Human beings from the ancient ages, in the course of making a world view and forming a cultural identity tend to normalize the inheritor’s views and tendencies. In the presence of the new entity of cognition the practicing heritage and chain of lifeline might be cut off or relinquished. Factually enough for a newborn identity, does the embodiment create any dysfunctions? From the cultural and genetic picturesque of that identity-making it is a matter of quest that, if the natural instinct of an individual is arbitrary enough, then why does it to be followed by an order of cultural realm and its proper orientation? By depicting the reality of a cultural identity along with a comparative psychic view of the central character Gogol from Jhumpa Lahiri's The Namesake(2003), the motive of the paper is to show the natural opulence of life from the Autobiographical memoir Akshay Mulberry (2009) of modern-day Bengali poet Manindra Gupta. The sythetical magnitude which is coined as the Plastic Rose phenomenon is the bone of contention of this paper.
