Abstract

Cultural alienation is described as the process of abandoning one’s own cultural or
cultural background which results in cultural conflicts and the lingering Nostalgia. The
immigrants are encountered a new culture often try to find synchronization between native
culture and the adopted one. The expatriate builds a cocoon around himself as a refuge from
cultural dilemmas and from the experienced hostility or unfriendliness in the new country. It
focuses on the native country that has been left behind, while immigration emphasizes on the
country into which one has entered as a migrant. The earlier versions of expatriate such as exile,
refugee, and emigrant are today subsumed under the umbrella term Diaspora.
