Rupu - the teenage daughter of Swapan & Tanima, grew up in America as the second generation immigrant from India. The story of her growing up has always been fraught with stress due to cultural differences between the two generations - parents who are desperate to cling on to their Indian roots while the daughter, who is born and brought up on American teenage culture, is more comfortable with that identity. The difference in outlook tends to deepen on a family vacation to India where Rupu is constantly getting badgered with snide remarks about her American lifestyle. The only person who empathized with Rupu is her mother - who understood the gulf between the two worlds and found that it is not Rupu's fault to be struggling with a culture that is so alien to her. Will Rupu survive this cultural onslaught or will better sense prevail to bridge the chasm?? Tune in to this sensitive social chronicle by Author Ananya Das, about looming identity crisis among the second generation Indian Americans who are stretched between the bipolar worlds, in this 'My StoryGenie' Bengali Audiobooks series presentation.Show more
Bikram is an Indian software professional who had migrated to America many years back on work and have had since then settled down permanently like many skilled and highly educated Indian professionals in that country. After few years, he started his own family and got married to homely Indian women named Sefali, whom he moved overseas with him from India with permanent visa. Things were happy with the young couple getting used to the American way of living and soon they had their first child whom they had affectionately named "Tito". Sefali was happily attending to her child full time and she soon started moving around with her child when Bikram was away from home with his day job. During one such outdoor stroll, the child got stolen by a habitual offender and history sheeter and thereby devastated the couple's peaceful abode. A sense of guilt and deep remorse amidst the terrible tragedy led to eventual separation and the spouses drifted apart. Long term psychiatric counselling saved Sefali from turning lunatic and her broken lonely world started limping back with a day job at a child day care center. More than helping Sefali to survive, the job acted as a balm to soothe Sefali's unfulfilled motherly yearnings. But twist of fate had more in store for Sefali as she heard news that threatened to reopen her wounds fresh. Tune in to this audio story from "MyStoryGenie" Bengali Audiobooks series that succinctly captures the riveting dilemma between emotion and responsibility.Show more
