Untouchable, Anand

“Bakha observed her as she walked along swaying. She was beautiful. He was proud of her with a pride not altogether that of a brother for a sister” (Anand 15).

This passage interests me because this paragraph starts off describing how simple and ordinary Sohini is in this society yet Bakha is able to see her simplicity as beautiful which seems to contradict his longing to be like the Tommies who to Bakha, seem more sophisticated.
