Multiculturalism in Bharati Mukherjee’s Novel Jasmine
In the postmodern era, when identities are paradoxically diminished and expanded, terms like globalisation and multiculturalism have evolved to characterise the new world order. While the globe continues to shrink into a global village in which differences become indistinguishable from similarities, civilizations and groups outside the prevailing ideology find methods to assert their uniqueness. The purpose of this Paper is to examine the identity problem that has resulted from Indian migration to the United States of America, as well as the nostalgia that has accompanied immigration and other difficulties. Additionally, the cross-cultural struggle is discussed extensively, with allusions to Mukherjee’s Jasmine from multicultural and feminist viewpoints. On the other side, such misunderstanding about the subject results in identity crisis, which may be defined as the inability to establish a definite position for oneself.
