Moushumi Mazoomdar is a woman whose parents are friends of the Gangulis. She knew Gogol when she was 13, was invited to his party but she thoroughly ignored him and the rest of the kids. When she is older, she is a graduate student at NYU and Gogol asks her to meet him for a drink at the suggestion of his mother. Gogol and Moushumi get married but she cheats on him and they separate close to the ending of the novel.
