In this piece of non-fiction, the narrator remembers a mother and son, of how he understood them: two people, who were once employed as "servants" in his home.
There is an attempt to understand motives, of why, and despite one's awareness of caste, there was a feeling of rank and privilege.
So, how should this mother and son have occured to him, and then in his life?
And when can you challenge your role, the extent of your influence?
'Low-hanging Fruit' is offered as a memoir, as a record of these questions.
