The Namesake

Changing perspectives, entering “someone else’s skin”... and understanding the content, feeling empathy...

You are Ashoke. Explain why you didn't take your grandfather's advice and continue to see the world as an armchair traveler, only through books. Talk about the train accident and how your period of convalescence made you want to pursue your graduate studies abroad and see the world during your youth, as Ghosh had urged you to do, before it would be "too late" (page 16).
