Rohinton Mistry is an Indian born Canadian writer. He is a Parsi Zoroastrian. His writing reflects his own experience of double displacement. He beautifully explores the themes of the complexities of the immigrant experience, the clash of life styles and cultural disorientation in his work. Tales from Firozsha Baag (1987) is a collection of eleven interrelated stories that deal with the Parsis living in a Bombay complex apartment. The aim of this research paper is to explore the diasporic dilemma of the Parsi characters portrayed by Rohinton Mistry in Tales from Firozsha Baag and to show how they are torn between ‘here’ and ‘there’ and face the sense of alienation and separation.
