how did aram describe the spirit s of his teibe in the story the summer of beautiful white horse? what was the hall mark of his tribe?

Dear student,

The narrator says that the distribution of the spirit in their tribe was from the beginning capricious and vagrant because a man could be the biological father of his son but in temperament and disposition,the son and father would be two totally different people. He talks about Mourad who was the son of Zorab but in spirit he was more akin to Khosrove who was a man of placid disposition and nothing could unnerve him,not even his own house on fire. Mourad was believed to be the natural descendant of this man though his father was a different man,practical in nature. This was how it worked in the tribe, men had biological as well as spiritual fathers. Aram felt that there was a crazy streak in the Garoghlanian family. The Garoghlanian tribe lived in abject poverty and even then they had been honest. They were known for their honesty so much so that John Byro gave them a benefit of doubt and did not claim his horse even when he could recognise it as his own.
