563 words - 3 pages

I was the only civilized person the day Sophie Mol came. Everybody else behaved so poorly, even though we were greeting an English mother and child.We were surrounded by a sweeper class mob trying to get a better view of the airplane, as if they had never seen one. There were children running around, and people who actually camped at the airport over night without a shower. That woman with the child was especially disgusting.

They belong with her husband. Meanwhile, Rahel talked to cement trash bins and rolled up in a curtain that dirty commoners touch. She had no sense of cleanness because she herself is the product of a marriage between a drunkard from another community and a whore who later divorced. Esthappen, made fun of me when I showed my knowledge of Shakespeare, who transcends all time. Estha on the other hand looked like Elvis Presley who was out of date. He was very despondent, as usual. When Margaret talked to him, that stubborn boy refused to even say "how do you do." After a whole week of training, he still could not speak with a British accent, and pronounced "thank God" without a k. The two little rascals also kept on fighting the whole day about meaningless things. They would start hitting each other because Estha thought Rahel was ugly, or shouting because he was a few centimeters taller than her. Those two need a father to discipline them. Chacko had his own problems with tidiness as always. He had his necktie sideways and the suit he was wearing looked tight on him. When he greeted Sophie Mol, he hugged and kissed her like a dog lapping its master's face. Yet he did comport himself well other than that. He was better, atleast, than Ammu and her children.But Margaret and Sophie Mol are different. Sophie Mol has a noble stature, and is taller than Esthappen. Her beautiful sepia hair flows from under her hat and her skin is light like the sand on a beach. Margaret has beautiful eyes of a woman in mourning, and talks in an extremely polite manner. If only everybody could act like them.
