When these students do so he sees it as not an opportunity to fail he wants to give them the gift he had he tells them of the “Books” he had and of how he is “trying to save our lives”. When he says these words it is somewhat of an exaggeration no the Indian population will not die without reading and education but the lives they live will continue to be bland and uniform as they always have.
