Abstract
Kiran Desai’s Man Booker Prize winning novel The Inheritance of Loss is interwoven from the threads of globally mingled cultures. The novel has issues of cultural hybridity, global multiculturalism, cultural clashes and the characters’ efforts to cope up with these cultural differences. It links unusual geography of migration and diaspora, showcasing that just as globalization creates new social and economic gap, it also enables migrants to challenge ethnic and social barriers by forging cross-cultural connections. The present study explores the different cultural issues and trauma and sufferings of the characters as reflected in the novel.
