rahul Trial is coming up like Kafka intended it to be brought up . absurd, funny, a nightmare drawn out in the public.drawn out over days...
but was just thinking, that just as it is absurd to have a trial without being told what you are being tried for, it would be absurd to be in for a trial, for an act that you dont consider a crime.

in the later case, you would be called insane...in societal terms.
so,in the former case...Kafka is giving the protagonist and us the readers a chance to call the society insane.

rahul Could we call everything that is not Utopia, a dystopia??! What use is the world in between...
