How does Arundhati Roy tell the story in chapter one?

Events flash back to Rahel and Estha’s birth and the period before their mother Ammu divorced their father. Then the narrator describes the funeral of Sophie Mol. It's a very disturbing scene where Roy describes Sophie Mol being buried alive (of course she is not actually alive) but she lets the vivid imagination of the twins run wild.

Throughout these speeches, some men occasionally proved their worth by acquiring an equivalent position held by their predecessors but most made it seem that the debt owed to their ancestors was far too great. Cicero had no opportunity to speak about his ancestors the same way, for they were not rendered illustrious nor enjoyed popular favour.2 He also warned his son about living up to a distinguished name, and how the eyes of the world will turn upon him, his life and character scrutinised in good deeds and bad.3 The value of ancestry also flowed into Roman funeral processions. This commonly involved a parade of ancestral portraits, which was offered as respect to the deceased; and destined every member of the family that had ever existed to be present at their descendant’s funeral.4 People attending the funeral would listen to the details from orators about the virtues and successes accomplished by the deceased. Afterwards they would

Creative Writing: Conflict By Henry Harms ‘In times of conflict, no one is completely innocent’ Conflict is seen by everyone everyday, and it just seems to happen to such undeserving people, but it’s the way in which you react and the decisions that you make, which ultimately decides on whether you will find yourself in trouble or not. In life we find that conflict can sometimes bring out the worst in people, and we see a great example of this in the Quiet American, with both Fowler and Pyle. Fowler, being the narrator of this story continually reminds the reader of his past and the guilt he has after cheating on his wife back home in England. This then sees Fowler and Pyle entering into a world thinking that they are completely innocent, as the world they come from is none like the one they locate to. However, after a naïve girl named Phuong enters the equation, the conflict between both Fowler and Pyle begins to heat up.
