and manages to reach the penultimate round, he is arrested on the suspicion of cheating. Throughout the show, Jamal is constantly snubbed by the host Prem Kumar as a ‘chai wala’.

Kipling starts his short story “The Mark of the Beast” with an Indian native proverb that inquires which Gods of two opponents would be the stronger one.

Sengupta explains that Boyle’s film solely portrays the negative aspects of capitalism in Mumbai as well as the harsh reality that it’s citizens experience and live in. Sengupta conveys accurate points when describing life in the slums based on what we witness in Danny Boyle’s movie, Slumdog Millionaire.

The incident I chose to represent was at the beginning of Night when Moishe the Beadle tells the story the first group of prisoners being taken to the woods by the Nazis to dig their own graves and how babies were thrown into the air and used for target practice. This incident brings tears to my eyes knowing how horrible this must have been for the victims. This incident just leads into how horrible the Nazis treat their prisoners throughout the novel.

The Nazis had no true care for anyone, but themselves, which is most likely why they didn’t care what they did to others.
