Divakaruni explores an updated analysis of the migrated Indian families in India and abroad with each new novel. Her writings focus on the complexities, the extraordinary range of possibilities, situations present in Indian family life. Most important factor regarding Sister of My Heart is the fact that the novelist has chosen ordinary characters which generally live inside and outside the purview of Indian social set up and through them Divakaruni has given a glimpse into the socio-cultural condition prevalent in India.
