I liked one of the peer responses to the cultural strife that is taking place within the novel with the various characters especially Chanu and Nazneen. There exist this consist subtle but forceful drive or conflict to be at peace with oneself in their current culture and community and this need to conform to the present set of norms. It exhibits the social clashes among different cultures that are merged together by socioeconomic circumstances and also cultural disconnect within those communities sharing the same heritage and race but holding differing values and points of view.
