Abstract

The paper examines the texts of a few writers like M.G. Vassanji, Anita Desai, Jhumpa Lahiri, Kiran Desai et al to study the dialectic of relationship between people belonging to different cultures. It is seen that the interface progresses along the trajectory of initial prejudices, culture shock, economic hardships, nostalgia and sense of loss, creation of imaginary homelands, adjustment with host culture to the extent possible, shaped finally by the politics which decides if the adjustment will be favourable to the native or to the migrant.
