[Index term : Wandering, Migration, post colonial. Border, Novels]
The time that we live in, is the age of wandering and craving for coming back to the roots, an age of mobility and apparent borderlessness. We inhabit a world that is subject to constant movements and consequent changes, the immediate result of which is a sense of instability in a context in which borders are less fixed. The traditional settler life–form has given its place to a new nomadic life style in which migration, shifting, and relocation has become a familiar trend at times and at times a compulsion.
