If Gunga Din was not as loyal to the soldiers as he was, then he would not have risked his life to save the poetic voice, for which the poetic voice is grateful. The author seeks to demonstrate that all people have a purpose to help others and that the quality of your actions is far more important than your skin colour, rank, ethnic beliefs or anything that makes up your individuality.
