ABSTRACT:
Bharati Mukherjee has been described as “the foremost chronicler of the multicultural New America” (Nicholson, 1990). Cross cultural confrontations constitute the core theme of her works. As a fiction writer her continuing concern has been to deal with the life of South Asian expatriates/immigrants in USA and Canada and her writings reflect the process of acculturation and assimilation in the journey from expatriation and immigration. Her narratives address issues of identity as they intersect with culture, gender and race. The present paper focuses exclusively on her third novel Jasmine, which chronicles the movement of an Indian woman from India to the United States and what strategies of survival she adopts as she relocates herself in a new and alien world.
KEYWORDS:
Diaspora, assimilation, identity crisis, expatriate, acculturation.
