Towards the end of the movie, she states that she had made a family in the United States, and she shows how much she has changed since when she first arrived in America. Ashima changes during her time in the United States because she is in a new environment with an extremely different culture, and her children grew up completely surrounded by this new culture. As said in class, transformation is inevitable. Adapting to change is how humans and animals survive. No matter how much a person wants to stick to “how things are”, they will change in some way whether they like it or not.
