As a matter of fact, this family has no relation with love; Cholly, the father, hates his children and Pauline, the mother, prefers the Fisher family whom she works at because "power, praise, and luxury were hers in this household", (Morrison, 128). In addition, there is a whole chapter in the novel which represents a great example of irony in page 132. Morison begins some of her chapters with parts of Dick and Jane story which contradicts with character's real life. For example, “SEEFATHERHEISBIGANDSTRONGFATHERWILLYOUPLAYWITHJANEFATHERISSMILINGSMILEFATHERSMILESMILE".

The wife rejects the label ‘lesbians’ ﴾by definition ‘women having sexual relations’﴿ not for the sake of her own heterosexuality, but simply in regard of her husband’s personal identification. Faced with the ‘terrible lies’ ﴾Kay 277﴿ and cruel scrutiny of the media, Millie views herself as ‘the only one who can remember [Joss] the way he wanted to be remembered’ ﴾Kay 40﴿, constantly seeking solace from fond memories only she has control over. Colman Moody’s perception of his father’s identity is another puzzle solved accordingly to the story’s progress. Initially ashamed and ‘so embarrassed [he] could emigrate’ ﴾Kay 48﴿, Colman displayed a rather rude and sulky attitude whenever digging into his early years alongside Joss. Nonetheless, though many have mistreated this mentality as LGBTQ+ prejudice, it is clearly pinpointed by Colman himself that “It's not because I hate gays or anything like that.

Hassen views his wife Salima as ‘flaccid' (Essop  1998: 71) with many inadequacies' (Essop  1998: 67) and has an overly negative view of his wife; however the narrator shows that Salima is kind and caring as she helps Catherine and visits Karim (Medalie 1998: xxix). Hassen's patriarchal view of society exposes gender inequality as a social inequality, also shown in ‘Devil at a Dead End'. Lastly, the climatic event of the ‘The Hajji' can be contrasted with that of ‘Devil at a Dead End'. When Karim dies without Hassen having visited him he feels conflicted emotions but ultimately wishes that he could have shown his brother ‘a final act of love' (Essop  1998: 81). While Hassen finds no closure in his brother's death and regrets his actions showing that he is not as powerful as he thinks he, in contrast, the girl on the train found power in a hopeless situation to overcome a horrid fate - showing that she held more power than she thought she was capable of.
