Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports.

There was nothing he wanted more than to see this man dead. “In a word, old Roger Chillingworth was a striking evidence of man’s faculty of transforming himself into a devil.” Dimmesdale, a man looked at with much respect by the townspeople, asserts his evil in many forms. He watches the woman he loves and his daughter live in shame and does nothing to help, which shows “the portion of him which the devil claimed, and through which he sought to win the rest.” Dimmesdale was the town minister who was supposed to represent the good things God gives us. But, he was said to be a servant of the “Black Man.” He watched Hester stand on the scaffold holding their child, with a scarlet letter embroidered on her clothing for all to see, alone.

It is first shown through the major scene in the story, the death of Eugie. Arnold abandons his brother after his death by just standing up, leaving the body and picking peas, he does not call for help. This theme is also illustrated through the boy’s relatives. His uncle, Andy, portrays a negative obstacle set in front of him. Uncle Andy made Arnold feel abandoned and hurt when he stated “Not a tear in his eye”, this statement proves to show that his uncle did not care for him at the time and did not help comfort him.
Markandaya argues that fear is overpowering on Rukmani’s family. “But in us there was nothing left –no joy, no call for joy. It had come too late.”(pg.77) In this quote, there is a drought that ruined the land therefore there will be no food to feed the family.

The narrator realizes that the refugee is a man without politics. At the beginning he thinks that the man just wants to rest, but later he realizes the old man is not able to move on and is going to die at the bridge. He was forced to leave his farm where he had lived and to leave his animals behind. The man repeats “I was taking care of animals, I was only taking care of animals” a few times.
