She attempts to make her parents proud by finding someone for herself but in order to truly love and be with him she had to compromise the traditions of an arranged marriage.
Born to a Moroccan father and a French mother had a great impact on my upbringing. More so, being the child of a diplomat. It has definitively brought its shares of benefits and sometimes unexpected challenges and you can say that I am a Third Culture Kid (TCK). I have had the unique experience of being exposed to and living in cultures different from my home culture for long periods of time and that exposure has been found to have an impact on the level of authoritarianism that I am exhibiting. It has been brought to my attention that in my professional and personal life, I have a tendency to try to impose my opinion on others. Moving forward, I am seeing myself trying to change this perception that others have of me as being “too aggressive” (not in the physical sense), “too abusive” or “too direct” and even sometimes excessively curt or critical. In retrospect, I found myself many times thinking if something I had said or a reaction I had was uncalled for. I know that a change to a specific trait(s) in one’s personality cannot occur overnight, but admitting that I have flaws is a good precursor to change. My assessment survey also unraveled an interesting gap (negative) between how effective of a leader I think I am and what others think. I breathe a sigh of relief when seeing that at least I am being seen as a somewhat effective leader despite being too demanding and direct. Ultimately, my vision or the “big change” as I would like to call it, should start by
Kuhn (1996) describes a paradigm as the accepted norm of a science. The standards, rules, and scientific tradition one follows in a particular area of scientific study comprise the paradigm. Research, such as the one described here, “is a cumulative enterprise, eminently successful in its aim, the steady extension of the scope and precision of scientific knowledge” (p. 52). The study provided
Trips to India become less and less frequent. Ashoke begins dressing like his American colleagues and Ashima retires her Sari, a traditional female outfit, for more relaxed dress while away from other Indians. Being in America for a long enough period of time, they begin to celebrate native holidays and start decorating their house. What seems to persist is the roles in their marriage. After all this time, Ashima continues to cook all of the meals. She doesn’t do much besides fetch groceries with the money given to her by her husband. Ashoke produces all of the money for the family, pays all the bills, takes care of all of the family’s paperwork, and handles any other essential tasks. While attending college, he begins a relationship with an American girl named Maxine. Maxine’s parents, Gerald and Lydia, show a complete contrast with Gogol’s in terms of public intimacy. Bengali spouses do not show public affection while Maxine’s just openly kiss and cuddle. For reasons such as these, Gogol’s parents tell him that the relationship will never work. After they break up and Gogol gives up on the love scene, Ashima loosely goes back to traditions by introducing another Bengali girl he should talk to named Moushumi. When they get married, the parents take over and throw a big Indian Ceremony with tons of people. They wanted to throw a normal American wedding but gave into their parents’ insistence on an
Thomas Kuhn in his scientific model breaks down the history of development of science into three stages which include normal of science, accumulation of anomaly and then the paradigm shift (Kuhn, 1996). The normal period of science starts with the creation of an accepted boundary for scientific findings by the science community called the paradigm. This paradigm provides objective tools used by scientist to solve scientific problem thereby creating theories that fit within the boundaries. Following this is the period of natural testing of the paradigm and expanding the paradigm boundaries to
Marshall Sahlins’ has a quote that we stand on the shoulders of giants to shit on their heads reflects the idea of paradigm shift. The shoulders personify the collective knowledge of those researchers before us, as students it is where we gain our information. It is not through our own work that we initially study our respective fields; we study the accumulation of work that those giants have codified. The shit represents new ideas, criticism, and reworking of the previously held beliefs. The constant questioning of beliefs, seeking new answers is an intrinsic feature of scientific inquiry. This holds true not only in the hard sciences but in the social sciences as well, some may say to an even greater extent, due to the nature of the
In order to prove that the Hip-Hop culture’s beliefs and goals have changed, I am mostly going to rely heavily on the culture’s music. Hip-Hop music has been the voice of the Hip-Hop culture since the beginning. It has been an outlet for those in the Hip-Hop culture to vent. To understand the changes in beliefs for the culture of Hip-Hop I must first distinguish what the original beliefs were. Then I must look at Hip-Hop music now to compare and contrast. This must be done using mostly first hand knowledge. This will give an actual inside look on the culture and eliminate preconception, lies or concealment.

Separating the crowd and the game from the passage, in relation to Junior and his cultural experiences, we see the self and intersecting struggles that he faces. Junior is represented as an outsider of the passage. Although belonging to a team, and a community, his reoccurring struggles of identity become clear with the overwriting domination of betrayal. Junior best describes himself within this passage, through his humour, to cover his passive fear of rejection. The skipping of thoughts and ideas, alongside the jokes and laughing within himself, it seems to show some immaturity, developing, his own matrix of domination. The truth behind alcoholism and cultural acceptance, becomes evident within the passage. Acknowledging that although his

It may be religiously important to ask the permission of the father for the hand in marriage of the daughter, yet society is fading away from this ideology it seems. The protagonist envisions this view at the beginning of the movie, yet must comply with the traditions. Only a degree of discomfort is brought to the protagonist, but by coupling the ironic humor, this creates an extended metaphor for current generations. To which, literary media and its merit are meant to represent their ideals, and they act as though they wholeheartedly believe it. Making the scenario
