At school all of the girls line up twice a day and mourn the war dead. They stand in single file lines and beat their breasts. Marjane reflects that self-flagellation is a national ritual. The picture on page 95 is disturbing. Some of the girls are brainwashed and some of the girls, like Marji, are forced to go through the motions. The picture looks like there is a mob mentality.
