: An individual’s culture is quite important as it reflects their way of life. The culture is the ideas, customs and the social behaviour of a particular people or society. This paper highlights the diasporic and cultural consciousness that is inherent in Bharati Mukherjee’s protagonists who consistently try to seek an identity by adjusting with the society and their environment. Mukherjee writes particularly about the Asian women immigrants in America. The paper analyses how the protagonist is torn between the native culture and the culture of the immigrant land. It aims to throw light on how the culture influences and has an impact on the protagonist Tara and her sisters in Bharati Mukherjee’s novel Desirable Daughters.
