Comparative Analysis of Diasporic Experience of Two Diasporic Writers : V.S.Naipaul & Bharati Mukherjee
AbstractDiasporic experiences generate the fractured and in-between life of migrants and diasporic communities. Migrants' experiences are a blend of anxieties, uncertainities, ambivalence, insecurities and limbo. These experiences are an indivinsible part of migrants' consciousness. Migrant's consciousness is a peculair kind of sensibility towards cultural mutations which accepts and appreciates multiplicity and ambivalence. The works of Naipaul and Mukherjee exhibit many ways of becoming which they acquire from different places of their protagonists. V.S.Naipaul delves deep to bring trauma of displacement and relocation of his male protagonists while Bharati Mukherjee writes from genedered perspective. Assimilation strategy is the leading principle for survival of protagonists. During the process of assimilation they reproduce themselves again and again keeping in view the demands made by 'assimilation'. Mukherjee unveils the fact that the process of deliverance from identities can be a painful and vicious process. The present research paper brings forth the comparative analysis of diasporic experience of both diasporic writers -V.S.Naipaul and Bharati Mukherjee.
