The Golden Jubilee A family and their significant others gather one summer weekend in a California home to mark the golden jubilee wedding anniversary of a Bengali-American couple, Dev and Ruma. Intended to be a celebration through conversation and music, it becomes as much a time of bonds lost and recovered, of confessions and self-discovery, of acceptances and rejections, and of new decisions. The narrative is unveiled in a succession of first person tales told separately by Deb, Ruma, their daughters Anji and Diya, and their visitor from India, Debs much loved widowed sister Nanda. The story talks about how Indians in America, become completely Americanised as they tend to forget their Indian roots, especially the new generation. Other themes include family politics, love and arranged marriages, loneliness, death. A major issue raised in the novel is the impact of homosexuality, especially how it is viewed by different people.
