When did Bama first come to know of the social discrimination faced by the people of her community?
One day while returning home from school, Bama saw an elder carrying a small packed held by its string. He was holding it out so as not to touch it. There seemr to be vadais in the packet because it was stained with oil. It was a funny scene because that way the packet could get undone and the vadais could fall out. She felt bad that people had to bow and work so hard for their masters. This thought of social discrimination deeply infuriated her.
