ABSTRACT: Bharathi Mukherjee’s Jasmine with the postcolonial undercurrent in the novel, represents the English language, Western culture, enlightenment and progress, which become embedded in Jasmine’s consciousness. Jasmine does appear to have secured “happy ending,” as she takes on the comfortable position of the middle-class wife, nursemaid and virtual colonizer. But this life cannot satisfy her-it eventually resembles the duty and oppressiveness of her life in India-and so Jasmine must live beyond the novel to try to find a real “happy” ending. Although throughout telling her story Jasmine purports to be searching for self-fulfilment, she is always merely surviving and adapting by merely replacing one role with another and one man with another, which serves to suspend her in the ambiguous stale of her postcoloniality.
