Abstract

Mosquito by Roma Tearne deeply dwells with the concept of memory, a novel based on Sri Lankan Civil War. Being a diasporic writer, Tearne portrays her war trodden homeland with pain and suffering. Theo Samarajeeva, the protagonist of the novel returns to his native land after the sudden demise of his wife in London. His sole intention is to complete his fourth novel in his motherland. But destiny has played a crucial role for which he is kidnapped and suffers pathetically, due to his sympathy towards the Tamils. The novel thus becomes a thread of relentless memories associated with different characters of the novel. Memory moulds and recreates the shape of the novel, by highlighting devastative side of Sri Lanka and its consequences upon the lives of common people.
