Script excerpt for chapter 4

Your duty, he said, is not to ask why, but to fight a battle. That alone is your duty, nothing else.
Then Krishna drove away. And Arjuna gave the order to attack.

Once his doubts had gone, there was no escape for the enemies. They were slaughtered to the last man.
And their blood trickled into the ground and the ravens ate their flesh and their bones fermented.

Hail Arjuna, who fulfilled his duty in an act of selflessness. He did exactly what was demanded of him and woe to them who act differently.
Once his doubts had gone, there was no escape for the enemies. They were slaughtered to the last man.

And their blood trickled into the ground and the ravens ate their flesh and their bones fermented.

Hail Arjuna, who fulfilled his duty in an act of selflessness. He did exactly what was demanded of him and woe to them who act differently.
 
John is one of these. John is one who doesn’t do what he was destined for.

One day my mother  asked me whether I had any money anywhere. I didn’t have anything however. She thought that I had hidden the money and that I  should give it to her. That’s when I got angry and ran away. I ran to  the bus station. I didn’t have anything except from the Khaki shorts which I was wearing.

Interview with Father Cruz, a social Worker
Normally  a child run away from the home is looked upon in the village as something wrong of activity. It’s a very wrong activity. So the parents due to the wrong connotation  of their prestige they don't get back immediately

And even the culture of the society  is blaming somebody for some other -  past  - failures, past misshifts. So the peer group psychologically, emotionally trust not the children and the home … so many calamities are there.

Question: What do you think of when you wash glasses
CEDILI: I really don't think about anything. Just my work.
Question: But don't you ask yourself sometimes, what you're doing here, why you came here ?
