Book Summary The Namesake covers five primary periods in the life of the Ganguli family. 1. From India to America. Chapters 1 and 2 narrate the story of the Gangulis’ early days in America. Ashoke decided to move to Boston and begin graduate school after barely surviving a catastrophic train accident in India. Gogol (Kal Penn) grows up as a typical American teenager and, inspired by a family trip to the Taj Mahal in India, studies to become an architect. He finds love with Maxine Ratliff (Jacinda Barrett), an all-American blonde girl from a wealthy family. He feels soon a part of her family, which goes hand in hand with his distancing from his own.

The Namesake follows the Ganguli family through its journey from Calcutta to Cambridge to the Boston suburbs. Ashima and Ashoke Ganguli arrive in America at the end of the s, shortly after their arranged marriage in Calcutta, in order for Ashoke to . Ashoke Ganguli. As fathers go, Ashoke is one of the good ones. We never see him losing his temper with Gogol, or chastising or criticizing him. He is portrayed as so mild-mannered and wise that it's a little hard to see why Gogol avoids his father for so many years.
