Abstract

Migration and Diaspora studies have a significant role in the Indian English Literature. The term Diaspora has established in the late 20th century from the Greek word meaning ‘to scatter’. Diaspora has emerged as a theory of postcolonial studies. A Diaspora is defined as a community of people who do not live in their country of origin, but maintain their heritage. The most prominent diasporic writers of Indian literature are V.S Naipaul, Salman Rushdie, Anita Desai, Jhumpa Lahiri and Kiran Desai
