How do you interpret the end of the story?

This week your brief writing assignment will address one of this week’s discussion questions (including your own if you chose to go your own way). The purpose of this is to develop a personal response that builds on the class discussion. Read everyone’s comments carefully and then craft your own. One page double spaced will suffice. 1) Food figures prominently in this story; Lahiri meticulously describes each of the meals they eat (and it makes me hungry every time!). What do you make of all this food? What is its significance and how does it contribute to the story’s larger meaning and effect? 2) How do you interpret the end of the story? Upon learning about Pirzada’s family, why does Lilia throw away the remaining candy, and why does she “not feel like celebrating”? What is the significance of the candy?
