Act II, Scene 2(St. Paul’s School)
HEADMASTER: A brilliant lad, this Indian! He is by far and away the best student in almost every subject. He is at home in English, French, Latin and Greek.
THE ENGLISH TEACHER: Our boys are hopelessly beaten by Aurobindo, an Indian. I have never come across such a student.
HEADMASTER: I am proud of him, for he belongs to our school. And he is so loving, so polite.
