    written by Jhumpa Lahiri, Ashoke and Ashima, who are Bengalis and moved to America for a better education and life, try to maintain their culture.

Moreover, Bengalis never think of staying away from their family. For instance, Ashoke in his twenties didn’t go far from his family except from his journey to some cities in India.

Bengalis do their everyday tasks together; they don’t want to be apart from their family members for a second. They always…

    misunderstand me, she simply didn't smell very right. I mean young ladies ought to notice a specific way-like infant powder, new garments and scent. Something that was silly, y'know. Jean, I swear, possessed an aroma similar to an organic product serving of mixed greens or Old Spice. I despise Old Spice. I mean I like Jean fine, y'know. She's extraordinary, yet I just couldn't notice her. Christ, I should be nuts. Out of the blue I begin to envision myself as the old mariner in the Old Spice…

In the small rooms, it’s a complicated dance that we’ve slowly perfected after hundreds of patients. 40+ patients, 13 hours, 6 rooms, 2 techs, 1 doctor...and 1 furiously typing scribe. In a typical day, we inevitably see a host of lacerations, rashes, UTIs, and twisted ankles.
