Extracts from this document...


What does the writer shows us About the People Who Live in Las Lomas in 'A Drink of Water' In this essay I will be writing about what the writer shows about the people who in Las Lomas in 'A Drink of Water'. I will be writing about what the writer shows about Sunny who is the son of Manko, and I will also show what the writer has written about Manko too. And so I will be also writing about the one who was selling the water to the poor villagers and also he is the selfish one, Rampersad. There shall also be included about Rannie the person is angry about the selfish attitude of Rampersad, for why he is keeping the lustful well full of water to keep and sell to the poor villagers. And there will especially be a region in this essay where it will explain the villager's point of view towards the water. ...read more.


Also they were very happy that someone had killed Rampersad's dog and had taken his water as they wanted revenge from him. The thing the writer has shown about Manko is a cautious man and knows wrong from right, and that he wanted to make Sunny his son to be educated and sent to college, and so Manko has been working really hard so that he could accomplish this goal. You could tell that he was working so hard by when it said, "Grown brown and burnt from years of working on land", so this explains that since he had worked so hard his skin had been burnt by the obliterating heat from the Sun. Then when it said, "Sunny, who had not been to school for weeks" this meant that the money Manko had kept for Sunny's education was finished because he had used that money to buy Rampersad's water to survive. ...read more.


The writer shows that Rampersad was wanting a profit and so listened to his wife and then sold the water for a fixed price. What I think is that he shouldn't have been greedy and sold his water at an advantage where there was drought. He shouldn't have sold it when many people could not afford it and so they had to starve to death or get river water, and forget to boil it and end up getting sick. What the writer has shown about write and wrong is crystal-clear as he wants us to see that you can bend rules, or even break them, if it is necessary to save a life. This is because he is showing us that it can take a bad deed to do a good deed. As it had happened with both Manko and Sunny, when they were out to steal water because it would prevent Rannie from dying, and this shows that it ended up saving her life. ?? ?? ?? ??
