Through this conversation, we can realize the incredible influence that social code has had over people. Therefore, we can clearly figure out that racism has become a part of daily life at that time in Burma i.e. people are racist without them even meaning it. Analyzing Flory further, we know that he disagrees with the social behavior of the Europeans towards the natives, but still does follow this path of social conduct when he has been pressurized into a decision. With a complete understanding that Dr. Veraswami’s future lies in becoming a member of the European Club, Flory signs a piece of paper saying that his friend should not be elected.
This embarrasses Gogol so he is constantly trying to compensate by blending in with Americans. One of the main issues holding him back from being Indian under the radar is his name. It is different and does not go unnoticed which is why he begins to resent the name, his parents for choosing it, and ultimately everything that makes him different from other Americans. This is the main conflict that hangs over the Ganguli household, but it is manifested in smaller day-to-day conflicts. Gogol is teased about his name, his parent’s want him to identify with an aspect of Bengali culture, but he resists, the parents want to visit India, and Gogol and Sonia complain and feel their summer is ruined, Gogol has romantic relationships that his parents don’t understand, and finally Gogol moves away and changes his name, and barely keeps up with his parents.
These two men show the qualities of friendship by being honest and loyal to each other. No matter what the situation is their friendship always comes first, even though they have a little greed within them, they do not let it control them. He thinks that “golds a devilish sort of thing” and not used for much but, it ruins a lot of friendships. Howard shows his selflessness when he goes to help the little boy Indian boy at the camp, not knowing what may happen to him while he is gone. He thinks about the boy instead of himself.
Love is something that is pure and truthful. When someone possesses a genuine love for someone they would never do anything to hurt that person. Raymond Dolphus, a character in To Kill A Mockingbird, had biracial children and pretends to be drunk because white people like himself won’t ever understand the way he lives and he does this to protect his children and his family. When Mr. Dolphus starts talking to Scout and Dill about why he pretends to be a drunk he says, “It ain’t honest but it’s mighty helpful to folks. Secretly Miss Finch, I’m not much of a drinker, but you see they could never, never understand that I live like I do because that’s the way I want to live” (Lee 268).
Willy knows deep down that he is overall a pretty unsuccessful man but he continues to tell his two sons that he is successful and that all they need in life is to be well liked in order to be like him. Although this is very untrue and Willy is not very well liked and is certainly not successful he puts on a front like its all one needs in life. Willy thinks that his attempts to kill himself are secret but all along Linda knows what he is doing
Although George is all mother hen around Lennie, he can be rather gruff with outsiders. He’s suspicious of nearly everyone, except Slim, and seems to take his time warming up to people. This general distrust puts George’s relationship with Lennie in even greater contrast – it’s pretty extraordinary that George has opened up, and though he doesn’t run around declaring that he’s BFF with Lennie, it’s pretty clear that his gruff affection is more than anyone else will ever get. George doesn’t exactly spend the whole book declaring much of anything about him. But his final act in the novella reveals that he has a clear sense of right and wrong – and that he truly loves Lennie.
His community, however, is not very impressed with John's new personality. As he is newly educated, he understands racial and social injustices and shares his opinions with those within his community. At the party, he lets everyone know that people's religious beliefs or educational status do not necessarily matter, as the most important part was their own personality. The black John decided he wants to open up a school for the people in his community, since he wanted to give back. When he is given the permission to open this school, he is told to follow a racially unequal curriculum that promotes submission to the United States' racial hierarchy.
We, the audience, see the situation from Michael's viewpoint and have little sympathy with Eileen or Annie, despite their good intentions. (K) When Rory is introduced, it is obvious from the start that he poses a threat to the smooth running of Carrigmore as it is envisioned by Eileen and Annie. He is a normal, if slightly rebellious, young man. However, his hairstyle, his mode of dress, his taste in music and his coarse language all cause conflict with the carers in the home. We are shown an unpleasant side to the way in which those with disabilities are treated in our society.
An example of this would be, “ I usually Lone it anyway”. Which shows his feelings on how he doesn’t care. Also when the reader imagines Ponyboy you get a lower class hoodlum image but when you read on Ponyboy doesn’t fit the Hoodlum stereotype as you find he is very intelligent as he has a high IQ and makes good grades but doesn’t like to show it as his older brother Darry expects a high grades from him. In addition Ponyboy admires his brother Sodapop as he
As pietri writes, ”Manuel/died hating all of them/Juan/Miguel/Milagros/and Olga/because they all speak broken english/more fluently than he did”(54). Pietri sees same language as the thing that brings people together, and the language can be transferred from generation to generation. That is to say one generation can easily identify another generation when they speak the same language. However, these immigrants are keeping their hope in America while assimilating themselves to the American language in order to reap American dream which Pietri describes as fallacy. If the immigrants kept their language, it would help them to maintain their values and norms, when they speak the same language.
