Kermani’s short story “The Vice-Principal”

“It takes as its storyline a conflict between a schoolboy, Majid, and the vice-principal of the school, over an essay Majid has written on a familiar school topic: “Who Renders The Greatest Service to Mankind?”. The story unfolds to become a meditation on the conflict between oppressive authority and the power of the moral imagination to empathise with another.”
