These people often representing new identities (Mills 261). These immigrants try to find their identities for some time because they are not calmed mentally. They never feel at home neither in a host country or their homelands. They become depressed and shattered. They miss their home and it becomes an integral part in their lives, they see home as attractive thing and for them home is something they lack of, they don’t feel at home and desire to get back to their homes (Sabra, 93).
Identity Crisis in Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake The present paper is an effort to understand the conflicts of the second generation of Indian Diaspora with special reference to The Namesake,a novel by Jhumpa Lahiri. Jhumpa Lahiri, herself has been the child of Indian immigrants- middle class Bengali parents, born in London and grown up in Rhodes Island, America. The Name sake, therefore, is a kind of auto biography as Lahiri authentically portrays her diaspora experiences as a second generation immigrant in the book. Experiences of Lahiri as a growing child of immigrant parents in America are well expressed through the character of Gogol in The Name sake. As a child she is the second generation of Indian Diaspora who also has faced the quest for identity which will have no answers.
Homelessness is a serious problem all over the world. This problem used to be of an emergent issue but is now seen as a chronic problem (Howard 38). Almost everywhere people go there will be homeless on the street or overcrowded shelters nearby. Chronic, transitional and episodic are the three main types of homelessness (Byrne 3). Although most people think that having no money makes you homeless, in fact, to be considered homeless you just have to not have a permanent home.
To understand who I am, it is necessary to know my past. I was made by refugees. Refugees who fought hard to stay in the US, who paid their taxes and was still discriminated upon, who failed to finish school because I was created. Refugees who work day by day just to ensure we have food in our fridge, a roof over our heads, and a warm bed to come home to at night. Refugees who gave me hope to thrive and reach beyond what society thought about children who were born into poverty.
“They feel isolated and mentally sick. Ashoke feels more burdensome than his wife because there is no one with them. They are amongst strangers. According to Sue Brenann Hospital symbolizes control and authority ““where individuals are subjected to disciplinary regimes aimed producing ‘healthy’ and self-sufficient citizens of the nation” (6). He thinks he has migrated for the sake of good life and better opportunities but feels isolated and burdened “Although it is Ashima who carries the child, he too, feels heavy, with the thought of life, of his life and life about to come from it” (13).
They have to deal with only making a small amount of money and working in harsh conditions at times, in order to make that little money that they do. Living in a foreign country and making only minimum wage can be hard and it’s even harder if you have no family or none that you can talk to, many of these immigrants leave their families behind in order to make money to be able to provide and have a better living back home. Cultural awareness: I think that this film was a reminder to me that many families do go through this and it is not easy to do. We sometimes take things for granted, like having our family around or making “x” amount of money at our job. These individuals make less than most of us do and they still are able to send it back home and provide for their families.
Even with incentive that the state offer to foster parent, the foster parents still gratefully decline. This was so hard for me to face these children because we couldn’t find them permanent placement. Sadly, each year many children age out of the child welfare system without the opportunity to obtain permanent. This also goes for immigrant children as

With the continual tribal wars and rebellions people, especially expatriates like Salim and Nazruddin, have affected with their past. Indar, Mahesh, Nazruddin manage to survive in the terrific journey; but Salim, who has tried himself to overcome the nostalgic feel, could not succeed as the pressures crushed him and he could not bear it. As the whole society has the same feeling of longing for past but the social and political conditions are not favorable for them. The bush obviously has created the feel of nostalgia and it is the representation of the people’s mind that once they lived and had the peaceful
