John Seymour 8. Balram's thoughts of his family initially hold him back from killing Ashok. What changes his mind? Why do you think he goes back to retrieve Dharam at the end of the novel? Does his decision absolve him in any way?

Pip | 1304 comments I think he had been away from his family long enough to shrug off their influence. He killed Ashok despite thinking that his family might be killed in revenge. He was in a position to help Dharam and so he did although I do not think that redemption was his motivation.
