Explain the relationship between Mrs. Das and Mr. Kapasi in Jhumpa Lahiri's "Interpreter of Maladies." Why does Mrs. Das feel comfortable with Mr. Kapasi?
Mrs. Das and Mr. Kapasi are, initially, simply a tourist and a driver. However, when she learns of his job as a translator in a doctor's office, she begins to warm to him. He interprets her friendliness as romantic interest. He is wrong. She feels comfortable telling him her secret because of his interpreter job: she wants him to suggest a remedy for her own emotional pain, not accepting that what she feels is guilt for her wrongdoing.
