    Few Sample Question from this Chapter are given below:

    Q. The two accounts that you read above are based in two distant cultures. What is the commonality of theme found in both of them?

    Ans. The two autobiographical accounts are by the two women Zitkala-Sa and Bama, from marginalised communities in two distant cultures of the world. But there is a thread of commonality running between both the accounts. Zitkala-Sa who is a native American belonged to a marginalised community and was exploited by Europeans who considered themselves superior to the Native Americans. Her identity was questioned throughout and finally taken away from her. She was forcibly taken to a school where an alien language and culture was thrusted upon her. Her long hair was cut against her wish. The second account gives a picture of the hardships and humiliations faced by the Indian ‘Dalits’. Here Bama, a prominent Dalit writer,  is a victim of untouchability, casteism and vehement discrimination. Her elders have to crouch before the upper caste people and carry out petty errands for them silently. Though Zitkala-Sa and Bama belong to the entirely different cultures, their stories share a similar theme. They show the discrimination and oppression faced by their respective communities. Another common thread running through both the stories is the response of the protagonists. Both believe in putting up a stiff fight. From a very young age, both Zitkala-Sa and Bama start protesting and resisting in their own ways.
