Abstract

The present paper strives to interrogate the fictionality of attempts by the Punjabi expatriates for the overseas maintenance, preservation and proliferation of their Punjabi cultural identity as a result of the economic prosperity of Punjabi brethren settled abroad and its concomitant effects back home on Punjab, Punjabi language and Punjabi culture .The paper places on record the direct contestation between the fictional microcosm comprised of the diasporic milieu portrayed in diasporic literature and the actual life led by diasporic Punjabi expatriates on the host land, which is the replica of the original back home in Punjab , and the macrocosm of the actual real culture of  geographical terrain called Punjab in India on the world map.
