  • Description
    When her grandmother learned of Ashima's pregnancy, she was particularly thrilled at the prospect of naming the family's first sahib. And so Ashima and Ashoke have agreed to put off the decision of what to name the baby until a letter comes…'

    For now, the label on his hospital cot reads simply BABY BOY GANGULI. But as time passes and still no letter arrives from , American bureaucracy takes over and demands that 'baby boy Ganguli' be given a name. In a panic, his father decides to nickname him 'Gogol' – after his favourite writer.

    Brought up as an Indian in suburban , Gogol Ganguli soon finds himself itching to cast off his awkward name, just as he longs to leave behind the inherited values of his Bengali parents. And so he sets off on his own path through life, a path strewn with conflicting loyalties, love and loss…

    Loved it

    A very well written book. She sets an example for all writers to follow. An amazing flow of story, superb description of characters and in-depth emotions so well expressed. Jhumpa makes all Indians proud. Loved the book.

    Can't express it in words

    When I completed reading this novel, I was literally in thoughts. It made me think about the importance of a nickname in one's life. Last 20 pages were fantastically represented by the author. Ashima's life and her contribution to the family is impeccably depicted.
    It is one of the best writings that I have came across.

    Deep Impact on my mind

    It is a beautifully written story which moved my heart, the depiction of events from viewed from different perspectives helped me to understand how every character felt.it changed my perspective to life. Reading "The Namesake" makes you want to appreciate the little things in life which we take for granted.
