Bharathi Mukherjee is a Third World Feminist writer whose preoccupation is to deal with the  problems and issues related with the South Asian Women particularly India.  Like her contemporary feminist writers she upholds the cause of women, but she differs from them because her basic concern is to delineate the problems of cross cultural conflicts faced by Indian women immigrants. This is evident by Tara Banerjee in ‘The Tiger’s Daughter’, Dimple in ‘Wife’ and Jyothi in ‘Jasmine’. Bharathi Mukherjee’s heroines are bold an assertive. They have the strong potentiality for adaptability; they live in the firm ground of reality and accept the bitter truth of their live.

Key Words: immigrants, cultural clash, self-independence, globalization and stereotype.
