Emergence of Materialism in Rohinton Mistry’s Short Story Ghost of Firozsha Baag

Dr. C. SHAHIN BANU

Abstract

Rohinton Mistry is a Parsi, diaspora writer who depicts the complexities of colonialism in India. Mistry incorporates elements of mysticism and surrealism in his stories. He highlights the psychological issues of his characters through their experiences in life. His works show declining moral and ethical values, traditions of Zoroastrianism and emphasize their predilection towards emergent materialism. Parsi people concern their identity and ethnicity in multicultural India. Mistry presents the practical social life in his stories and has a special regard for Parsi culture and tradition. The aim of this paper is to analyse the emergence of materialism in Mistry’s short story Ghost of Firozsha Baag
