The deer was pawing the rope and struggling to come out of it and scratching its neck with its hooves,in order to release itself. Since the deer was was really skinny and tender the blood marks on its neck was seen. It repeated the same thing again and again. They had good lunch after many days,there was a big fish called doncella,a kind of catfish,dipped whole in corn flour and beaten egg and deep fried,there was roe also which were the eggs of the fish and they ate that also as it is very strong and provides energy.

They were three men and one women. While sleeping one of the men asked the women how come she was so calm and did not react to the deer suffering? That time she thinks about her past and she told them about the extreme situation,which is the story of Alan Mcdonald,Alan Mcdonald was the man who was burnt by a flaming gasoline thirteen years ago and that he was burnt once again.

Here the woman talks about how Alan Mcdonald went through the suffering of operations and numerous surgeries for his face and all over his body and how the media had potrayed him when he got burnt once again. She tells the men that she has stuck the paper cutting of Alan Mcdonald on her mirror and she has been reading that everyday. Here the women compares the suffering of Alan Mcdonald with the deer and tells that both the survivors are in extreme situations fighting for their life.

Thus,in this story there is the modern civilization where people are against animal killing and they fight for the protection and rights of the animal. But eventually people end up eating them. Even in this story the four north americans sees how the deer has been suffering but did not take any step further to rescue it or protect it and when they headed for lunch they eventually ate the deer which was killed the previous night. So the women says that no one could not do anything even for the suffering of Alan Mcdonald but to feel sad Themes 1.

Loneliness: The Cactus deals with themes of loneliness. It portrays how the old couple has been left behind by their children in a large and empty house. The wife tries to fill the void her children have left behind by tending to her cacti but to little avail.

Old Age: The story goes on to show how the old couple struggles to cope with their loneliness and the large and empty house seems to add on to their struggles. Maintaining the large house and accessing the top floors add on to their struggles.

The bitterness of being left behind by their children also creeps into the dialogue they share with their prospective customers. Generation Gap: The story deals extensively with this theme. It shows not only the gap between the parents and the children but also between the younger and the older couple. The children seem distant from their parents, probably from differing worldviews and the physical distance between Karachi and the overseas. Family Politics: The older couple seem to be very distant from the rest of their family, be it their children or their extended family.

This is evident by their disdain towards their relatives in Pakistan and their reluctance to ask for help from them. Similes to the Cactus: The role of the cactus as a simile is a very important literary tool used in the story. It could be used to show the prickly nature of the old couple or to show their survival instincts in an increasingly hostile world — both of which are important features of a cactus.

They — especially the wife — try desperately to turn their lives around now that their children are not there any more. They try to shower all their attention, care and love onto plants.
