John Seymour 6. Compare Ashok and his family's actions after Pinky Madam hits a child to Balram's response when his driver does. Were you surprised at the actions of either? How does Ashok and his family's morality compare to Balram's in respect to the accidents, and to other circumstances?

Pinky Madam's family were willing to sacrifice Balram.


Connie D | 91 comments This is one point where Ashok clearly did the wrong thing (despite my comment elsewhere that Ashok didn't individually wrong Balram). You could debate that Ashok had to protect his wife, but... Here Balram as an employer acted in a much more moral fashion, helping both his employee and the family (and yet also avoiding criminal and insurance charges).
