Overview

In this book the four novels which were taken to discuss are easily bound by the thread of the experiences of expatriates in a given society. The Indian expatriates, in their writings, have reflected upon what we may consider to-day as an expatriate and emotional integration. A reference of alienation does exist in the expatriate sensibility, yet they refuse to forget India. Expatriation basically differs from immigration in its concept of assimilation. As an expatriate how Bharati Mukherjee always carries her country with her, betraying notes of nostalgia or aversion as the case may be. Bharati Mukherjee has dealt with Indian life realistically and poignantly in her fiction, depicting her dreams and heart-aches with irony. Bharati Mukherjee as an expatriate, in trying to maintain her identity voluntarily or due to racism, follows the mosaic pattern as in Canada, the immigrant embraces assimilation and subscribes to the melting-pot theory of America. After fifteen years stay in Canada, she felt an expatriate and became an immigrant as she became one with the Americans. Since she declares herself an immigrant and writes about immigrants and how they are trying for self identity.
