from their clashing priorities, she said.
Twenty-four years later, with the encour-
agement of her son, she filed for divorce.
Soon after, most of her friends began to
shun her and sympathized with her husband.
"They started a rumor that I'm having an
affair," Shah said.
Her son didn't receive much support from
his Indian friends.
"Ninety-five percent of my Indian friends
never mentioned it," he said. "These types of
situations make you realize who your friends

the opposite - nearly all offered their sup-

But when his mother went back to India to
visit, her reception was ironically warm and
Shyam Shah attributed the welcome to
"Americanization and modernity" in India.
"(Most Indian immigrants) came here in
the '70s, '80s and early '90s," Gita Shah
said. "We still have that old frame of mind
of India and the culture. People in India have
moved on and adopted changes."
After the workshop, the attendees divided
into groups and discussed divorce.
Many students in the groups said expec-
tations for women are getting higher. South
Asian women are expected to have a good
education and a successful career.
They also said some South Asian women
have a tendency to gossip about each other.
LSA freshman Tasha Vardya said the
stigma of divorce still exists in the current
"It's still going to be taboo," Vardya said.
"It's hard to completely get rid of that. We
were raised by our parents."
She said that because American society
views South Asians as giving a lot of impor-
tance to family values and respect for elders,
divorce is out of the ordinary.
But Shyam Shah said divorces will slowly
become more accepted.
His mother said she doesn't believe divorce
is always the best option.
"But if it happens, there's nothing wrong
with it," she said. "We should all be support-

Students from Crossing Borders set up a
makeshift Vietnamese marketplace in the
elementary school, including projections
of landscapes, colorful costumes and a
house adorned with traditional Vietnamese
Duong and other members handed out
branches of Hao Mai, a yellow flower that
symbolizes hope in Vietnamese culture.
In the middle of the gym, the students
and children danced and played Vietnam-
ese games. Around the perimeter, students
helped children make emperor hats, write
characters in Chinese and learn how to
pronounce their names in Vietnamese.
Dylan Williams, an adopted Vietnamese
child, said he enjoyed the celebration. He
said he loved the games and crafts.
Marie Lowry, from Redford, came with
her daughters Adele, who is from Vietnam-
ese, and Claire, whom she adopted from
China. She said the festivals have helped
her daughters develop a sense of their

"We like to get them excited about iden-

different from their peers," she said.
Through these festivals and online

no reports that he was offered the job.
Carr said he doesn't resent his coaches moving on to coach
"You always like to see people do things that are conducive
to their careers that they really want to do," the coach said.
"They're good men and they're outstanding coaches."
Carr said he considers the loss of coaches to the professional
