A DIASPORIC READING OF CHITRA BANERJEE DIVAKARUNIíS BEFORE WE VISIT THE GODDESS: A DISRUPTED TALE DELINEATING MULTIGENERATIONAL DISSEMINATIONS

Smt. Debalina Sengupta, Dr. Joydeep Banerjee.

Abstract
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, a pioneering figure in the Postcolonial era, emerged as the envoy of the female
marginalised sect of the unprivileged migrants; along with their cross-cultural in-betweenness, benumbed
patriarchal subjugation and their utmost endeavour of adaptation with peripheral roles. The major concerns of
diasporic disillusionment and distressful acculturation are well represented through her innovative delineation
as reflected in: The Mistress of Spices, Arranged Marriages, Queen of Dreams, Sisters of the Heart, One
Amazing Thing, The Palace of Illusion and so on. Our present concern; Before We Visit The Goddess (2016), is
another compilation of various episodes happened in the lives of three generations of women; Sabitri, Bela and
Tara. It tells about their pathos, pains and desires, unfulfilled dreams and alienated belongingness. The chapters
are however connected with a common thread of suffering, which is inevitable in all generations, both India and
abroad. The enormous tale of the collective otherization of the Ąsecond sex‚Äü as well as their solemn search of
actual belongingness unfurl the subtle nuances of this book through the incessant narrative shifting, the
aestheticism of magic reality as well as with the delicate touches of stream of consciousness.

Key words: Diaspora, Displacement, In-betweenness, Nostalgia, Root etc.
