Give back to them for all of their hard toil. Being a child of immigrant parents makes you appreciate life so much because everyday it’s an opportunity to be the best you can be to make everyone around you proud. My parents can’t got back to school and get an education so being able to see me succeed is worth their hard work. My parents have taught me to never give up. I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open.
This is such an unfair way to treat a person who was invited to stay and work here because of her talent.” (Mukherjee) and on the other hand there is a different reaction from the other sister Bharati by saying “I need to feel like a part of the community that I’ve have adopted. I need to put roots down, to vote and make the difference that I can. The price that the immigrant willingly pays, and that the exile avoids, is the trauma of self-transformation.”(Bharati). With this example being said identity comes in to place because everyone has one community that there are a part of and that’s what makeup ones identity. Each one of the characters in this story Mira and Bharati still are different in their ways of interacting with the country they have chosen to live in, Mira lives like an expatriate Indian but Bharati lives as a part of the community and it’s how the condition of
He smiles, “I seldom spoke Bengali in school. Not even with the other boys from Bangalitola.” They know the rules of adaptation. I notice that he is handsomer than me, and he proudly declares, “Here they think I am a proper Banarsi, fair and robust.” I remember Bengalis are infamous for their bad health. We could have met in Kolkata. We could have met in Delhi.
It is full of twists and turns. An immigrant has to restart their life and learn the roadmap of their new environment; especially for Ashoke and Ashima coming into the American culture being Bengali. Bengali is a very rigorous culture, with very structured lives for specifically women and children. Children had a standard that they had to live up to. They had to follow guidelines that would keep them in check and prepared for later in life callings.
It is a good word to remember, because it’s a word that changes our lives forever for those who love Jesus. On Day 6 we talked about how to ask Jesus to live in your heart. If you have never done that before, and you would like to now, or if you don’t know how to do that, we have a simple prayer you might like to say in the back of this book, that will help you do that. It is a small prayer, but it will bring big changes to your life, because Jesus will come into your life and become your Saviour.
Therefore, forgiveness is the key for people to live in peace and happiness. Amir had to deal with pain and pleasure of forgiveness and truly shows the power to affect someone’s life. Forgiveness is hard for many to do which can lead to holding on bad emotions. Forgiving someone isn’t as easy as just saying “I forgive you”. For someone to
Sacrifice. The idea of a person carrying everyone else’s suffering for one’s own personal happiness is not only a sacrifice of that child’s life but you have now sacrificed you integrity and the morals you have as a human being. In ‘The Lottery’ The whole village sacrifices an innocent human every year for the hope of a good crop season. So now you have sacrificed a human’s life, their families life, and they way they have to go on without them now. All for something that’s not even guaranteed.
Christmas is important to me because it is the only holiday where I get to bond with my relatives and family. Christmas is where we catch up on all the important things we have done and how we are doing in life. Christmas is also the number one holiday where my relatives give us the teenager's life lessons that really aren't necessary or we already know but we still have to listen. Christmas is not only my favorite holiday because I get presents but it is my favorite holiday because I get to give presents as well. Christmas is one of the holidays where I give back to those around me who I appreciate the most and I am not saying that materialistic things count, but giving to those back for all they have done for me is just a small thank you, it is also really heartwarming to see them get what they have wanted.
I start to think of before we started our journey, Bangladesh was not familiar, I thought of it as unsafe, but now I have realised that my own country, the one I have grown to love is not the safe beautiful country as I had once thought. Our new life will be great, I say to myself, it will be full of wonder and excitement as mother and I adjust to the new country. Deep down I know that I am scared, despite what I try and tell myself. The thousands of people awaiting entrance to Bangladesh all look traumatized, their eyes are sad and depressed but are somehow hopeful. Their body’s, skinny from malnutrition make me want to look away.
Bangladesh is home to diverse ethnic communities. There are 54 ethnic communities living with the Bengali-majority people in the country. Among these communities women face many types of challenges. They suffer from many different kinds of problems such as domestic violence, sexual harassment, discrimination of wages and social injustice as well. They are also far from benefitting from free legal aid services from the government due to their ignorance and lack of awareness.
