Diasporic Dilemma in Amit Chaudhuri’s Afternoon Raag
Keywords:Diaspora, Amit Chaudhuri, Indian Writing In English, Postcolonialism, Immigrants
Identity is one of the important themes of the diasporic writing. Identity plays an important role in an immigrant's life because they feel rootless and nostalgic when they try to become members of a new group. There are different aspects of identities like political, social, cultural, economic and individual and so on. These are playing an important role in an immigrant's life. The concept of home always gives a sweet feel for immigrants. A sense of belongingness plays an important role in immigrant life. Immigrants never accept the host country as their country.
