2/25 Ma'Shingayi is depressed and left broken after the loss of her son and now Tambu. She takes out her rage and blams Maiguru. On pg 176 Ma'Shingayi exclaims, "Maiguru! Must you sit on the floor? Yet there are chairs?" Ma'Shingayi wants to prove that Maiguru is a wealthy snob who is used to sitting in fancy chairs instead of the dirty floor. She becomes even more angry when Maiguru declines that chair because Ma'Shingayi could not prove her point.
