This paper attempts to focus on the people
with Indian roots in the distant land. Before and after
independence, many Indians settled in other countries as
immigrants. The intentions to get better jobs, a high
standard of living, better opportunities, high earnings,
and higher education have made these people leave their
homeland and live as immigrants in other countries.
Such people have to adjust to two completely different
cultures, one that they have brought from India and the
other that they have to face in these other countries.
Many of these immigrants are keen to represent their
country by writing about their own memories, people,
nature, friends, relationships, culture, rituals, etc. to
share their feelings and experiences as Indian diaspora
members. The advent of Indian women novelists on the
literary horizon is an important development in Indian
English literature. These women writers have also
contributed to other genres, such as drama, poetry, and
short stories, not only in English but also in regional
languages like Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Punjabi, Tamil,
Kannada, and so on. In the last two decades, Indian
women’s writing in English has blossomed, both in India
and abroad .There is a significant place for diasporic
Indian English fiction in portraying mainly Indian
diaspora in a wide span.
