Question 5

Examine the differences between Louka and Raina.


Candidates were expected to discuss the following points:

  • The differences are both social and behavioural; Raina’s high class versus Louka’s low class.


  • Raina’s idealism versus Louka’s realism. Raina believes she is superior while Louka sees her as her equal.
  • Raina’s complacency about marriage versus Louka’s grand desire to use marriage to climb up the social ladder.


  • Louka’s scheming nature versus Raina’s lukewarmness etc.

The question was quite a popular one.  But most candidates dwelt on separate character sketches of Raina and Louka. Candidates’ performance was good.
