Takhar, Jennifer. Rohinton Mistry, "Writer From Elsewhere". 2 Oct. 2009
The beginning of this article is all about Indian politics and the newly developed government after India's independence. The
government was corrupt from almost the very beginning and it only got worse as time wore on. In the 1970's Prime Minister of India,
Indira Gandhi announced a state of emergency without consulting her cabinet. This made life even more difficult for the main
characters in Rohinton Mistry's book, A Fine Balance, who were already having a hard time. The article expresses that A Fine
Balance was about the characters' private lives mixing with public history and allows for better comprehension of the story.

herself in which she talks about her childhood experiences and her thoughts on life, culture and India. She shares some information
about herself and her past. When a reader learns about the author and their life, it allows that person to relate to the author and
understand where they are coming from and what they are talking about. People feel more involved in the story when they know
that Roy is using some of her own experiences to shape her story, such as her childhood in Kerala.The children in her story also grow
up in Kerala.

Yet recognition of popular culture as a valid literacy medium within early childhood contexts continues to be problematic (Ashton, 2005; Shegar & Weninger, 2010; Arthur, 2001). The development of literacy learning begins well before children start school as they engage in literate practices in their homes and communities, allowing them to engage in meaning-making (Arthur, 2001; Ashton, 2005)....
