    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.
