The major issue of postcolonial literature is the search for identity, which is debated by many authors and critics. Many people's situations have a big impact on their life because of their culture and long, rich traditions. They may thus become marginalized and victimized in both society and their own families. These inquiries cause them to reflect about their lives. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is a young writer who is bringing social issues to light. She has been praised as a novelist who has explored blended identities in the majority of her works. Many of her works display autobiographical components that were employed in an artistic approach in her works. Her works are primarily about immigrant experiences, with India as a starting point and journey to other countries, particularly America, for better possibilities and normal lifestyles. Her work also challenges society’s patriarchal control. In many of her novels, male characters are substituted with female characters. After coming to terms with their lives, all of her female characters become extremely powerful. Karobi’s transcultural adventure has a significant impact on her life.
