Loved this show and love this article! I thought the show did a very good job at showing the struggles of a first generation Asian family assimilating, which was my experience. I’m not Indian but I notice a lot of the same patterns with my Chinese family and the push to be a doctor or engineer and even to have an arranged marriage.
