Poverty; Poverty is probably many immigrants and refugees have faced once they first stepped foot into a new country to start a new journey. This situation would relate to my father. My father being the youngest of his family left war-torn Sri Lanka with his eldest brother to find a way to survive and make money. Enough to sponsor the rest of his six siblings, and mother. My father, and his brother had to work multiple jobs in order to sustain a salary that was enough for their living as well provide income to send back home, because there family didn’t have a father to support them. Most immigrated communities and families, tend to face poverty because they do not have a source of income, nor a stable lifestyle. Every immigrant leaves their home country looking for a brighter future. Each family starts of in poverty until they begin working in order to make enough for themselves and their family. This time in every person’s journey / life time is truly a struggle in my opinion. 
Alienation: Alienation is the opposite of conformity, it is when one doesn’t feel comfortable, nor do they feel they belong and fit in. I felt this way when I graduated from elementary school with a small group of people. Leaving elementary school felt like a huge transition, being surrounded by a lot more people, and trying to make new friends was difficult because I would consider myself anti-social, I’m sure I’m not the only person that felt this way though. I think many kids feel alienated when introduced to a group of new people. 
Conformity: is a type of social influence involving a change in belief or behavior in order to fit in with a group. The term conformity is often used to indicate an agreement to the majority position, brought about either by a desire to ‘fit in’ or be liked or because of a desire to be correct, or simply to conform to a social role. This is a great example of how young females feel due to media influence.

Ganesha,  It is the symbolic representation of a gnani, the elepahant head kept on a human body explains how a man is supposed to function. Elephant head has unique features compared to other animals, wide ears; conveys that one should listen and understand what ever is heard of. Big head; one should acquire enough knowledge or wisdom that he is capable of. Trunk; discriminating ability of when and what to use i.e the elephant uses diff force to lift a needle or to uproot a tree. Tusk; if two tusks are present…it conveys that there is a boundry within which a man can operate b/w the parameters good and bad therefore one tusk is broken/removed to represent universal qualities i.e there is nothing like good and bad.  Big belly; represents that one should absorb all the experiences that he has undergone. Mouse; the amount of desires the man pocesses, because mouse is supposed to be the greediest animal on earth. It is looking at the lords face asking if he permits him, he is ready to grab the food kept for the lord . Man having born on earth, should have a worldly affair therefore one leg of god is kept on ground and the other leg folded conveying that man should have blissful posture.
