Her family is livings life where they cannot control what could happen to them because they don’t have money to fix these problems nor do they have the power to stop them. “The strife has lasted too young and had been too painful for me to call him back to continue it.” (pg. 100) This quote is fulfilled with grief and sorrow because Nathan and Rukmani’s last child, Kuti dies. At this point in the story, death is being caused because they don’t have enough money to support their children or feed them. Markandaya is showing fear by Rukmani not being able to support her children therefore they will die off if nothing is done.
This may be due to the fact that she was in denial about her mortality, and it wasn’t until the end of her story that she came face to face with the fact that she is going to die. When that realization hits a person, it is overwhelming, even for a strong brilliant woman like Vivian. She realized she was lacking that human interaction and love that is necessary in every person’s life. The flashbacks in the film tell us she was never really interested in having that relationship with anyone, she kept putting it off, because her work came first. There is a valuable lesson the audience can take away from the film as well, being that we should value our time, because we never know how long it is really going to
Granny's displeasure with her daughter reaches far beyond just her whispering in the doorway.Granny often thinks about Hapsy, the daughter she wants to see the most, but Hapsy isn’t around. She felt like Cornelia was treating her like a child. The thing that most annoyed her was that Cornelia thought she was deaf, dumb, and blind. As she felt herself slipping into death, she could not find a sign of God, George, or John to welcome her. When she finally passes she calls out for God to give her a sign.
After talking for a while my mom got off the phone and started talking to me, I remember one distinct thing she said to me. She said that she wished my grandparents were alive and that if they were alive we would not go back. I questioned what she meant, but then it came to me. She did not want to go back to our home and have to deal with my dad. My mom did not want to listen to my dad anymore, she was tired of him and want to be some where he was not.
Dear Mother, I guess I haven’t been much of a daughter these last months, after I ran out like I did and didn’t call or write. I’m sorry for running out and leaving you like that. I was mad and I needed to get away. Me and you’ll never see eye to eye about that producer and the letter he said he’d send. I guess you’ll believe what you’re going to believe and I’ll believe in myself.
When the storm of grief had spent itself she went away to her room alone. She would have no one follow her.” (Pg. 1, 3rd Paragraph). She even says that she would cry at his funeral. While she is sad at first she starts to stop crying every time she thinks about being free from her husband and being and independent women.
My wife would send me emails stating that Rex was not well. She was very aware of the severity and sought out help from the school. She was sadly turned away, because they did not have a counselor to provide the deployment group counseling that is needed at times of war. She was in a battle of her own that I would not fully understand for seven months. I came time for my something that I had dreamed of.
I didn’t see the truth of the matter back then and I remained unaware of this character defect until years later. I knew deep down that I had lost my way in life. Every time that truth would come into my mind, I would push it back down. This left me looking like an unaccomplished, unfocused 26-year-old woman, who had moved back in to her dad’s house. To some, all those factors would have been enough to elicit a change.

I rushed to my reading-desk and phoned my neighbor. I hustled him to cooperate with me. I demanded him to go outside and watch the door to see if he could catch the person doing this. He went out into the front and hid behind our shed which gave him a clear view of the back door. At the same time, I sat on the couch waiting… “BAM, BAM, BAM” on the back door, I jumped up and dashed into my room.
