Brinda S. Narayan: Deodorized

This is the beginning of Narayan's story.

$\,$
No bus to catch, yet Rani was late. lt was getting dressed that took her longer and longer every day. Scrunching her face in the oval mirror that rested against the steel trunk, she twirled brushes, dabbed powders, squeezed scents. At first she had one lipstick, one face powder, one scent. Now laid out on the uneven surface of the trunk, she had four lipsticks,
5
two powders, five scents. Like the madams at her workplace, she combined colours: today, brinjal purple on her eyes, a pomegranate flush on her cheeks and a scent like ripe grapes. Nestled inside the Whitefield slum, her home was fenced off from the IT Valley's tidy gardens and mirrorwork towers by concrete walls and barbed wire. The walls were too tall, the barbed wire too spiky. If not she'd have hurled her body - lithe and muscular under the
10
drab Callus uniform - away from the non-stop cries of untended waifs, from snapping dogs and growling drunks into the muffled English of her nightly workplace.
When she was almost done, a scramble for her office badge. Only one room, one steel trunk, yet nothing could be found. Aiyyo, there it hung on the metal hook that held her father' s shirt; she slung it on her neck, a plastic card with her unsmiling photo attached to a
15
yellow ribbon: Rani Kampanna, Contract Worker # 343, Housecleaning, Callus Inc. In the stamp-sized photograph, of which she had five copies, her ears, weighted down by hefty earrings, were large loops of flesh; she was only seventeen, but her ears were those of an old woman. Her eyes, because this was her first studio photo, were creased by blinding Studio lights. In the photograph, she wore an orange-pink China silk but to work she wore
20
her Callus uniform, a blue-grey sari with a grey overcoat hanging below her knees. Rani liked large prints and radiant colours, turmeric yellows, chilli greens. The uniform, stark like cement, had a Callus logo embroidered on the front pocket of the overcoat shirt. No flower motifs to dress up the border or sari pallu.
But the photo-badge she wore like a garland; inside her neighbourhood, it granted her a
25
special standing. Strapping boys, recently outfitted in jeans pants and slick hairstyles, racked her movements. They followed her each night, when she walked to work, with hoots and whistles that halted at the Valley's gates. She was the only one among several hundred slum-dwellers permitted entry into a world so tantalizingly close, yet soundly secured from hovering outsiders.
30
At first, some slum men seemed overly rattled. There were discussions in beaten pathways, between beedi puffs and the night's last swig: how did she wrangle access, when several of them at various times approached gate security guards for any kind of work and were beaten back by a gruff 'No work for you here'? How did Rani, a girl at that, receive official sanction for her nightly entry?
35
'Don't give anyone,' her mother hissed, 'the contractor's contacts. You cannot trust anyone here.' Rani, who heard of the recruitment agent from a school friend, had given a false address for the ID card. Her friend said the next-door slum was avoided by IT Valley contractors. 'They're being told not to recruit nearby troublemakers,' the friend said. 'Better give a different address.' The troublemakers included Rani's parents, construction workers
40
who once roamed freely inside the Valley' s boundaries; who reared their infants among its sand pits, metal pilings and granite heaps; who bare on bumpy turbans, flat pans of liquid cement to fuse puzzles of brick and glass; who stubbornly refused to shift their tin and tarpaulin homes for vague promises of alternate housing; who belonged to the IT Valley Construction Workers' Union, an unregistered body even after fifteen years of fighting for
45
fighting for unpaid wages, disputed lands.
Still, despite her lying and cheating and false address, despite her accidental crossing into the gated campus, Rani felt finer than her neighbours. Even if singled out only by fate, she was singled out nonetheless and the difference between her and them showed in small ways: the way she brushed her teeth in the morning -her brush moving up, down, all over
50
her mouth with lips clamped to keep the foam from dribbling -the way she wore her sari a few inches below her waistline, the way she combed her hair without a parting, the way she walked on high heels without tripping or falling, differences apparent only to the keenly observant but more obvious with each passing day to a changing Rani. When she turned into the IT Valley grounds, flashing her contract badge to the gate security, her gait altered.
55
Swaying from side to side on brick walkways, she goaded the slum-boy stalkers into soaring frustration.

    Ever since the Industrial Revolution, big cities have become the heart of political, economic and cultural exchange. This is especially true for Narayan's short story Deodorized, where a young woman named Rami finds herself in the Indian city of Bangalore. This postcolonial city unveils a setting which is defined by a strict border that runs through the city, not only seperating the city geographically but also socially. In this comprehension I want to focus on the situation of Rani and her experiences in this environment.
    Einleitung
    The short story Deodorized focuses on the young woman Rani Kampana, who works as a cleaning lady for a Bangalore call center. One of the main focuses for the author is to portray Rani as a wanderer between two worlds, since she is part of the city slums but also a part of the IT Valley due to her job.
    Hauptteil
    Struktur des Textes
    Rani was born and raised in the "Whitefield slum" (Text, line 7) of Bangalore. She grew up as the daughter of construction workers, leaving her with little chance to climb the ladder to a better life. Therefore, she is basically trapped in the slums of Bangalore. The term 'trapped' can be taken quite literally, since the slum is surrounded by "concrete walls and barbed wire" (Text, line 8) Even worse her parents are branded as troublemakers who "once roamed freely inside the Valley's boundaries" (Text, line 41f.) and as part of the Union, fighting for unpaid wages. It could be said that Rani has not been dealt the best hand in life.
    Ranis Situation
    Due to Rani's situation it seems as if her job serves as a silver lininig at first glance. She works as a cleaning lady at Callus Inc. She is the only person in the slums that has a job outside. This puts her in a unique position; she can leave the slum and access the IT Valley. Yet this privilege comes with a catch: she is only allowed to enter the IT Valley at night when she is cleaning the call centers. Her official work description on her office badge reads "Contract Worker #343" (Text, line 16), meaning she is only a number, or rather a ghost which only appears during the night - invisible to the 'real' workers of the IT Valley. In addition, Rani only got the job because she used a fake address for her ID card, disguising that she lives in the slum. Without this lie she would not have been able to get the job.
    Ranis Stelle als Reinigungskraft
    Being the only person in the slums who has a job in the IT Valley provides her with a feeling of superiority. She is "feeling finer than her neighbours" (Text, line 47). With this feeling of superiority come a form of mistrust. Rani can sense that peole inside the slum are talking about her. They observe her every night when she makes it to the border of the slum. For many slum dwellers Rani's case is curious - how did she gain access to a world that is unaccessible to them?
    Ranis Selbstbild
    Rani's unique position in the slum has a profound impact on her. Being the only one working in the IT Valley has certainly changed her. She is wearing make-up, earrings and a working uniform. Yet this change of her outer appearance seems to have a downside; she appears older "her ears were those of an old woman." (text, line 18) In addition she is being followed by young people when she is walking to the exit of the slum. The slum has its eyes on her, illustrating that she is sticking out with her special role.
    Ranis Alltag
    Rani's character definitely represents an anomaly in the Whitefield slum of Bangalore. Unlike the rest of the slum dwellers, she has access to a world that is denied to every other 'inmate'. However, she gained this position only by pretending to be someone she is not. This way of cheating seems to be the ony way of escaping a system which quite literally keeps her inside a prison with high walls and barbed wire.

    Only a few paragraphs into Narayan's short story Deodorized it becomes clear to the reader that Rani serves as the focal point. No other character in the short story is so closely described and followed. It is therefore an interesting task to analyse the character of Rani by the means of language and narrative techniques.
    Einleitung
    Rani is part of the Whitefield slum yet has also access to the IT Valley, which makes her unique in the sense that she is a character belonging to two worlds. However, I would make the argument that she is rather a character in between two worlds - due to her unique position she does neither belong to the slum nor to the society of the IT Valley.
    This is best seen when taking into account that she is spending her daytime in the slum yet the night is dedicated to her job which takes her to the IT Valley. This feeling of not belonging to either IT Valley nor slum is further enforced that no other characters act in the foreground - they just exist in the background almost as if they were only a footmark. They are only referred to as "boys" (Text, line 26) or "dwellers" (Text, line 29). The fact that Rani is the focal point is further layed out by the fact that the description of the setting is subjective and coloured by Rani's observations.
    Hauptteil
    Rani als Figur zwischen zwei Welten
    If Rani finds herself in between two worlds, it is also true that the two worlds function as stark contrasts. This is evident when taking a closer look at the setting of the excerpt. In the slum there are "beaten pathways" (Text, line 32) as opposed to "brick walkways" (Text, line 57). Environment and inhabitants of the slum are described as poor - Rani does not have many belongings in her home. However, due to her job she has been able to afford more luxury articles like "four lipsticks, one face powder, five scents" (Text, line 4f.) The IT Valley presents a world of "tidy gardens and mirrorwork towers" (Text, line 7f.), which is tempting for Rani. Due to her unique position Rani is isolated in the slum as well as int the IT Valley; she is not interacting with anyone. It is therefore not suprising that people in the slum envy Rani.
    Der Kontrast
    Due to Rani's situation it seems as if her job serves as a silver lininig at first glance. She works as a cleaning lady at Callus Inc. She is the only person in the slums that has a job outside. This puts her in a unique position; she can leave the slum and access the IT Valley. Yet this privilege comes with a catch: she is only allowed to enter the IT Valley during night when she is cleaning the call centers. Her official work description on her office badge reads "Contract Worker #343" (Text, line 16), meaning she is only a number, or rather a ghost which only appears during the night - unvisible to the 'real' workers of the IT Valley. In addition, Rani only got the job because she used a fake address for her ID card, disguising that she lives in the slum. Without this lie she would not have been able to get the job.
    Erzählperspektive
    It is very obvious that Rani is proud of what she has achieved. Being an underdog from the slum of Bangalore, she always had to fight an uphill battle in life. Her pride shows in her demeanor, while she is wearing her photo-badge, which she "wore like a garland" (Text, line 25). This is also a reason why she "felt finer than her neighbours" (text, line 49), showing her dismissive behaviour towards other inhabitants of the slum. With this behaviour also comes a certain lack of distance to herself. This shows in the expression of "she was singled out nonetheless and the difference between her and them showed in small ways" (Text, line 51f.) This is most evident in her change of appearance: "the way she wore her sari a few inches below her waistline, the way she combed her hair without parting, the way she walked on high heels without tripping or falling, differences apparent only to the keenly observant but more obvious with each passing day to a changing Rani." (Text, line 53-55)
    Ranis Selbstbild
    Rani's special position within the Whitefield slum is also notable in the use of the language. There are several enumerations of her belongings that transcends her above the rest of the slum (Text, line 53-55). This special position also shows in parallel sentence structures, as in the following: "Still, despite her lying and cheating and false adress, despite her accidental crossing into the gated campus, Rani felt finer than her neighbours." (Text, line 48f.)
    sprachliche Mittel
    Due to her position Rani is like not like anybody else in the slum. This is intensified by means of language and narrative techniques, such as the fact that she is wandering between two worlds, Rani's special position and the perspective, as the above analysis has shown.

    In her short story Deodorized the author Brinda S. Narayan paints the picture of a young woman named Rani living in the Whitefield slum of Bangalore and her struggle for a better life. With forged information about herself she got a job as a cleaning lady in the IT Valley. Rani's regular job just might be the chance she needed to escape the slum. As a reader, however, the questions remains how likely an ascend like the one of Rani is in a country with a population over one billion? Therefore, I want to take a closer look at Narayan's story in light of the social, cultural and economic situation in India.
    Einleitung
    Rani was born and raised in the slums, which puts her at the lower scale of the Indian society. Slums started to exist due to the urbinization which has been taking place since the 1960. People from the agrarian sector move to the city in order to have a better life. Most cities could not take care of this huge amount of people with housing, which is the reason poor people took matters into their own hand, building small homes at the outskirts of cities like Bangalore and Mumbai. Due to the caste system the social mobility is very problematic. Poor people have a tendency to stay poor because the cast system won't let them carry out a profession which does not suit their caste. The glimmer of hope for many poor Indians is the IT branch, which is booming in India. This presents a way of upward mobility like nothing else. The result being that people push into the sector in hope of a better future when the reality only holds long hours and exploitation.
    A similar problem is gender inequality which is a big problem in India. The common assumption in India still remains that women are the lesser sex, which makes it even harder for women like Rani to climb the ladder of upward mobility.
    Hauptteil
    soziale Situation in Indien
    Therefore, it does not come as a surprise that Rani is in a special position and other inhabitants of the slum view her closely. She seems to be a demigod among people who will never even get to set a foot in the IT Valley. This is further enforced by the stark contrast between the two sections of Bangalore. For the inhabitants of the slum the IT Valley is always looming. The question, however, remains how much of this is representative of reality. The fact that the slum is described as a sort of an enclosed ghetto where inhabitants are much rather prisoners does not seem representative of reality.
    Ranis soziale Situation als Beispiel für Indien
    In a country with a population of one billion cultural tension are inevitable. Narayan shows this by contrasting the slum and the IT Valley. The juxtaposition between poor and rich is a big cultural problem in India, which Narayan tries to point out. Yet she does not address another important social tension, namely religion. The tensions between Hinduism and Islam are an important topic in India uo until this day. This seems to be invisible in Narayan's short story. The role of the family, another important cultural field, is only illustrated in the brief ineraction between mother and daughter, yet not representative of India's family significance.
    kulturelle Spannungen
    The emergence of IT-technology has had a lasting effect on India. This new branch of work created millions of jobs. Especially people from the lower scale of the population got a chance to stand on their own feet by being able to work in this business. This means also jobs for people like Rani and illustrates that people also get exploited since they are only allowed in the IT Valley when noboby else is around. Narayan illustrates well that the emergence of IT is boon and bane at the same time. It provides jobs for the people yet can also lead to the exploitation of workers. People with less or no skills at all are willing to do every job in order to earn money - a fact that the IT-branche is aware of in India and a big reason why the Indian market is so important and attractive to western comanies.
    wirtschaftliche Verhältnisse
    Brinda S. Narayan is trying to portray India in her short story Deodorized. Does she achieve it to portray all of Indian's social, cultural and economic situations? No, of course not. That is impossible in a country with one billion people. Yet she decides to write a short story which illustrates the situation of a young girl form the Whitefield slum. She portrays obstacles and problems that are real and reasonable. She tried to show the many layers of problems in India by juxtapositioning the IT-industry with the life in the slums. Based on the fact that we are dealing with a short story and not with a novel I find this angle sufficient.

    "Now she is gone. Gone until the sun rises again. Doing what? Cleaning offices in the IT Valley. Working for companies that I tried to fight as a Union member. It is almost ironic that now Rani is working for them. The company that didn't tolerate us in the valley is now paying the money that we so dearly need to survive in here. Yeah, that's right: in here. We are not treated like human beings but much rather like prisoners.
    Einstieg
    Yet I cannot make her stop working over there. We need the money badly. How are we supposed to survive in this forsaken place without her providing for us? Beggars can't be choosers. The worst thing is not that my girl is working for them but rather the fact that she is not here and I cannot look after her like I used to do for the last 17 years. In an environment like this you always have to be alert - especially when it comes to your kids.
    At the same time I'm really proud of Rani. No one believed in her - not even her father, who thought of her less because of the fact that she is a girl. I believed in her and always told her that she has to take what she deserves! You cannot remind yourself often enough of the fact that she is the only woman from the slum who has offical access to the IT Valley. Not like all the other fools who try to climb the walls just in order to see a glimpse of a better world. Still, I have to remind Rani that she has to be careful in this other world, especially with her history. She cannot take one misstep or they will know and hunt her down like a rabid dog.

    Gedanken und Gefühle
    The more I think about it the clearer it is to me: Rani is just like me. Always ready to face the biggest obstacles head-on. Never to be afraid of nobody. She is everything I could have imagined her to be. She is standing on her own feet. She always looked up to me; the mother who fought the big companies for the own rights. People always looked at me as if I was crazy, because I was not afraid to open my mouth despite the fact that I am a woman. The union never cared about that fact, since I was ready to put in the work that was necessary. Yet people did not like that I could take care of myself. Maybe they were even afraid… Nah, maybe not afraid but rather impressed. Yeah, impressed is the right term. The same way people look impressed when Rani walks towards the borderline.
    Die eigene Lage der Mutter
    Maybe five years down the line we can leave the slum. When we have enough money to move to the city. Maybe we can even get a real flat! Maybe Rani can also get a better job where she does not have to work during the night. Maybe even I can find a job with the union again. However, we have to be careful - we cannot be impatient now or all will be lost.
    What time is it? 5:35am. Rani should be home soon…"
