This book considers the novels and short stories of Raja Rao in terms of the diasporic life of the author. Among the earliest of the 'second wave' Indian diaspora in the west, Raja Rao employs this unique perspective in most of his works. This is the hallmark of his writing. However, we also discuss the varied human and spiritual aspects of his work as reflecting his own life. His experiences as an Indian in a western world. But Raja Rao's writing also counts as postcolonial and postmodern far ahead of any others here or there.
