Discuss the relationships these three world religions have with each other within the city and the tensions they cause among its inhabitants.

Jamayya has no issue working for another Brahmin, but refuses to share a room with another servant, because that servant is of a lower caste. In what ways do the all characters in the book struggle with the issues of caste and class in Indian society?

How do characters use caste and class to define themselves and their relationships with others? How do the descriptions act as a foil to the very personal, individual vignettes and unite them into a whole?

Discuss why he feels compelled to share secrets with the young boy—is he trying to protect his idealism of youth? Live vicariously through the boy?

How does it permeate the minds of many of the characters? Discuss the circumstances in Kittur that may have led to these attitudes. Corruption runs rampant through the police and the government. How do the characters subtly fight this? What is holding them back from doing more?
