Abstract
This paper aims at studying the immigrant characters in the works of the non-resident Indian writer Indira Ganesan. Does her immigrant status affect her writings? If so in what way does it get reflected? Do the female characters articulate the author’s voice? These are some of the seminal questions raised in this paper. Ganesan makes an excellent attempt at depicting different types of characters who behave differently in a given situation. She tries to establish that it is not possible to create a uniform pattern of behaviour among immigrant characters. She examines cross cultural lives and portrays them as they are in her fictions. Her novels are so close to life and they offer a convincing materials to the readers.
