Don’t go to India ….

Don’t go to India…. have you ever heard this expression?!!!

Yes or no is not important …. what’s important is why ???

…..It is not safe ??

…… people are not kind ?

…….. just don’t go to India before you read what it is written about it in this article which is based on what others wrote about it . Let’s first see where is it located then we move to other aspects that make the difference between India 🇼🇳 and any other country .

India, officially the Republic of India is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. It is bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the southwest, and the Bay of Bengal on the southeast. It shares land borders with Pakistan to the west China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the northeast; and Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives. India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.

Indian culture

India’s culture is among the world’s oldest; civilization in India began about 4,500 years ago. Many sources describe it as “Sa Prathama Sanskrati Vishvavara” — the first and the supreme culture in the world,

India has 28 states and seven territories, according to the World Health Organization. There is no official language in India, according to a Gujarat High Court ruling in 2010, though Hindi is the official language of the government. The Constitution of India officially recognizes 23 official languages. 

Many people living in India write in Devanagari script. In fact, it is a misconception that the majority of people in India speak Hindi. Though many people speak Hindi in India, 59 percent of India residents speak something other than Hindi, according to The Times of India. Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil and Urdu are some other languages spoken in the country.  

Sanskrit, an ancient Indo-European language usually referred to in action movies, came from Northern India. How the language started has been a point of argument amongst linguists. It shares many similarities with English, French, Farsi and Russian languages. New DNA research in 2017 found that an Aryan invasion may have introduced the beginnings of Sanskrit. “People have been debating the arrival of the Indo-European languages in India for hundreds of years,” said study co-author Martin Richards, an archaeogeneticist at the University of Huddersfield in England. “There’s been a very long-running debate about whether the Indo-European languages were brought from migrations from outside, which is what most linguists would accept, or if they evolved indigenously.” [Aryan Invasion May Have Transformed India’s Bronze-Age Population]

Religion

India is identified as the birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism, the third and fourth largest religions. About 84 percent of the population identifies as Hindu, according to the “Handbook of Research on Development and Religion,” edited by Matthew Clarke (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2013). There are many variations of Hinduism, and four predominant sects — Shaiva, Vaishnava, Shakteya and Smarta.

About 13 percent of Indians are Muslim, making it one of the largest Islamic nations in the world. Christians and Sikhs make up a small percentage of the population, and there are even fewer Buddhists and Jains, according to the “Handbook.”

The CIA cited similar figures. According to its World Factbook, around 80 percent of the population is Hindu, 14.2 percent is Muslim, 2.3 percent is Christian, 1.7 percent is Sikh and 2 percent is unspecified.

đŸ„˜ food

Indian cuisine consists of a wide variety of regional and traditional cuisines native to the Indian subcontinent. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate, culture, ethnic groups, and occupations, these cuisines vary substantially from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religion, in particular Hindu, and cultural choices and traditions.Also, Middle Eastern and Central Asian influences have occurred on North Indian cuisine from the years of Mughal rule.Indian cuisine is still evolving, as a result of the nation’s cultural interactions with other societies.

Clothing

Indian clothing is closely identified with the colorful silk saris worn by many of the country’s women. A traditional piece of clothing for men is the dhoti, an unstitched piece of cloth that is tied around the waist and legs. Men also wear a kurta, a loose shirt that is worn about knee-length. For special occasions, men wear a sherwani or achkan, which is a long coat that with a collar having no lapel. It is buttoned up to the collar and down to the knees. A shorter version of a sherwani is called a Nehru jacket. It is named after Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s prime minister from 1947 to 1964, but Nehru never wore a Nehru jacket. He preferred the achkan, according to Tehelka, an Indian newspaper. The Nehru jacket was primarily marketed to Westerners.

Don’t go to India ?!!!!! …

I will go to India 🇼🇳 🇼🇳 🇼🇳 this beautiful country .. in which there are beautiful traditions.

I invite everyone to go to India …. to visit every city in it …. to enjoy all the details on it . I love India 🇼🇳

New Brunswick is one of the four Atlantic provinces of Canada and home to approximately 760,000 people. The province is home to wide areas of unspoiled nature, as forests occupy the great majority of the province’s land mass. New Brunswick also includes a number of coastal islands.

Saint John is New Brunswick’s largest city (130,000), while Fredericton serves as the capital. The city of Moncton is another important urban center (140,000). New Brunswick is officially bilingual; as over 30 percent of the population speaks French as a first language, while most of the remaining 70 percent are English-speaking. While Canada as a whole is bilingual, New Brunswick is the only constitutionally bilingual province in the country.

New Brunswick Economy and Employment

New Brunswick has a wealth of natural resources that have traditionally formed the center of its economy. With its vast forested areas, lumber products are one of the main exports. Today New Brunswick is home to a modern service-based economy, with major financial and insurance industries leading the way. Canada is investing heavily in encouraging these modern industries in New Brunswick to combat unemployment in fishing and agriculture, which also remain important industries. Many companies are choosing to locate customer service and technical support call-centers in New Brunswick because of the availability of bilingual staff. Information technology has also been a growth industry for the province, and a major beneficiary of investment.

Manufacturing is also a major employer in the province and has been on the rise in the recent years. Much of the heavy industry can be found in Saint John. Leading the manufacturing industries are food and beverages, followed by pulp and paper furniture, metal processing and transportation equipment. The province has also enjoyed increasing tourism as people come to take in the provinces natural beauty. Tourism has been a major source of job creation in the last decade.

New Brunswick Standard of Living

The low cost of living in New Brunswick means that even with a modest income, one can live a comfortable life. Average income for New Brunswick families is $65,910, among the lowest in Canada. At the same time, housing costs, as well as the cost of living generally, are among the lowest in Canada. The cost of heating, power and food are likewise substantially lower than almost anywhere in North America.

The mandatory minimum wage is currently at $10.30/hr. Provincial personal income taxes are slightly above the Canadian average.

New Brunswick is known for having a strong sense of community. Residents have built a warm and friendly atmosphere to the province that is recognized instantly by visitors. The province is also very safe, with crime rates far below the national average.

New Brunswick Residential Housing

Suitable and affordable housing is readily available in New Brunswick.The average price of a house in St. John is approximately $160,000. In addition, the average percentage of household income taken up by ownership costs varies between 21-32%, depending on the type of home involved, and is among the lowest in Canada.

New Brunswick Education

In Canada, all citizens and permanent residents under the age of 20 are entitled to free education through the end of high school through the public school system. As a bilingual province, New Brunswick has parallel public school systems in both English and French for kindergarten right through to Grade 12. New Brunswick is a leader in the use of technology in education, and 100% of its public schools have internet in the classroom. The province has the highest high school graduation rate in Canada at more than 86%.

Postsecondary education in New Brunswick is provided by four publicly funded universities; a community college system, two specialized institutes, a number of small, private denominational colleges, and various private schools that offer career-oriented training. New Brunswick has the third highest undergraduate tuition fees of Canadian provinces, at an average of around $5,500. To help pay for post-secondary schooling, The New Brunswick Department of Education oversees provincial loans, achievement grants, and bursaries for Canadian citizens and permanent residents. Each of the universities and most of the community colleges also offer a variety of scholarship programs for students in financial need or of exceptional academic merit.

The universities in New Brunswick are of top quality, and are playing an important role in the transformation of the province’s economy from natural resources to advanced service and technology. The University of New Brunswick is one of the oldest universities in Canada and has top-rated programs in engineering and computer science. Mount Allison University, located in Sackville, is consistently ranked tops amongst small universities for its education, and has produced more Rhodes Scholars per capita than any other school.

New Brunswick Health Care

Under Canadian Law, all provinces and territories must provide universal, publicly funded health care to all citizens and legal residents of Canada. In other words, most basic health services in Canada are offered at no direct cost to the patient. Certain procedures that are not deemed necessary (such as elective cosmetic surgery and a number of dental care procedures, for example) are generally not covered, but the list of services paid for publicly varies from province to province. New Brunswick Medicare pays for most medically required services provided by medical practitioners. In addition to Medicare, health insurance can be purchased from major private sector insurers.

New Brunswick History

New Brunswick was one of the first areas of Canada to be explored and settled by Europeans. French Explorer Jacques Cartier first arrived in the area that now makes up New Brunswick in 1534. French settlers would return about 70 years later to create the colony which would be known as Acadia. These settlers, along with other French colonists who came to the region from such places as Louisiana, are the ancestors of New Brunswicks present day Francophone population.

At the end of the American Revolutionary war, a number of people living in the American colonies who wished to remain loyal to the British crown fled north to New Brunswick. This group is known as the Loyalists. While many of these refugees were of British origin, many were also immigrants from other places such as Germany and the Netherlands who preferred to be in a British colony, as New Brunswick was at the time. The descendants of this group form a major portion of New Brunswicks residents.

New Brunswick was one of the original four provinces to join Canadian confederation in 1867. Since then the divide between Anglophone and Francophone residents of this province has softened and the result is a truly bilingual province. New Brunswick is now in the midst of an economic transformation. While natural resources are still a major export and employer, more and more New Brunswick residents are working in the service sector.

New Brunswick Culture

New Brunswick has a rich cultural heritage from both its Francophone and Anglophone communities, along with the contributions of generations of immigrants from all over the world. As one of the longest established areas in North America, New Brunswick has cultural and academic institutions that have produced and attracted top artists and thinkers. The Acadian community retains its unique culture and dialect, and has produced some notable poets and writers.

New Brunswick provides a taste of traditional, friendly, rural communities alongside modern cities. The province prides itself on cities with world-class culture and vibrant festivals while retaining a hometown hospitality. This combination has proven very appealing to many immigrants who come to work in the province and soon decide to stay and settle there.

New Brunswick Demographics

New Brunswick is home to approximately 760,000 residents. As this population has remained relatively steady for approximately two decades, the province is looking to encourage immigration to fuel population growth in its cities as they push forward in building an advanced modern economy. New Brunswick has not received the same levels of immigration as Ontario or British Columbia, but it has received a steady stream of newcomers from various places in the world. Today there are small but vibrant immigrant communities contributing in each of New Brunswick’s major cities.

French Canadians account for approximately 30% of New Brunswick’s population. The remainder is primarily English-speaking but claims origins not only from the British isles but also from Germany, the Netherlands and China for example. New Brunswick’s aboriginal population consists of primarily the Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik nations.

New Brunswick Immigration

New Brunswick receives several hundred immigrants each year, a number the province seeks to increase by attracting immigrants through the province’s friendly communities, growing economy and low cost of living. One way they are doing so is through the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program, which allows individuals who wish to live and work in New Brunswick to come to Canada sooner. The program includes streams both for individuals with job offers to work in New Brunswick, and for business applicants who wish to invest or manage businesses in the province.

New Brunswick Government

Canada’s government works on a federal system, with control over certain affairs belonging to the national government in Ottawa, and others under the control of the provincial governments.

The province of New Brunswick has its own democratically-elected parliament (known as the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly) which is found in the provincial capital of Fredericton. 55 representatives are elected to represent their districts for terms of up to five years. The current government of the province is led by the Liberal Party of New Brunswick, headed by Premier Brian Gallant, who took office in October of 2014. As the province and parliament are officially bilingual, the province traditionally elects bilingual leaders.

New Brunswick Major Cities

Saint John

Saint John is the largest city in New Brunswick, with approximately 130 000 residents. Saint John is a very bilingual city split rather evenly between English and French as working languages. The city’s residents are very proud of their individual neighbourhoods, and tend to identify strongly with them, creating a sense of smaller communities within the larger city.

Saint John has a strong industrial base and is home to the greatest concentration of industry found on the Atlantic Coast anywhere north of New York City. In recent years the city has seen a significant amount of redevelopment that has revitalized lands formerly used by the railway. The result is an increasingly vibrant city that is attracting businesses in the service industry.

Fredericton

The provincial capital, Fredericton is home to approximately 95 000 people. Government and education are the main employers in the city, with both federal and provincial administration as well as two universities, the University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University. With a strong student population, the city has a lively culture and is known for its annual Harvest Jazz and Blues festival which attracts international artists to the city. The city also has a growing Information Technology sector, helped by its high percentage of residents with post-secondary education

Moncton

The city of Moncton is the second largest city in New Brunswick, home to roughly 140 000 people, just slightly less than Saint John. It is not likely to stay in second place for long however, as it is the fastest growing urban area east of Toronto. The majority of Moncton’s residents speak English, but nearly 35% of the residents primarily speak French. The only cities in the country that are as bilingual as Moncton are Ottawa and Montreal. Moncton is also home to the Universite de Moncton, the largest French-language university in Canada outside of Quebec.

 

Can we now answer the question “are we sure that we will have a better life in New Brunswick  ?

According to what have we seen in this article ,yes ….but we need to be a hard worker in the land of dreams “New Brunswick”

Le rĂ©gime d’assurance maladie du Nouveau Brunswick paye la plupart des services mĂ©dicaux fournis par les praticiens. En plus du rĂ©gime d’assurance maladie, vous pouvez vous procurer une assurance mĂ©dicale privĂ©e.

L’historique du Nouveau Brunswick

Le Nouveau Brunswick Ă©tait l’une des premiĂšres rĂ©gions du Canada Ă  ĂȘtre dĂ©couverte par les EuropĂ©ens. L’explorateur français Jacques Cartier est arrivĂ© pour la premiĂšre fois dans la province, maintenant connu sous le nom du Nouveau Brunswick, en 1534. Les colons français reviendraient environ 70 ans plus tard pour crĂ©er la colonie connue sous le nom de « L’Acadie ». Ces colons, ainsi que d’autres colons français qui sont venus d’autres endroits, comme la Louisiane, sont les ancĂȘtres de la population francophone actuelle du Nouveau Brunswick.

À la fin de la guerre rĂ©volutionnaire amĂ©ricaine, un certain nombre de personnes vivant dans les colonies amĂ©ricaines qui ont souhaitĂ© demeurer fidĂšles Ă  la couronne britannique se sont sauvĂ©es au nord au Nouveau Brunswick. Ce groupe est connu en tant que les loyalistes. Tandis que plusieurs de ces rĂ©fugiĂ©s Ă©taient d’origine britannique, beaucoup Ă©taient Ă©galement des immigrĂ©s d’autres endroits tels que l’Allemagne et les Pays Bas. Ces derniers ont prĂ©fĂ©rĂ© appartenir Ă  une colonie britannique, puisque le Nouveau Brunswick l’était dans le temps. Les descendants de ce groupe forment une partie importante des rĂ©sidants du Nouveau Brunswick.

Le Nouveau Brunswick Ă©tait l’une des quatre premiĂšres provinces Ă  se joindre Ă  la confĂ©dĂ©ration canadienne en 1867. Depuis, la distinction entre les rĂ©sidants anglophones et francophones de cette province s’est beaucoup attĂ©nuĂ©, ce qui a rĂ©sultĂ© Ă  une province vĂ©ritablement bilingue. Le Nouveau Brunswick est maintenant au milieu d’une transformation Ă©conomique. Tandis que les ressources naturelles demeurent toujours des exportations majeures, de plus en plus de rĂ©sidants du Nouveau Brunswick travaillent dans le secteur du service.

La culture du Nouveau Brunswick

Le Nouveau Brunswick a un acquis une riche culture de ses communautĂ©s francophones et anglophones, ainsi que des immigrants venant du monde entier. En tant qu’un des secteurs les plus Ă©tablis en AmĂ©rique du Nord, le Nouveau Brunswick possĂšde des Ă©tablissements culturels et universitaires qui ont formĂ©s et attirĂ©s les meilleures artistes et thĂ©oriciens. La communautĂ© acadienne a prĂ©servĂ©e son unique culture et dialecte, et a crĂ©Ă© certains poĂštes et auteurs remarquables.

Le Nouveau Brunswick possĂšde des communautĂ©s traditionnelles, amicales, et rurales en plus de ses villes modernes. La province est renommĂ©e pour sa culture mondiale et ses festivals vibrants tout en maintenant une hospitalitĂ© chaleureuse. Cette image est trĂšs attrayante pour beaucoup d’immigrants qui viennent travailler dans la province et dĂ©cide enfin de s’installer.

La démographie du Nouveau Brunswick

Le Nouveau Brunswick habite approximativement 730 000 rĂ©sidants. Tandis que la population est restĂ©e stable pendant approximativement deux dĂ©cennies, la province dĂ©sire attirer l’immigration en Ă©tablissant une Ă©conomie moderne avancĂ©e. Le Nouveau Brunswick n’a pas obtenu les mĂȘmes niveaux d’immigrants qu’en Ontario ou en Colombie-Britannique, mais elle a quand mĂȘme accueilli un nombre dĂ©cent de nouveaux venus de divers endroits du monde. Aujourd’hui, on retrouve plusieurs petites communautĂ©s d’immigrants dans chacune des villes principales du Nouveau Brunswick.

Les Canadiens français comptent pour approximativement 35% de la population du Nouveau Brunswick. Le reste de la population est principalement d’expression anglaise, non seulement d’origines britanniques mais Ă©galement d’Allemagne, des Pays Bas et de la Chine. Presque 4% de la population du Nouveau Brunswick est indigĂšne, principalement de la nation des Mi’kmaq et des Wolastoqiyik.

L’immigration au Nouveau Brunswick

Le Nouveau Brunswick accueille plusieurs centaines d’immigrants par annĂ©e, et cherche Ă  augmenter ce nombre en les attirant vers ses communautĂ©s amicales, son Ă©conomie en pleine croissance et son bas coĂ»t de la vie.

Le Nouveau Brunswick participe au Programme de candidats des provinces, ce qui permet aux individus qui souhaitent habiter et travailler au Nouveau Brunswick de venir au Canada plus tĂŽt. Le programme s’applique aux individus ayant une offre d’emploi au Nouveau Brunswick, et aux entrepreneurs qui souhaitent investir ou gĂ©rer des entreprises dans la province.

Le gouvernement du Nouveau Brunswick

Le gouvernement du Canada travaille sur un systĂšme fĂ©dĂ©ral, tout en gardant un certain contrĂŽle sur des affaires appartenant au gouvernement national Ă  Ottawa, et d’autres appartenant Ă  des gouvernements provinciaux. La province du Nouveau Brunswick dĂ©tient son propre parlement dĂ©mocratique (connu sous le nom de l’AssemblĂ©e lĂ©gislative du Nouveau Brunswick) qui se trouve dans la capitale provinciale de Fredericton. Cinquante-cinq reprĂ©sentants sont Ă©lus afin de desservir leur secteur gĂ©ographique pour un mandat de cinq ans.

Le gouvernement actuel est menĂ© par le parti libĂ©ral du Nouveau Brunswick, et est dirigĂ© par le premier ministre Brian Gallanat, qui a Ă©tĂ© Ă©lu en octobre de 2014. Tandis que la province et le parlement sont officiellement bilingues, la province Ă©lit traditionnellement des chefs bilingues.

Les villes principales du Nouveau Brunswick

D’aprĂ©s ce que nous avons vu dans cet article,oui …….mais nous devons etres un travailleur acharnĂ© au pays des reves “Nouveau- Brunswick”.

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad (part three)

 

Introduction:

Conrad’s famous novella is based on a real journey the author took up the Congo in 1890, during King Leopold II of Belgium’s horrific rule. It is a fantastic, imaginative journey to find a man named Kurtz who has lost his mind in the African jungle. It is a journey into inner space; a metaphorical investigation into the turbid waters of the human soul. It is a political journey into the dark heart of European colonialism. It is a nightmare journey, into horror. It is a journey to nowhere, set on a boat lying motionless and at anchor on the river Thames, which also “has been one of the dark places on the earth”.

There’s no shortage of journeys to talk about in relation to Heart of Darkness – but selfishly, I want to talk about my own. Few things have had such a profound effect on me as my passage towards understanding this book. When I began to realize how many possibilities the book contains, and how beautifully Conrad brings out their meanings, I felt enlightenment. A vague kind of enlightenment, it’s true. One, in fact, described by Conrad himself in a typically glorious.In this piece of writing we are going to analyse part three;events and characters ;

 

Summary of part III :

The Russian trader describes his precarious relationship with Kurtz. He has known him for two years and, when Kurtz fell ill it was he who nursed him back to health. Marlow hears of Kurtz’s ivory raids and of his mysterious power over the natives. Kurtz is adored; as a result, there is nothing to restrain him from doing whatever he wants, even to killing. Now, however, Kurtz is again ill, and the Russian begs Marlow to take him quickly away from the village.

As Marlow surveys Kurtz’s house he notices that fence posts surrounding it are topped with human skulls. Suddenly, Kurtz appears, carried on stretcher. Marlow describes him as being very tall and thin; his head is bald and white as ivory. Marlow gives Kurtz the letters he has brought and retires to the deck of the boat with the harlequin. They both watch in fascination as a magnificent native woman appears.

The manager and Kurtz have an argument about Kurtz’s “unsound method” and, almost in spite of himself; Marlow finds himself on Kurtz’s side. The harlequin informs Marlow that it was Kurtz who ordered the attack on the riverboat, and worries about the effect of this on Kurtz’s reputation. The harlequin then disappears into the jungle after borrowing some shoes and English tobacco.

Marlow awakens at midnight to discover that Kurtz has disappeared. He experiences a deep “moral shock” but does not sound an alarm. Instead, he goes off into the jungle, alone, in search of Kurtz. On the bank of the river he finds a wide trail. Ahead, Kurtz, too weak to walk, is crawling on all fours. Marlow circles ahead of Kurtz and confronts him only a few feet from a native fire. He reasons with Kurtz, telling him that he will be utterly lost if he does not return to the riverboat. In the ensuring argument, Marlow sees that Kurtz himself is rational, but that his “soul” is “mad”. Marlow wins the argument and helps Kurtz back to the boat.

The next day, Kurtz and Marlow prepare to leave. As the boat gets under way the natives gather on shore, but when Marlow blows the whistle they all rush off into the jungle. Only the beautiful, native woman remains.

Kurtz and Marlow talk as the journey continues. Kurtz tells Marlow of his grandiose plans for the future and of the woman he had planned to marry, his intended.

One night, while the boat is stopped for repairs, Kurtz begins to feel that he is going to die. Close to death, Kurtz goes through a hideous transformation, as if a “veil has been rent”.kurtz dies after uttering his final words, “the horror! The horror!” the pilgrims bury Kurtz.

Marlow himself becomes very ill and, still physically and spiritually shaky; he goes back to Brussels with Kurtz’s papers and the knowledge of his reputation. He finds out a general deal more about the man Kurtz has been from a company employee and from Kurtz’s cousin. He goes to see Kurtz’s intended, and finds her devoted to the illusion that Kurtz was a great and good man. When she questions Marlow about Kurtz’s final words, he cannot bring himself to tell her the truth, telling her instead that Kurtz died uttering her name.

The setting returns to the deck of the Nellie, and Marlow’s story ends with him sitting silently in the “pose of a mediating Buddha”. And the unnamed narrator looks off into the dark sky which makes the water way seem to lead into the heart of an immense darkness.

Analysis of Part three main characters:

1/The Russian Trader:

The part three opens with the description Marlow gives to the Russian. Kurtz’s devoted companion, he is an idealistic explorer who has wandered to the Congo on a Dutch ship and has been caught in the web of Kurtz’s obsessive ivory hunt. Marlow sees him as the prototype of youthful innocence. While the Russian seems naivetĂ© might prevent him from understanding the diabolic nature of Kurtz, he suggests that Kurtz has enlarged his mind implying that he, acting the fool, is perhaps a wise fool. His outward appearance reflects his moral isolation which seen as a reason for Marlow not to be a victim to moral chaos. He can be seen as a symbol of civilization, a surface of truth, or an outward impression of sanity in the midst of darkness.

Marlow:

Marlow’s function is not only to comment as a spokesman for Conrad’s fundamental outlook, but to function as a character who describing his journey of self- discovery, his personal growth of consciousness to the point that he ultimately becomes aware of authentic reality. The particular point of view with which Marlow describes his journey to the Congo is one that views the past from the present’s perspective. He remarks that he did not know himself before setting out. His journey is one in which he gains knowledge and experience, the climax occurring when he confronts Kurtz. When Marlow returns to Europe, he is changed and more knowing man. He discovers that it is only superficial knowledge that people have .in part three Marlow makes his firm recognition that heart of darkness, represented by Kurtz, contains the forbidden, secret knowledge of reality, the truth that is found behind the surface of appearance. Marlow’s evaluation of Kurtz is ambiguous since he finds it hard to explain Kurtz words and deeds. Kurtz can inspire a positive emotional reaction in Marlow with some evil. Another test that makes Marlow’s journey unfinished is his confrontation with the intended. This latter believes in an illusion through her deep love to a false Kurtz. So it was for Marlow to lie not to disillusion her gives us the image of the changed Marlow after the journey by exercising responsibility and his knowledge of human limitations.

Kurtz:

Kurtz who was introduced earlier in part two enjoyed a detailed description in part three. He was completely degenerated and without restrain. He is the unique victim of colonization; the wilderness captures him and he turns his back on the people and customs that were once a part of him. Kurtz is described as “a remarkable man” lacks “some small matter which, when the pressing need arose, could not be found under his magnificent eloquence. He is ambitious for power and fame, and nothing can prevent him from killing

Intended:

Unlike Kurtz’s mistress, the intended is a civilized European woman of high values. She is a Fidel woman who loves Kurtz during his life and even after his death and believes that he is an ideal man. When Marlow visits her, he finds that she is still in mourning though a year has passed of Kurtz death. She asks Marlow about the last words Kurtz uttered .he lies and says that it was her name .because she is naïve ,she believes that  and more than this she says it is sure that this is the case.

Is heart of darkness a racist novella?

Conrad has been criticized to be a racist in heart of darkness. This appears in the hole novel in general and in part III in particular .this manifested in the bad description made by Marlow of natives who were kurtz’servants when he says “
as if by enchantment, streams of human beings –of naked human beings –with spears in their hands, with bows, with shields, with wild glances and savage movements, were poured into the clearing by dark –faced and pensive forest. In addition and according to Chinua Achebe, he is pure racist and he argues that in his famous article “an image of Africa: Racism in Conrad’s heart of darkness». For the African writer, Conrad lavishes a whole page to describe an African woman who has been Kurtz’s mistress in which he says “she was savage and superb, wild –eyed and magnificent 
she stood looking at us without a stir and like the wilderness itself, with an air of brooding over an inscrutable purpose”. In returns, he puts the European Intended in a good position through his description «she came forward all in black with a pale head, floating towards me in dusk .She was in mourning


she had a mature capacity for fidelity, for belief and suffering”. This makes racism very evident within the story

Conclusion :

Part three is the journey’s last days and the novel’s last part. Conrad uses this part to transmit all what he has learned from his experience through the mouth of Marlow. What is significant in this part is Marlow’s discovery of the core of Mr. Kurtz. Also this part mainly focuses on the changes in personality of the great men Marlow and Kurtz and what happened to them in Africa. Marlow comes to understand himself, his moral responsibilities and the tragic limitations involved in human freedom. Kurtz on the other hand, starting out like Marlow as an emissary of light, cannot conquer the potential of evil within himself. Marlow learns through Kurtz experience that man is defined by his work. Kurtz work has created a jungle’s hell which destroys him. All in all, the novel and mainly part three deals with the significant moral conflict. Conrad could show the latent upon him. As Edward Garnett: “for the art of heart of darkness as in every psychological master piece lies in the relation of the things of the spirits of things of the flesh, of the invisible life to the visible, of the sub-conscious within us” .
