    Session 2 Review

    The adult Mindy Lahiri in an adult world is a dream for everyone, except for her actual self. First, she started acting in The Office and now, she's in real life, with a book on the stand, written by herself. The life of Mindy, her work and her personal life, is compelling and relatable. 

    Each chapter in her new book, titled The Future Is Female: My Vision For A New Generation, is divided into various topics such as bullying, woman's role in society, the girl child, dating and s*x, feminism, etc. 

    Mindy’s storytelling and writing style is insightful and it holds the attention of the readers. Let me start with the stories that are based on real life and real stories. There is a story of a girl who constantly was mocked and bullied by her classmates because of her way of dressing.

    Session 1 Review

    Ever had the guts to say no to your friend's who like to 'skank' while arguing over politics or god? Ever been called 'womanish' by your mom? Have you ever admitted to "listening to all kinds of music," and claimed it not as a cover up, but as a sort of 'being a good girl?" 

    From memories of Bee Gees and Michael Jackson, to even the strength of a 90's trash rap song by Blaque, last weekend's 'Never Have I Ever (2021)' session was all of these rolled into one. 

    The session, hosted by 28-year-old "Hollywood party girl" Carly Simon, consisted of an open mic round, followed by an improv round, and finally a Q&A round. Everyone taking part could bring one guest along, with an option to bring up to three people.

    Thoughts on the first two episodes

    I binge-watched this show with ease, which for some reason I never imagined I'd be able to achieve with this kind of a complex subject like race. The combination of Mindy Kaling‘s style of writing, Ansari’s raw narration, and funny accents is truly a treat to watch. 

    Watching Ansari play the protagonist, Dev Shah, was a delight. The show started off with an enlightening first episode of the show where the main characters, Dev, Annie, Darius and Manny are reminded of the fact that this was a sleepover party for the two boys, and for the girls the host. 

    While Anwar, the only Indian boy, comes to the party and offers the guys some fries, only one or two other kids accept his offer for the cookies, which are just plain biscuits and sugar.

    The Plot

    The story revolves around the life of a modern-day Indian American teenage girl whose life experiences as a young first generation American woman, inspired by the true-life experiences of writer Mindy Kaling. 

    Vijayalakshmi Rao (Kaling) lives her life as a teenage girl like any other. However, behind her social media updates, braces and periods, lies a complicated life. The Story Vijayalakshmi is happy with her routine life, dating her crush Ryan who is her neighbour's brother. 

    However, her mom's cousin Sonali (Tovino Thomas) shows up in the city to sell property that her family owns. She sets Vijayalakshmi up on a dinner date with the guy. On that night, she discovers a world she never knew existed. She meets four other people on her dinner date, who each have a story to tell.

    The Characters

    Hari (Nilanjana Sanyal): 16, South Asian American, American for most of her life, still retains her accent and cultural sensitivity. Anupam (Anu Sharma): 13, Indian American boy who has "made his peace" with his parents rejecting him because of his upbringing. 

    Tom (Charlie Schlatter): 7, Indian American, student of the Chinese Immersion Program. The Setting Hari and Anupam are 12, and their friendship grows from when they learn of each other's ethnic background. 

    Hari finds a group of Chinese and Indian friends, while Anupam finds a small group of Indian friends. Both Hari and Anupam have at least one parent disapproving of their own background, but because of Anupam's affable and open nature, she decides to have his family over for a meal.

    The Messages

    The script has the potential to make the most amazing inspiring movie one could ever imagine, and if it doesn't, it has the ability to be hilarious and light-hearted and feel-good too. The story is essentially about a 16-year-old girl who is the first-generation Indian American growing up in the United States. 

    She is the most quintessential Indian girl. Yes, she wears a bindi, eats Indian food, and is obsessed with the Bollywood film industry. She says she has spent a large part of her childhood living under the constant shadow of her grandmother who was a very strict traditional Hindu matriarch. The twist is that she has never met her grandmother.

    The Pros

    For young adult readers. Often, college is a confusing time, especially when a young adult is coming to terms with her first time living away from her parents. Never Have I Ever, however, deals with the huge societal and family-related intricacies that take place during that time. 

    It's relatable to any person who has experienced their first real heartbreak, first se*ual experience, and overall doubts of growing up. For Kaling fans. Lately, a lot of her fans have become frustrated and disappointed with her movie choices, to the point where they stopped seeing her movies in theaters. 

    However, Never Have I Ever, by Mindy Kaling's hand, is the film that fans of her have been waiting for.

    The Cons

    I recently saw the first one of these shows and didn't find it that entertaining. I feel as if you really need to be an intellectual and insightful person to fully enjoy this one. Yes, they're kinda 'out there' and crazy but not in a funny way. 

    No one is actually buying into any of these concepts and I didn't want to get caught up in what was going on. Sometimes you don't have to see the show to get something out of it; sometimes it's more important to just let it go and enjoy the process and let things speak for themselves. 

    Watching something like this, after viewing Mindy Kaling's first book, made me realize the importance of being a first-generation American in today's society. So many of us have only one reason to love our country.



    Mindy Kaling has been talking about youth for almost the past decade with her very popular show The Mindy Project. Hence it came as no surprise that the writer, producer, actress and comedian is back with her first book, a comic memoir titled, "Why Not Me", in 2017. 

    Her new book is just as hilarious, sad, insightful, emotional and political as her TV show. We also can’t forget that Mindy Kaling is only 39 years old and this is her first book. This year’s session, a few days ago. 

    Mindy Kaling took us on a journey through her childhood to her birthright and current life. Now we will always be talking about what a wonderful storyteller Mindy Kaling is and how much she enjoyed writing this book.
