Thread Name: Gunga Din. Racist or just of its time?
Subject: RE: Gunga Din. Racist or just of it's time?
Brian - Yes, probably. It is the last line in which I believe the narrator seeks to redeem himself for abusing Gunga Din so much earlier. Whether it pays the debt, I don't know. I am sure you know Kipling and his works better than I (The Widow's uniform soundtrack is playing as I type :-) ) so, do you think it does?
