There is nothing more shocking than seeing something and feeling as if it is your story. (A close second is seeing a paan wala in a chaddi). I felt like this happened to me while reading "The Namesake" and at times I could identify with Hugh Grant's character in "About A Boy"....and surely everyone has felt as disconnected from the rest of the world as Zach Braff is in "Garden State."

But this is me sometimes.

Loved The Namesake. She's such an amazing writer and I think she really captured the experience of straddling two cultures and reconciling your American self and your Asian (or any other foreign self, actually) self.

Its 1:34am after a 12-15 hour work day. If you look hard, there is a cure for the burnout.... =)
