In Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's work we have women who either live abroad or happen to be visiting India. These women are no doubt conditioned by the Indian upbringing but have risen above the traditional constraints. They are torn between old and the new values. Throughout her work, Divakaruni uses her mastery of rhythm to create unforgettable characters and weave stories that are both exotic and familiar, at once fresh and universal. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's fiction in a way celebrates the experience of immigration.
