Neither Here Not There: An Assessment Of Jhumpa Lahiri’s Unaccustomed Earth as Migration literature

Pankaj Sharma

Abstract


Diapora, migration Literature and literature of exile have been the centre of discussion for last quarter of century. Jhumpha Lahiri is one of the lumanaries in the field. The paper asesses her book Unaccustomed Earth as a book of short stories deeply enshrining  the spirit of migration and disporic literature. The Hindu way of life and the American social systems are two different sets of culture and individuals caught in the whirlwind of having one system and living in another feel torn between the two, is clearly visible in the stories of this book especially in the title story.
