Abstract
Writers of Indian Diaspora have occupied the centre stage in the last decade generally because of their realistic portrayal of women, who are marginalized, oppressed and exploited in the alien shore. As the women carry the cultural baggage of her native land to her new country, they are caught between cultures. They also encounter the feeling of in-betweenness and the problem of trying to maintain stability between their dual affiliations. The present paper analyses the cultural turmoil encountered by Indian women in Bharati Muhkerjee’s The Tiger’s Daughter and Wife.
