Abstract
Diasporic writing in novels, short stories, travelogues, poems, and essays has not been new to post colonial literature. The sense of yearning for the ‘homeland’ or ‘root’, a strange and unusual attachment to its traditions, religions, and languages gave birth to the so-called diasporic literature. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, one of the foremost writers of the diasporic literature, in her American Book Award winning first collection of short stories, Arranged Marriage, beautifully presents inter alia the matrix of diasporic consciousness like alienation, loneliness, rootlessness, nostalgia, questioning, cultural conflict, etc. The present paper delves into these elements and highlights Divakaruni’s concerns for racism, economic disparity, miscarriage, divorce, etc in her acclaimed collection of short stories, Arranged Marriage.
