Exploring the Communication Conflict within Relationships in Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies (2023)
Asma Muzafar, Dr. S.S.Thakur JCR. 2023: 91-96
Jhumpa Lahiri is one of the most acclaimed diasporic writers writing about the dillemmas of Indian-American immigrants. Lahiri very beautifully portrays the predicament of the first and second generation Indian American in the U.S. In her notable work Interpreter of Maladies, Lahiri focuses on communication as one of the universal themes throughout the book. The stories demonstrate the truth that communication is the key to the success or failure of relationship. While there are instances when communiaction is effectively employed and therefore enabled the characters to build the strong and intimate connections, there are examples where communication was superficial or ineffectual, leading to unstable, limited relationships.
