Dr. Shweta Singh , Khushhali


Diaspora can be described as a group of people who either have come from a specific country or their forefathers have come from that specific country. But presently they live in some place other than their native-hood. The diasporic writings majorly depict alienation, dislocation, nostalgia, displacement, ethnicity and cultural identity. This paper lays emphasis on the deep evaluation of diasporic experiences along with self-identity and the consciousness of a woman in context to Bharati Mukherjee’s famous novel ‘Jasmine’.
