस दीजिए, या नाम कटवाइए, या जब तक फीस न दाखिल हो, रोज कुछ जुर्माना दीजिए। कहीं-कहीं ऐसा भी नियम है कि उसी दिन फीस दुगुनी कर दी जाती है, और किसी दूसरी तारीख को दुगुनी फीस न दी तो नाम कट जाता है।

बरसात के दिन हैं, सावन का महीना । आकाश में सुनहरी घटाएँ छाई हुई हैं । रह - रहकर रिमझिम वर्षा होने लगती है । अभी तीसरा पहर है ; पर ऐसा मालूम हों रहा है, शाम हो गयी । आमों के बाग़ में झूला पड़ा हुआ है । लड़कियाँ भी झूल रहीं हैं और उनकी माताएँ भी । दो-चार झूल रहीं हैं, दो चार झुला रही हैं । कोई कजली गाने लगती है, कोई बारहमासा । इस ऋतु में महिलाओं की बाल-स्मृतियाँ भी जाग उठती हैं ।
