Masooma Ishtiaq,Shazir Hassan,Dr. Saeed ur Rahman.

Abstract
This research aims to investigate the idea of borderland in the relation of its characters in the Arundhati Roy’s novel The Ministry of Utmost Happiness with the critical analysis of Gloria Anzaldua theory of borderlands. In her book Borderlands/LaForentra (1987) she describes her experiences in the Rio Grande Valley between Texas and Mexico. Anzaldua portraits loss of mingling of two different cultures she also throws light on the product of the amalgamation of different cultures because she is one of those kinds of product in her society. She says, “Culture is made by those in power” (16). Cultures and traditions are made by those who are economically and physically strong. Physical borders are less harmful than invisible borders which meant to be the mental borders and these mental borders are the product of our societies.

Key words: Borderland, Identity, culture, Utmost Happiness
