[Behind the Beautiful Forevers]
In chapter 14 “The Trial” of Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Katherine Boo describes the trial of Karam and Kahkashan, which takes place in the city’s Fast-Track Sessions Court. Several witnesses travel from Annawadi to testify in the trail where corruption blackmail take place leading up to the final moments before the trial begins.
Boo writes “The Annawadi witnesses might remember new, devastating details of the night in question, the special executive officer had told Karam. She herself might have to testify about Fatima’s dying declaration in such a manner that a guilty verdict was all but guaranteed” (338).
Priya, Dinesh, Abdul Shaikh, and Cynthia are all called as witnesses for the prosecution during the trial. Which testimony did you find most interesting? Why? Please provide a page citation.
