MISSION TO KALA "....sends a young boy hardly out of his cradle on a dangerous expedition into unknown and possibly hostile territory " TO WHAT EXTENT IS THE ASSERTION CORRECT?
The assertion that MISSION TO KALA "...sends a young boy hardly out of his cradle on a dangerous expedition into unknown and possibly hostile territory " is correct to a visible degree . Medza's adventure marks a change in his life from the time he was sent to Kala up to the time he return home.
