“And he had soon become possessed with an overwhelming desire to live their life. He had been told they were sahibs, superior people.” (11)
Anand, Mulk Raj. Untouchable. England: Penguin. 1940. Print.
‘An overwhelming desire’ really struck me as a moment in the beginning of the story that set up how the rest of the novel would go. The desire to be somebody else is a theme that this character shares, as well as something that readers can relate to.
