Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Do you think Sampath finally achieves his freedom from society? In my opinion, Sampath finally achieves freedom from society to some extent. On the other it can be argued that since it?s an open ending that we?ll never truly know. Evidence pointing towards the idea that Sampath is free from society could be, when he climbs the tree and becomes a hermit no one questioned his actions any longer. This might show that Sampath is free from societies expectations however he is not free from society itself as they follow him to the tree. ...read more.

Middle

In effect society has followed Sampath. Moreover they tried using techniques which society found ?acceptable?. Secondly, Pinky is still deeply involved in social life (Hungry hop boy and shopping). Pinky makes a big scene about those two things when she?s with Sampath. For example she asked if Sampath would like ?to come along with the hungry hop boy? and herself. Finally, at the end of the novel, it is only implied that Sampath turned into a guava for all we know he didn?t, they find him and then he returns to everyday life. ...read more.

Conclusion

Additionally, towards the beginning of the book Desai describes Kulfi?s obsession with food. Again the book ends with Kulfi?s obsession of food however more emphasised since the beginning of the book. So as we can see so far, Desai introduces key ideas at the beginning of the novel and then builds on them throughout. Finally, early on in the book Sampath claims that he ?wished he could be a guava?. Ironically at the end of the book he supposedly turns into one. Again this emphasizes the fact that Desai develops key ideas at the start of the book until they are very prominent towards the end of the novel. ...read more.
