In private, Murugan reveals to Farnaby that he is in fact the Rani’s son and will be assuming control over Pala in a few days as its new Raja Both the Rani and Murugan were raised outside of Palanese culture, however, and so both are largely westernised, with Murugan especially influenced by materialism and consumerist greed Contrary to these philosophies, most Palanese islanders engage in peaceful living, intellectual pursuits, and deep spiritualism that avoids superstition.
The culture of Pala is the offspring of a Scottish secular humanist medical doctor, who made a medical visit to the island in the 19th century and decided to stay and work with its Raja , who embodies the island’s Mahayana Buddhist tradition, to create a society that merges the best of East and West.
In addition to great weather most of the year, Cozumel’s popularity is due in part to beautiful beaches and being a major stop on most western Caribbean cruises, which take advantage of the destination’s well-known emphasis on scuba diving and snorkeling.
The Palanese people are well aware that they will likely be invaded soon by Colonel Dipa’s forces from Rendang, though they are resigned to pacifism Farnaby too has been accepting the potential downfall of the island as a given, though he realises with discomfort that he may be an instrumental factor in causing such a downfall.
