Abstract

Since times immemorial immigration has been associated with negative connotations for women- nostalgia, fractured identity and insecurity. However, this is not the case with women in Laihri’s work; they are particularly powerfully affected by the multi-ethnic environment of the cities they migrate to. The majority of Lahiri’s first-generation female characters, no doubt, first go through processes of disorientation and loneliness in foreign cities. Ultimately, however, they are able to negotiate these transnational urban environments in their favor. Eventually, they develop a more flexible relationship with their home(s), have an occupation other than taking care of the house, and educate their children to choose the best elements from the two cultures in which they are raised. The present article, through the character of Ashima Ganguli, focuses on this aspect of immigrant women in Laihri’s first novel The Namesake.

Key Words: Immigration, nostalgia, identity, multiethnic, transnational.
