A Study of Parsi Selfhood in Rohinton Mistry’s Such a Long Journey

Deepak Kumar Singh

Abstract


The anguish of migrant writing often arises not from what it includes but from that which it excludes or is excluded from. In immigration or exile the essence of individual identity is dislocated from its human centres and is placed in a cultural context where the context itself assumes a disproportionately larger significance than the particular texts situated within it. With many unspeakable experiences and feelings, these are narratives that struggle to express their own epistemological basis. The twin onslaughts of global capitalism and travel technologies have transformed the world in a manner that we have all become denizens of a space without borders irrespective of whether we remain at home or move.
