Mulk Raj Anand depicts him experiencing a wide range of emotions - exalted upon receiving a used field hockey stick, resentful at the favoritism his father shows his younger brother, curious but confused in an encounter with a Salvation Army colonel - in an unsentimental way that reinforces how much Bakha is like anyone else, if not for the plight that keeps him from being as full a person as he might be.

We all have bad days and we all look for answers to the big problems we face and how world treats us whether as being a women, being poor, being uneducated, being out of place, being unclued to the topic being discussed or being lonely or like being untouchable.

His yelling attracts a large crowd that joins in on Bakha's public shaming. Bakha contemplates on the beauty of nature and falls back while his friends move forward. Ram Charan eventually sees his friends and runs off with them despite his mother's protestations.

They still struggle on, noble in mind or not. The strife and misery of this narrative!
