Frances Bowen, a respected academic in innovation and sustainability, once said that “to become a thoroughly good man, is the best prescription for keeping a sound mind in a sound body.” Upon reflection, I am convinced that I’ll reap handsome benefits from demonstrating goodness to both my parents ever since I was a small child. This short paper aims to illuminate the reasons why I am a good son to my parents. Firstly, at a personal level, I believe I am a good son to both my parents as I have never questioned their authority in an irresponsible manner. Although it is true that some parental control can be perceived as demeaning and dictatorial, especially in adolescence, I have always found a way to address my parents’ concerns in a mature and firm manner. When I finished high school, for example, I remember my father standing his ground that I should pursue a course that I never had an interest in. Although our arguments at home were potentially explosive, I managed to bring on board one of his best friends to make him understand that I needed to be given a chance to choose my own trajectory. Eventually, the problem was settled, and the respect I had earned from my parents still remained intact for not questioning their authority in an irresponsible manner. Secondly, I have never neglected to abide by the advice received from my parents. Personally, I believe that internalizing parental guidance is fundamental to my personal and professional growth because it is difficult for parents to mislead me as some of my friends would do. I remember one time when my parents advised me to develop a profoundly religious orientation so as to ground my life on sound values and virtues. While most of my friends were demonstrating open revolt to the advice provided by their parents by attending dance parties instead of religious gatherings, I decided to follow my parents’ advice by going to church and practice the teachings as received from our pastoral staff. The result of this undertaking is that my parents, as well as siblings, can now depend on me for moral and spiritual support. The third reason why I believe I am a good son to both my parents is grounded on the fact that I have been, and will always be, a shining star in academics and extra-curricular activities. I can still remember how happy my mother was when she came to collect my academic reports from middle-grade level through senior high school. She always went with a radiant face knowing too well that she would be called upon to address other parents on motivating students to perform better academically. Similarly, my father always accompanied me in major sports competitions, knowing that I would shine in several field and track events. To date, my parents are very fond of the photographs taken during these ceremonies, and I can tell that these priceless photographs still act as a fundamental source of happiness. The fourth reason is that I have always been there for my parents in times of need or discomfort. When my mother was diagnosed with a severe but treatable health condition a few years ago, I remember I canceled a holiday I was going with close friends just to be by her side. Upon reflection, I realized that this particular gesture provided my mother with a great deal of moral support. Owing to this and the medical attention provided by doctors, she responded well to treatment and was out of hospital earlier than expected. To date, my parents thank me for standing by them in that trying period. Although I cannot fully exhaust the reasons why I perceive myself as a good son to my parents, I know that goodness is an asset that has assisted me in laying a solid foundation for success in my future personal, family, and professional endeavors.

Searching for identity is big theme in Postcolonial studies. Identity or the sense of belonging plays a major role in everyone’s lives. Identity tells us who we really are and where we have come from. Identity can be either positive or negative. It gives us the sense of pride in being who we are. If we do not identify ourselves with our surroundings or the people we come in contact with, we are lost. We feel as if we do not belong there and hence we feel as if we have lost our identity. Actually, the search for identity is an ongoing g process and there is no ending for it. Many would do anything to find their identity and to search for the place where they belong. “Throughout the late twentieth century and into twenty-first, the search for self-identification grew in importance as a response to an increase focus on individualism. The search for identity is a problematic discourse in a world where dislocation imposes different cultures on individuals who leave their country of origin to exist in another. In the study of post-colonialism the search for identity is pertinent, because migration is a common experience for the postcolonial body. As migration occurs, “It is here that the special post-colonial crisis of identity comes into being; the concern with the development or recovery of an effective identifying relationship between self and place” In both Funny Boy and Running in the Family, the search for identity is the main theme. These novels bring forth the challenges that the main characters face in the search for identity. The setting of these two novels is in Sri Lanka. However, Funny Boy’s Arjie faced negative challenges thrown at him whereas Running in the Family’s narrator’s (Ondaatje) journey of self-discovery is more towards the positive side. In this paper, I will the journey of self identification by the protagonists of the both novels that I mentioned above. In Funny Boy, we are exposed to the history of Sri Lanka, Arjie’s homeland. A country like Sri Lanka that has just gained independence from the colonizers strives to build and recapture its own identity which was stolen by the colonizing powers. However, to form a unitary identity is not easy because Sri Lanka is made up of different ethnicities and religious beliefs. The history of racial conflict between the Tamils and the Sinhalese in Sri Lanka plays an important role in Arjie’s life. The rivalry between Sinhalese (Buddhist) and Tamil (Hindu) inhabitants of Sri Lanka is caused by the differences in religion and custom. Salgado argues that “the connection between language and ethnicity which substantiate the discrete ethnic markers of “Sinhalese” and “Tamil”, was very much the product of British orientalism, and was embraced by the Sinhalese who stood to gain from it” (12-13). The Tamil minority from India migrated to Sri Lanka between the 3rd century BC and 13th century AD whereas the Indo-Aryan in who migrated in the 5th century BC created the Sinhalese population in Sri Lanka. Since, the Sinhalese are more in population compared to the Tamils; they hold much of the political power. For so long, Sri Lanka has been under the Western powers like Portuguese and British before it gained independence in 1948, with both Sinhalese and Tamils uniting their forces. Somehow, this unity did not last long because the Sinhalese immediately assumed power and began to marginalize the Tamils. They began to treat the Tamils so badly till the Tamils had to struggle to make their voice heard. The conflict reached its peak in 1956 when the Prime Minister Solomon Bandaranaike declared Sinhala as the national language and when Buddhism was declared as the official religion; the Tamils grew angry. Arjie’s father says in Funny Boy, when asked about the riots, “Sinhalese wanted to make Sinhala the only national language, and the Tamils did not like this. So there was a riot and many Tamils were killed” (61). The Tamils after much pain and suffering from denial of rights begin to fight to establish their own nation and this is evident in Funny Boy. “There was a group in Jaffna called the Tamil Tigers. They wanted a separate country and the Sinhalese were very angry about this. Ammachi often talked about the Tigers. She was on their side and declared that if they did get a separate state, which they would call “Eelam”, she would be the first to go and live in it. Father told her she was mad. This made Ammachi even more angry and they had many disputes about the Tigers”. (61) These political and racist power struggles heavily influence many chapters in this novel and especially when it reaches the climax in the last chapter, “Riot Journal: An Epilogue”. In “Pigs Can’t Fly”, Arjie clashes with his cousin sister Tanuja and disagrees with the common social norm which forbids him from playing feminine games with girls. In “Radha Aunty”, Radha’s and Anil’s love situation is almost similar to Romeo and Juliet love story. Radha is Tamil and Anil is a Sinhalese and they are forbidden to get married because they belong to different religion. “In See No Evil, Hear No Evil”, Daryl and Nalini endeavor to expose the corruption of the government, a fruitless effort in a corrupt and laden society. “In Small Choices”, Arjie’s father and Jegan had to battle against the racial stereotyping and violence, while in “The Best School of All”, Arjie and Shehan both defy the authority of the principal named Black Tie. At last, in the “Epilogue” the conflict between the Sinhalese and Tamils got worst which is the beginning of the civil war. Furthermore, binary oppositions the “self” and the “other” exists in every chapter of this novel in a form of stereotyping every person in their own category. Ania Loomba says that, “stereotyping involves a reduction of images and ideas to a simple manageable form; rather than simple ignorance or lack of ‘real’ knowledge, it is a method of processing information. The function of stereotypes is to perpetuate an artificial sense of difference between ‘self’ and ‘other’ (55). In Funny Boy, Arjie’s grandmother Ammachi cannot accept Anil because she cannot see him beyond the stereotype. She cannot see Anil for more than just a Sinhalese. “What did I tell you? She was getting a lit from a Sinhalese. Only a Sinhalese would be impertinent enough to offer an unmarried girl a lift” (58). Society expects its people to choose sides and in return they will be protected accordingly. Conformity makes someone feel safe and it ensures one’s survival. In a power struggle, when one party has the upper hand claim on the country and affirm other minorities will be marginalized. In the Empire Writes Back, Bill Ashcoft et al claims that “in post-colonial societies, the participants are frozen into a hierarchical relationship in which the oppressed is locked into a position by the assumed moral superiority which is reinforced when necessary by the of physical force” (172). In “Small Choices” Arjie’s father explained the things Tamils might get in trouble with in which the Sinhalese will face no problem. “When my father had finished relating the incident, Amma said, “You should have taken Jegan’s side. After all, he is more important than the peon.” “As Tamils we must tread carefully,” my father replied. “Jegan has to learn that. Even I have to circumspect when I’m talking to the staff. If I was Sinhalese, like Sena, I could say and do whatever I liked.” Amma sighed. “It’s so ridiculous,” she said. “What to do? One has to be realistic.” (190). When the minorities do not have equal rights as the majority, this will lead to dislocation and alienation in their own country. This will result in vengeance and vendetta: “You know,” Sonali said, “Sometimes I wish I was a Sinhalese or a foreigner.” “I don’t,” Diggy said. He glared at us again. “I’m proud to be Tamil. If those damn buggers come here, I’ll…” (196) Diggy’s reaction is understandable and it’s called retaliation. His reaction is much similar to the reaction of the Tamil Tigers. Tamil Tigers are consists mostly of young people who are unable to put up with Sinhalese demands and discriminations. Society draws a line between ‘us’ and ‘them’ so that people must confirm to either side, no matter how ridiculous it may seem. This applies to gender stereotyping as well. When asked why Arjie cannot play with his cousin sisters, his mother replies, “It doesn’t matter…Life is full of stupid things and sometimes we just have to do them” (20). So what will become for those who refuse not to belong to just one category? What if they exist in a third space; in between? In Arjie’s case, he belongs to the Tamil minority as well as in gay community. Homosexuality is not tolerated in Sri Lanka and therefore Arjie is marginalized twice than an average Sri Lankan. Hence, it will be harder for Arjie to feel accepted and to have a sense of belonging. However, there many instance in Funny Boy where the characters try to defy the norm of life and social rules to live their life their own lives. This is evident in Arjie’s monologue below. How was it that some people got to decide what was correct or not, just or unjust? It had to do with who was in charge; everything had to do with who held power and who didn’t. if you were powerful like Black Tie or my father you got to decide what was right or wrong. If you were like Shehan or me you had no choice but to follow what they said. But did we always have to obey? Was it not possible for people like Shehan and me to be powerful too?” (274) Most of the time, the characters who decide not to follow the social rules or everyday norms are secluded and alienated by their family and country and people. For an example, Aunt Doris, the director of the stage play Arjie was involved in chose to go against her Burgher family’s wishes and married a Tamil man. This of course ended her relationship with her family. Even Arjie, after thwarting his principal and realize who he is and who he wanted to be with, thought to himself, “As I gazed at Amma, I felt a sudden sadness. What had happened between Shehan and me over the last few days had changed my relationship with her forever. I was no longer a part of my family in the same way. I now inhabited a world they didn’t understand and into which they couldn’t follow me”. (285) Here Arjie is talking about his sexual awakening but his feelings also apply to those who made choices that alienate them from the people and places they belong to. However, to Homi Bhabha the third space gives people like Arjie a chance to create a new identity. This third space allows them to transcend their position and go against those suppress and oppress them. It gives them power and freedom to transcend boundaries society rules. They get the best of both worlds. It gives them self empowerment to move on in life and it’s a place where the can voice out their opinions. Most of all the third space gives them sense of belonging and identity. “The third space is a mode of articulation, a way of describing a productive and not merely reflective, space that engenders new possibility. It is an ‘interruptive, interrogative,and enunciative’ space of new forms of cultural meaning and productive blurring the limitation of existing boundaries and calling into question established categorizations of culture and identity” (Bhabha, 1994) Before Arjie is even aware of his “tendencies”, his family would have makes sure that any un-stereotypical gender fondness would have been eradicated by his family. His father who was afraid that Arjie might turn out “funny” forbids him to play “bride-bride” with his cousin sisters. Well, on the other hand when Arjie plays with boys he was called a “girlie boy”. This separates him from the possibility of being a girl or a boy. Gender stereotypes are enforced by families and society to demarcate the separate worlds of boys and girls. This leaves Arjie “caught between the boys’ and the girls’ worlds, not belonging or wanted either” (39). His exclusion from both parties suggests us that he inhabits some third space between these two. This third space is addressed as “funny” and it has a shameful connotation. According to Gopinath, “challenging gendered spaces in this novel which is portrayed by the main character. This is because he allows the “inner” space to be something more than a site of gender agreement. He allows gender and fantasy play. And by doing this he “reveal[s] how non heteronormative embodiments, desires, and pleasures surface within even the most heteronormative of spaces” (170-171). Throughout the whole book, we follow Arjie’s journey growing up and attempting to search for his identity. Arjie’s search for identity is similar to Sri Lanka’s own research for identity amidst the warring ethnics. If the focus is just among the Tamils and Sinhalese, what about the homosexuals, Burghers and Muslims? Aren’t they part of Sri Lanka as well? Even though all of them are different in many ways, they yearn for a place to call home where they can be safe and live without persecution. Funny Boy also puts the story of the everyday people of Sri Lanka in the spotlight. It doesn’t focus on one party but it focuses more on the struggle these people went through to live in a Sri Lanka they all own. “It is not about finding a balance between your identities, or trying to define within a particular one,” Selvadurai explained. Rather, he said “it is about being open-minded” and “being accepting of how others define you” (…/HYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”shyamHYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”_HYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”selvaduraiHYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”_HYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”funnyHYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”_HYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”boyHYPERLINK “…/shyam_selvadurai_funny_boy_on_campus”_on_campus). In Running in the Family, Michael Ondaatje narrates the quest to search about his father by “re-conceptualizing” the past and patching up the fragments of his family history. Ondaatje searches for his identity by retracing back his family’s past, especially his father in Sri Lanka. “During certain hours, at a certain years in our lives, we see ourselves as remnants from the earlier generations that were destroyed. So our job becomes peace with enemy camps, eliminate the chaos at the end of Jacobean tragedies, and with ‘the mercy of distance’ write histories”(179). The framework that Ondaatje uses is a fictionalized memoir. This allows Ondaatje to create his own form of reality and his own truths. This enables him to challenge boundaries between fiction and reality. Besides that, Ondaatje explores the autobiographical self and in his case, the quest for Mervin Ondaatje is an important “detour” in his search for his own identity. He uses the technique of searching about the other (his father) so that he can find his own identity. As Marlene Kadar points out, writing about life is “the site of the other, and this other is ‘autobiographical’ in one sense, and not at all in another” (153).When Ondaatje is searching deeply about his family’s and father’s roots he begins to shape his own roots. At the end of the book it is revealed that Ondaatje is the mirror image of his father. “One could certainly claim that the end of the narrative is just the beginning of the discovery of the other (i.e. the father) through the self (i.e. the narrator)” (Speaking One’s Truth: Reading, 3). In Running in the Family, Ondaatje uses the infusion of family tragedies, their life dramas, warmth and love to connect the dots and construct his identity. He includes both the public and private when he researches about his family past. By doing so, he is able to see the connections between his family and his colonial inheritance. As Patricia Hampl remarks, “the truth memoir has to offer is not neatly opposite from fiction’s truth. Its methods and habits are different, and it is perhaps a more perverse genre than novel: It seems to be about an individual self, but it is revealed as a minion of memory which belongs not only to the personal world but to public realm” (205). Sri Lanka is a country consisting of a complex social network because it is a multinational country which has many national and cultural identities. Ondaatje acknowledges Sri Lanka’s identity as hybrid and “creolized” nature. This almost similar to Ondaatje’s family background: “Every one was vaguely related and had a Sinhalese, Tamil, Dutch, British and Burgher blood in them going in back many generations. There was a large social gap between this circle and the Europeans and English who were never part of Ceylonese community. The English were seen as transients, snobs, and racists and were quite separate from those who had intermarried and who lived permanently. My father always claimed to be a Ceylon Tamil, though that was probably more valid about three centuries earlier” (41). However, there is a tension between Ondaatje’s endeavour to reunite him with his family and to keep a distance from his family so that he is able to break through his family’s history from different points of view. It is as if when Ondaatje runs in with his family, he is also running away from his family. The “running” aids the author in a more complex search for his identity because it allows him to discover his identity in different forms. Here, Ondaatje is creating history while collecting data, fragments of both Sri Lanka’s and family’s histories. As to fill in the gaps in his identity, he uses myth to provide explanations and to be as closer to the “truth” of that time and closer to the truth of his family. By researching his country of birth, he sees it as “the other” that he is constantly searching for. He is both the insider and the outsider who speaks for both the marginal and the central: “I am the foreigner. I am the prodigal who hates the foreigner” (65). Here Ondaatje represents the immigrants, immigration and culture. “The framework of fictionalized memoir allows both writers to speak their souls’ truth” (cf.Hampl, 203). The search of identity is a process where there is a need to rely on the national identity and family identities. It’s like you cannot runaway from where you belong because they somehow make you who you are. Arjie and his family had to leave Sri Lanka because Sri Lanka was no longer safe to be their home and it was no longer where they belong whereas, Ondaatje has to come back to Sri Lanka because that is where he can find his identity through his family’s history. Even though, Arjie and his family had to run to Canada to survive, they are still Sri Lankans and are part of that country. Arjie’s father sent Arjie to a different school so that Arjie won’t turn out “funny”, Arjie found Shehan who strengthen his sexuality. When it comes to Ondaatje, even though he is settled in Toronto, Canada, he has to go back to his birth place to find his identity. He even has dreams of going back to Sri Lanka. At last, one had to admit that the main part of their identity depends on where you are born and where you came from whether you are accepting it or not. This is evident in Shyam Selvadurai’s Funny Boy and Michael Ondaatje’s Running in the Family. Work Cited Ashcroft, B., Griffiths, G. and Tiffin, H. The Empire Writes Back. New York: Routeledge, 1994.

High Rise Essay

Week 4 Discussion Board Question No unread replies. No replies. Not everyone has a high rise in their jurisdiction. However, if you find yourself on a mutual-aid assignment or working for a different department somewhere down the road, knowing how to attack this type of fire will be useful. The high-rise fire is a completely different animal than the typical residential fires we routinely run. Each high rise has its own challenges and uniqueness that a jurisdiction needs to plan, train and adapt for. Despite their uniqueness, there are some basics that apply to most circumstances. A high rise is basically any building with portions that extend higher than the tallest ladder. Some characteristics may be dependent upon code definitions and requirements as well that could limit your department’s effectiveness. For example, a department may not have an aerial but has four-story buildings in its jurisdiction. In some cases, that four-story building may not be required to have a standpipe system, making your job even more difficult. It is imperative that you are well armed before you have to respond to and operate at a high-rise fire. As part of that preparation, there is some information that you must obtain that will be critical for your success. You have to know the building. You have to know how large it is and its unique features and quirks. Here are nine factors that need to be addressed when planning and training for high-rise fires. 1. Know how many stories the building has and how that relates to labeled floors in the elevator. For example, we have a building that is 17 stories but there is no floor 13 listed. It was common to skip the “unlucky” number when assigning floors. To identify the fire floor, count windows on the exterior. 2. Have a working knowledge of the elevator system. Do you know where the elevator control keys are or do you carry them on your apparatus? It is critical that we control the elevators early in the incident. If the elevators are already recalled when you arrive, do you know what that means? Know how and why they do what they do. 3. Be able to get to the alarm panel and identify alarm divisions. Some high-rise buildings will allow smoke to spread from floor to floor. This will activate several alarms making identifying the fire floor more difficult. Understanding the alarm system panel will make this a little easier. 4. If you mark the exterior with floor indicators, know where they are located and how they were intended to be used. This comes into play with the “missing” 13th floor. If they are spaced every five floors, you must take into account the 13th floor. 5. Know the location of the stairs and if are they set up the same or differently. In the 17-story building mentioned before, there are two stairwells: one is pressurized and the other is not. Our plan has the occupants exiting the pressurized well while we ascend and operate out of the non-pressurized well. Not knowing the right stairwell to use will obviously create major issues. 6. Understand floor plans and layouts. If there is a fire on the 7th floor, what are the chances that the floor plans on the 5th and 6th are similar or the same? In a residential building, the chances are very high that the layout is similar. So, if there’s an alarm for unit 707 on the 7th floor, look at floor five to find unit 507 and odds are they are in the same location on their respective floors. Preplanning will confirm this or dictate that other methods for orientation are need. 7. Know where the standpipe connections are and how they operate. Know how much hose it takes to get to the most remote unit and room from the standpipe. Also, know if they are they in the stairwell or in the hall. 8. Know what type of ventilation system is in place and how it works. Does it shut off with the activation of the alarm or must it be manually disabled? Does it have a smoke removal system, and if so, how does it work? 9. Know if the building has sprinklers. Also, know where to find the Fire Department Connection and the closest hydrant. This is a pretty basic list; we will cover some of these again as we get into the actual operations. There are other bits of information that others may be able to add that I have left out or forgotten, but these all lead to operational methods and techniques while fighting a high-rise fire. Always take the information and adapt it as best you can. If your department has specific operational guidelines, then follow those. Use this as a supplement. Describe the characteristics of high-rise buildings and their impact on fire fighting tactics. You must answer the discussion question with a minimum of 200 words and reply to at least 2 of your classmates with substantial responses relating to the discussion question in no less than 50 words. This will create the virtual classroom to enhance learning. Be sure to see the rubric to maximize your grading. The rubric can be found by clicking the 3 dots at the top of the discussion question heading.
