Prompt: Based on the chapter, “(or A Love Story)” by VikasSwarup, explain how Ram has been effected by the inequities between rich and poor in India and how this inequity influences his actions in the chapter.

Purpose Question: How is Ram effected by the injustice and the gap between the rich and the poor in India and how does this gap affect the way he feels and acts?

Mini-Thesis: In the chapter “(or A Love Story)” by VikasSwaup, the inequities between the rich and poor cause Ram to feel sympathy for the other characters who, like himself, are struggling to survive and resentment and anger towards the rich who take advantage of the poor. The poor become like a his family and he does anything to protect them and his resentment of the rich ultimately leads him to confront and expose Swapna Devi for the monster that she is.
