“Two Kinds” a short story out of Amy Tan’s book “The Joy Luck Club” is a representation of the pressures immigrant children face from their parents. In the story, we follow a young girl named Jing-Mei as she embarks down the road to becoming a Prodigy. Her mother believed that “you could be anything you wanted to be in America” (Tan). For Jing-Mei that meant her mother believed she could become instantly famous. “Of course, you can be a prodigy, too”, her mother told her (Tan).
Then, he showed them the picture that he had and all sisters start looking together to see what develops. Finally, Jing-Mei completes her mother’s dream of reuniting the family and his father was happy to see all of them together. In my thoughts, when I was reading the story, I was thinking about the latest Pakistan movie “Bhaijaan” which is basically similar story as Jing Mei. The movie shows how much the pain one little girl has to go through when she was separated from her family in her childhood. She was going for the vacation with her family and somehow she was separated on the Pakistan broader.

Referring to this aspect of marriage and Oseki’s decision to get a divorce, her father thought about how he could let her change the fine clothes she was wearing as a married woman to the working robe of a daughter of poor parents (Higuchi 247). Here, the author reveals a harsh reality with respect to the idea that woman without a well-off man does not have proper conditions for organizing her life, which means that female autonomy is impossible while she is either a wife or a daughter. In “Two Modern Girls,” Hanako, in her naivety, cannot comprehend that Yoshiro is only out to use her. The reason why Yoshida asked for marrying the girls was that “he deferred his debts and has asked not one but two well-to-do women to marry him” (Shikin 473).

These two sisters have grown together all through their life’s, creating a strong bound, and the fact that her family and a “old guy” is taking away her sister is something she can’t stand. In the end Nea believes that she is saving Sourdi from Mr.Chhay and her mother. However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.
