Abstract

Indian writing paints the true colors of life in India and so does the writings of Sudha Murthy. She portrays the factual picture of exotic India and accentuates the importance of Indian culture in her novels. In the novel Dollar Bahu (2005), she compares the cultures of India and the West. Immigration and exchange of cultural delegations brings out the differences in culture. The cultural shift is incorporated as a social necessity but it triggers fear and anxiety due to the feeling of displacement as reflected in the character of Chandru, who is torn between the Indian and the Western culture. Both the cultures are different and best of the two worlds cannot be achieved as they cannot co-exist.
