These days diversity is more than just the different cultures and backgrounds the students have attending. The curriculum itself as-well-as the methods to

    Response to Reading Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance I chose to read Rohinton Mistry’s A Fine Balance, a story about four very different people living in India during a period of great civil unrest known as The State of Emergency.

He seems to create the story around you, placing you in the setting as a viewer, involving you in the lives of the characters. Mistry clearly outlines the political and economic situation

Evidence of this is found in ancient cave paintings, an attempt to immortalize
