Andoju Srinivasulu, Dr. Suneetha Yadav JCR. 2020: 2645-2647
Ashima Ganguli a silent yet catalytic character in the novel, “The Namesake” written by Jhumpa Lahiri and adapted to screen by Mira Nair with the same name. She is portrayed like any girl next-door demeanor in India without an individualistic nor with any independent motif but her spectatorial perspective, with which the novel begins and the film ends, does most of the fulfillment in the narrative that has a soul full of India. Ashima when goes to America does not know to drive a car, not used to going alone in the streets, she despises the way shared laundry works in America so washes clothes by herself but for Ashoke Ganguli her husband’s disapproval. Ashima takes a lot of time to adjust in America but gains independence increasingly in that new land than how much she had it in her homeland, India.
