  • "Now dear, tell the close your name"
  • Bat Cat Apple

  • "You`re it!!"
  • Premila and Santha are starting classes at a new Anglo-Indian school, in and the teacher wants them to change their names to english names, such as Pamela and Cynthia.
  • "Ayah! Ayah!"
  • "Never do that infront of the other children!"
  • "Get up, we're going home" "Bring your pencils and your notebook" "Were going home for good!"
  • The teacher asks her to stand up and tell the class her name but she says she does not know what her name is because she can not remember her "new" name.

  • When it got cooler outside, the kids went out to play in the afternoon. She let one of the small enlgish boys catch her in the game because that is how she was taught to play nicely.
  • "Why was that, Darling?"

  • "She made me and the other Indians sit at the back during our test!"
  • When the young girl saw her mother pull up to pick them up at the end of the day, she ran over excitedly to see her. Her sister told her to never do that again because it was embarrassing and the other kids did not do it.
  • In this part, the big sister comes and takes her little sister out of class very madly. The teacher made her sit at the back with a desk between them during a test because Indians "cheat".
  • The mother was surprised they were home so early, she explained what happened and suggested they should never go back to that school again.
