Abstract

Chitra Banerjee presents the voyage of women who, right from their birth to matrimony, progress ahead to cross numerous borders. Chitra Banerjee has precisely examined the shortcomings in the Indian society that are troublesome for women. She thus, moves a step ahead of other contemporaries in the literature of Indian diaspora. She distinguishes herself from others by revealing how Indian women continue to be stereotyped, marginalized and relegated to a colonial subjective position by their own oppressive tradition. Yet the women equip themselves to desist and defile the principles and beliefs of their own culture. Each person’s journey is unique, and it changes that person in an exceptional manner.Divakaruni’s woman protagonists aspire for power and autonomy to tussle against the domination of patriarchal ideology and humanity. Chitra Banerjee through her character Anu propounds how exile is, as prevailing as Diaspora which gives migrants an opportunity to excel in their career. This paper investigates the depiction of diasporic identity in Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s Oleander Girl through the lens of contemporary critical approaches to diaspora.
