Resilience- dasheni

One of karana's aspect is her resilience. Though the white men's ship dosen't return for her for eighteen years, and though her efforts to establish a comfortable life on the island are repeatedly thwarted, she never shows sign of despair. Karana is often sad, as when her brother was killed, or frightened, as when she was injured by the sea elephant and stalked by wild dogs, but she never gives up. She always looking ahead to her new task on the island.
