Abstract
The purpose of this research article is to highlight Bapsi Sidhwa’s creative achievement which chiefly lies in recuperating the submerged voices and weaving their personal stories into larger histories of community and nation. Moreover, the researcher explores the thematic apprehensions in Sidhwa’s novels - sense of community; man-woman relationships and gender issues; migration and diaspora; history and transgression; and the idea of nation, and how these themes are welded into one artistic whole.
Keywords
