The author refers to the make-up department as the symbol of national integration. People from various parts of India worked together there.
The division of the Gemini Studios’ makeup room was an example of national integration. According to the author, this is so because people from different regions and religions worked together in that department. The department had a hierarchy system. The department was headed by a Bengali who was succeeded by a Maharashtrian. The other helpers included a Dharwar Kannadiga, an Andhra, a Madras Indian Christian, an AngloBurmese and the local Tamils.
