Which character do you dislike the most in either “ A Question of Dowry” or “Cat in the Rain”?. Give your reasons.
From the A Question of Dowry, the character that I dislike the most is Mrs. Ramachandran. This is because she is a commanding mother. It can be clearly seen at the early of the story when she commanding Ayah not to put too much coconut-milk in at once and she order Ayah to put it in stage by stage. Besides that, she also commanding her husband at the end of the story to find another doctor to be her son-in-law after the engagement fail. Mrs. Ramachandran is also a disrespectful wife. This can be seen when she rise up her voice when talking to Mr. Ramachandran about the dowry and she get angry when Mr. Ramachandran want to return the necklace because they cannot affort to pay for the necklace. In addition, Mrs. Ramachandran is a perfectionist. She want everything to be perfect but sometimes she makes things even worse. This can be seen when she try to fix jasmine flowers that Sivasothie wear. Other than that, she also a liar. This happen when Thirulchelvam came to meet Mr. Ramachandran, her youngest boy called Sivasothie and told Thirulcelvam that Sivasothie was waiting for the last two hour but Mrs. Ramachandran cover up by telling that Sivasothie was been hard work at the kitchen. Furthermore, Mrs. Ramachandran is a materialistic. She eagerly want Thirulcelvam to be her son-in-law because he is a doctor and rich man. Even though the engagement between Sivasothie and Thirulcelvam fail, she still want a doctor to be her son-in-law and she order her husband to find another doctor for her daughter. So, the character that I dislike the most is Mrs. Ramachandran because she is a commanding mother, disrespectful wife, perfectionist, liar and materialistic.
