 Abstract

The archetype of journey or migration is fundamental and phenomenal to literature of both the East and the West. The canon of diasporic literature is mainly preoccupied with the issues pertaining to acculturation, identity, alienation, search for the root and subsequent trauma etc. The new phenomenon of going back to ancestral land, of late, looms large all over the world history and specially after the new US President Donald Trump’s Immigration Policy that has threatened millions of migrants to deport and to return to homeland. The present paper attempts to contextualize South Asian return diaspora to the ancestral homeland in the paradigm of transnational mobility while exploring social, political, historical, psychological dimension in the novel, The Assassin’s Song (2007) by M.G.Vassanji. My study will further explore returnee’s complex negotiation with the issues like ‘home’, ‘identity’ and ‘belonging’.

Key Words: Diaspora, acclimatization, home, belonging, identity, nation-building process, transnationalism.
