If I Were a High School Language Arts Teacher...

Essay #2 (50 points):

Insomnia, or the inability to sleep, is a recurrent theme in Vikram Chandra's Sacred Games. In a series of well-developed paragraphs, compare and contrast the periods of insomnia experienced by A. Sartaj, B. Ganesh, C. Mary, and D. Prabjhot. A successful essay will include information on why each character experienced insomnia, how his or her life was affected during the sleepless period, and what actions or events allowed the character to return to normal sleep habits.

Extra Credit (5 points):

Do you think Vikram Chandra is a recurring insomniac? If so, why?
