THE MYTH OF IDENTITY INARUNDHATI ROY’S THE MINISTRY OF UTMOST HAPPINESS
The paper entitled The Myth of Identity debunked in Arundhati Roy’s The Minstry of Utmost Happiness figures out that identity is not constant, but it is largely dependent on the physical and socio-political transformations one is exposed to. The central character is a transgender, he/she keeps transforming sometimes unwittingly, unwillingly and willingly to end up as who he/she is now. There are others too who have dual or more identities to survive in hostile landscapes. Apart the characters, old Delhi transforms into a metropolis. The changes both internal/ external and physical/psychological that occur highlight that identity is a fluid phenomenon.
