Why this book? I had read this short story by Sudha Murthy “how I taught my grandmother to read” in my school and was appalled by the simplicity and the subtleness of the book. How simple things captures your mind. The way that she had written that book lured me into reading another one of her ‘Simple Masterpiece’. The Indian-ness of the book also attracted me as it became more relatable and relevant.

What is human nature and how do young people overcome or accept it? This is the question that T. Boyle’s “Greasy Lake” asks. Between the misconstrued thoughts of adulthood and superficial attempts of establishing independence, the story walks through a short period of time where the Narrator is caught in the middle of such occurrences and through this the literary elements of setting and perspective truly shine.

Every event in this story was a fact and makes us think a lot of things about us. Those things can be different because everyone have his or her point of view, but in my opinion those are the things I think we all can make reflections or take consciousness about the story. One of those things is that we have to appreciate what we have because we never know when we are going to lose those things that make us happy. One detail in the story of this reflection is when Ana lose her home because he had to hide, and she had a very good life there. Other reflection we can make is that the human being can do everything to survive while he has an objective, and this happen more when that human being has people he love because their objective would be protect that persons and when you love someone and your objective is to protect her, you will be unstoppable.
“The most fearless hearts, the audacious dreamers, have always maintained a sense of optimism that often flies in the face of the available evidence” (Martin O’Malley).

Rikki Tikki also endangered his family by taking Nagaina’s eggs which made her even angrier considering Nag died. For this reason, the theme of the fictional story Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Rudyard Kipling is being too audacious can endanger you and the people you love. Rikki-tikki is an audacious and inquisitive character in this story.

However, the novel pointedly refrains from advocating any single religious faith over another. Instead, the novel investigates the nature of religious faith itself.
