    Listen! we can devide it into 4 parts:

    1- A servant
    2- Always serves
    3- His master
    4- Who is faithful

    You don't know where to put "who is faithful", no. 4.
    Question: Indranil ! Does no.4 says something about servant or master?
    Are you talking about a "faithful servant" or a "faithful master"?
    Answer these questions and I will tell you more.
