Untouchable

“‘All right,’ agreed Baka without any show of formality, and going out of doors sat down on the edge of a broken cane chair, the only article of furniture of European design which he had been able to acquire in pursuance of his ambition to live like an Englishman.” (Anand 15)

The quote is interesting because Bakha is living the glamour of an Englishman’s life. At the same time not really in a sense of irony.
