“He was home. In an environment where he felt loved and comfortable in a way not possible in the United States. And yet, he no longer fit in. He loved living in America, but knew that there, too, he didn't quite fit. It was the classic immigrant dilemma.”
Anne Cherian, A Good Indian Wife

“He had put them [his family] first by coming home [to India] and the irony was that they had put him first by arranging this marriage. He had walked into it with his eyes open. But his eyes had been open too long in the West and by the time he adjusted his vision to India, it was too late.”
Anne Cherian, A Good Indian Wife

“They wouldn’t understand that bullshit was important in India, that if he said the word, he would be reminded that it was used as fuel to cook food and to fertilize the land.”
Anne Cherian, A Good Indian Wife
