Abstract

This study is an attempt to analyzeBharati Mukherjee’s novels from a cross-culture perspective. Bharati Mukherjee is one of the major novelists of the Indian diaspora in the United States. She is an American writer of Indian origin who writes about the immigrant experiences of women from India in the United States and the problems faced by them in adjusting to the culture of the alien land. Mukherjee’s own biographical path covers India, Canada and the United States, and her novels focus mainly on dislocation, alienation and assimilation in the alien land. She has written eight novels, two collections of short stories such as Darkness and The Middleman and Other Stories, and two non-fiction books in collaboration with her husband Clarke Blaise. Bharati Mukherjee’s creative world best manifests immigrant experience in cross-cultural confrontation. Her novels deal with expatriates, exiles, and immigrants from Third World countries especially from India as in her earlier novels The Tiger’s Daughter, Wife, Jasmine, Leave It to Me, Desirable Daughters and The Tree Bride or immigrants from America as in The Holder of the World, The Tree Bride and Miss New India. Bharati Mukherjee has thus achieved great recognition within a short span of time as a diasporic writer through her fictional works on immigration, cross-cultural experiences, and assimilation with unique cross-cultural sensibility from her personal experiences as an expatriate and immigrant in the United States.
