Homeless Bird was a magnificent story. It’s about a girl named Koly that is in an arranged marriage in India who struggles through her life. Her husband is named, Hari and he was ill when Koly married him. He passes away and now Koly is considered a widow. Her mother-in-law called Sass sent her away and left her in a temple full of widows like herself. Koly is now living with a rickshaw boy and his family. She got a job and got remarried to the rickshaw boy that she lived with. Now, she’s going have a new place to live and a new family. As a result now, she will no longer be a “Homeless bird”.
The book Homeless Bird shows Hindu cultural values in India.
In India it is true that widows in arranged marriages go to a temple in the capital city of Delhi. In the story, after Hari died, she gets left at Vrindavan,a city of widows.
Homeless Bird says that after an arranged marriage and when they have a feast, it’s the men that eat first, then it’s the women to show respect in the Hindu religion.
The book Homeless Bird says that in Hindu religion when people die and they spread their ashes in the Ganges river, they are considered lucky because the Hindus say that it flows to heaven.
In a arranged marriage, the girl and the boy can’t see each other before the marriage. In the book, Koly and Hari didn’t see each other before the marriage.
In an arranged marriage, it is that the girl that goes to live with the man’s family and follows the man and the family's commands. In the book, Koly lived with Hari’s family.
This project is about how the Hindu culture can be tied into Homeless Bird. My claim in this book is that the book shows how Homeless Bird shows a lot of Hindu cultural values. I learned that when a man dies from an arranged marriage, the girls have to wear a white sari to show that their are widows. I showed a lot of pictures and wrote a lot of evidence slides that will help my claim to be proved.
Google images, Kindle and my group helped me with this presentation.
