An Astrologer's Day by Gage Massey on Prezi
One of the first conflicts in this story involves the main character, the Astrologer. People think he is a fake and therefore don't partake in his study and in attending his tent. He also has problems with the neighboring vendors. This is an example of external conflict against society and its struggles. The Astrologer finally has a chance to resolve this conflict when Guru Nayak trusts him enough to pay for a reading.
After giving the reading, the Astrologer goes home with the money and his wife overjoyed says "I can buy some jaggery and coconut tomorrow Another conflict involves Guru Nayak, the other main character in this story. Nayak wants to find out who attacked him and get revenge against the person. This is an external conflict although sometimes when the emotions get to him, it might turn internal.
