Bharati Mukherjee is one of the true authors of the Indian Diaspora, having achieved a fortunate
position within a relatively brief creative journey. She has captured the Indian immigrant
involvement in her works and two collections of short fiction as an exile in the United States. She
is an author, short story essayist, verified essayist, and writer who was born in India. The vast
bulk of her writings are about the lives of Indian immigrants in the United States. She
investigates the topic of movement and change in her books. Immigrants, too, have one desire: to
live in America for the rest of their lives. As a result, as immigrants, they go through a process of
transition and identity transformation. She passes through distinct stages, such as exile,
progress, and migration. Her paintings reveal her conflicts with the ethos, cultures, and people
of the country where she was born (India) and the one to which she emigrated (Canada)
(America). In all of her works, the nature of societal conflict causing mental urgency forms the
core of her achievement as a creative craftsman. She is succeeding in portraying societal conflict
between the East and the West as a mental crises in her heroes' own psyche. Mukherjee focuses
on sensitive female protagonists who require a stable sense of personal and societal identity. She
is concerned about her hero's survival in the new surroundings. She is concerned in conveying a
clear and interesting picture of Indian life to the American audience.
