There is no denying the fact that the nature of the diaspora utterly depends on the nature of the host country. Diasporas, instead of their common origin, may behave in a totally diversed manner depending on the country of their re-location. The narrative of diaspora is significantly a narrative of the “self”. In the modern context, the word “home” not necessarily connotes as “self” of belonging and an individual sometimes seems to dwindle between “home” and homeland. For Salman Rushdie, being Indian outside India is a daily questioning of the self. There are also people like V.S. Naipaul, who travel because they are not at home anywhere. It is also true in case of Rohinton Mistry.
