Syal is a British-born female, however she has her Indian starting place, which is going round her tale and movies. This film have Indian subculture at the back of it, in addition to a funny and laughable side. The film additionally has its personal tradition, surrounded by means of British society. The region of Sixties and Seventies Tollington, an apparently quiet metropolis inside the small village. They stand out from the quiet surrounding of West Midlands. Inside the Seventies present high unemployment, with monetary decreases, and commercial strikes. The location represented as traditional white people working magnificence and in only women’s able to get a job which makes differences to an exchange social relationship.
At the give up of the film indicates how Birmingham area has alternate and have become more financial surrounding place with new houses, motorways. The tale of “Anita and me” is essentially revolving round Meena whilst she lived in a small village known as Tollington. Meena is a young Indian woman born in terrific Britain.
She desires to be like all of the other Britons in her neighborhood, eating fish’s fingers, not chapattis, having colorful plant life in her lawn, and she want to go out together with her friends at any time , however instead Meena has to spent greater time with her family. In truth, Meena desires to be English lady, but Meena is Punjab, but she can’t speak any Punjab’s phrase, however her English and Midland accessory is stronger than other of the family members who lived in England for longer length. Her mother and father introduced Meena to England to improve daughters pleasant of life, however Meena rarely adapts to her surroundings. The town have become in trouble whilst the girl and her gang known as “wenches” thieve from their nearby sweet save.

In the end, Meena and Anita created a low-expected relationship and became like blood sisters, but Meena encountered front examinations for her high school, and at some point of that point she suffered an abuse by Anita’s mom and she toured ladies aside. This story happened in 1972. Political justice has not yet been invented. The names of “dark skins” in English villages were really racists. For example: One day Anita’s mum came back with a nice little black puppy.
“What is it called?” Anita’s little sister asked. “Niger”, she told and no one even blink on them eye. In the film, some British characters point to Meena and her family as percussions and darker ones. A member of the Meena family was beaten and killed because of his being Indian.
Meena after find out that Anita and her boyfriend Sam left Paki bashing (go to kill the Indians). They starts to sound bells, and Meena realized that was Sam who had killed her uncle. The film eventually ends in English music played in the background. The whole family starts dancing to the music, and then Meena’s dad starts singing in Punjabi along with music. This is shows that the two different cultures begin to mix and became friends. Dr Benjamin Obadiah Iqbal Zephaniah is a black man who born in Birmingham, England. He wrote ”Miss world” for his sister to give her support for being who she is.
“Miss World” is about a girl who is beautiful inside and does not want to be regarded as an object of the exhibition. The poem is written as rap and therefore invites younger people. This poet teaches that how you look is not important. The Miss World poet also uses words that are rhythmic if there is a reader. Reading the accent of Western India, “the best of self-defense” is not to cause it complaint. “Normally, this would not be a rhythm, so the reader would know immediately reading this or “de” (the)” or “day” (they) that this poem is written in dialect. Anita and Me story is similar as this poem Miss World, where there’s no poem theme judge people according to their appearance.
“You cannot judge your sister’s heart looking … just looking .
.. just looking at her breasts”. Sister is described as “beautiful” because of her personality and is not superficial, like people who judge Meena simply by watching her and seeing her differences. This poem and the movie shows English discrimination for people who are from Indian or other countries, having different colour or accent. However it is not only happening in England, but it happens in all around the world.
The movie and poem shows different culture and raise background.
