Summary of the Book

Ashoke Ganguli and Ashima Ganguli, a couple away from their home in Bengal, are about to have their first child in Massachusetts. While Ashoke Ganguli is studying at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the young wife is lost in the alien land with not many around to help her and no friends she could talk to and hang out with. Now, their young boy has to be named by an elder person in the family, as a part of the tradition followed in Bengali families. This honour has been given to Ashima’s grandmother. Due to circumstances, the couple find out that they cannot leave the hospital without naming the child. Ashoke thus chooses the name of his favourite Russian author, Gogol, for time being. But when Ashima’s grandmother passes away before picking a name for her great grandson, the boy remains Gogol. Although he likes his name initially, he starts to dislike it by the time he begins going to high school. And he formally changes his name to Nikhil before leaving for higher studies, and becomes Nikhil Gogol Ganguli. Ashima is extremely unhappy with her son when he starts becoming more of an American, and Ashoke remains quiet about all this until he finds the right time to tell Gogol why he chose that name. The reason behind a name is what constitutes the soul of the story, which changes the young man forever. This timeless story will certainly leave in thoughts that overwhelm you each time you recall it.
