Title

Feeling of Diaspora in Jhumpa Lahiri’s the Interpreter of Maladies

Abstract

Jhumpa Lahiri came to literary scene in 1999 with the publication of Interpreter of Maladies. This short-story collection has earned popularity with the readers a lot. It has won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2000. As it was the first effort by Lahiri, it gained a lot of name to her in literary world. There are nine interesting stories in the collection which create different impacts on the readers. These stories talk about the Indians living in America who are navigating between the tradition they have inherited from their native land and the kind of life they are encountering in US. The aim of this research endeavor is to focus on the stories which deal with the theme of migration and its impact. First story “the Temporary Matter” talks about the broken married life of a second- generation migrants. They resist everything from Indian culture but still they can’t stop themselves in having relationship with their native culture through their kitchen. The loss of their unborn kid set them apart. They start going away from each other but the temporary thing like power cut brings them together. Shukmar even after being in his 30s works as a student and his wife Shobha who is practical, works as proof-reader. Till the last of the story, we don’t know the attitude of the writer for the cultures but the relationship of husband and wife in spite of their lack of vulnerability in each-others presence come back to normalcy. They share things with each other but when Shukumar realizes the purpose of Shobha to start the game of telling each other things which they didn’t tell earlier is to talk about her staying away in home from Shukumar, then he feels shocked. He feels that now it is all futile to keep away the secrets from each other out of love. He tells her that though they have promised each other not to reveal the gender of their kid before its birth, but now when love is not there between them, then it is waste to keep things a surprise. He tells her that kid was a boy who was like Shobha. Their shared grief brings them closer to each other.
