To understand the story you have to understand the author s upbringing Shobhan Bantwal is a Brahmin by declaration Now religious texts tell us that caste is by nature how a person acts his her mannerisms but Brahmins have hijacked the system to ensure they retain power by assigning birthright to the system ie you can be a terribly disgraceful person and yet still be a Brahmin because your parents inherited Brahminism from their parents etc etc This is used to subjujate others while placing power in the hands of a few The caste system once a functional communal system is now abolished in India because of this abuse by the BrahminsYet Shobhan Bantwal in America continues to propagate Brahmin superiority and oppression by making the villains low caste and the heroes Brahmin In India when Brahmins commit crimes they have a tendency to assign blame on the so called lower caste help who are fearful and meek after years of being stepped on and spat on She ought to write about that if she wants to lend realism to her stories

E runs for her life Frantically racing through Palgaum's deserted streets her way lit only by the lights strung up for the Diwali festival her single goal is to escape death by fire But fleeing from her would be killers seems impossible unless she can find someone to help herTo approach her best friend would bring scandal to an innocent woman's doorstep and turning to her own strict conservative family is out of the uest.
