Abstract: In the second half of twentieth century, Diaspora Studies started gaining central space as a field of research within the orbit of Postcolonial Studies. The canon of diaspora literature mainly deals with issues pertaining to diasporic identity, home, history, nation, language, culture etc. But there is other side of diaspora which is comparatively less discussed and thinly documented by the mainstream diasporic writers. Vernacular literature attempts to bridge this gap by reporting the life of latent diaspora, as the labour migrants in Gulf countries. Hostility instead of hospitality is what they face in the host country. Through the critical study of Benyamin’s novel Goat Days, the present paper attempts to unveil the condition of labour migrants from South Asia migrated to Saudi Arabia.

Keywords: vernacular diasporic literature, latent diaspora, goat days, invisibility, silence.
