Description

Locating the Minority Voices in Rohinton Mistry's Novels: A Postcolonial Review is a comprehensive analysis of the marginalised and suppressed voices in the three celebrated novels of Rohinton Mistry namely Such a Long Journey (1991), A Fine Balance (1995) and Family Matters (2002). These three novels ascribe value to the Parsis who belong to the minority class of the Indian society. At first, the Parsis were considered with lesser significance in the sphere of Nation building despite their laudable assistance in varied fields. Mistry's novels can really be described as a cauldron of innumerable Parsi people with an entirely different nature of culture and heritage. Mistry provides a space for all these marginalised individuals mainly Parsis and lends a distinctive voice to tell the untold stories of this severely diminishing minority community. This book is an attempt to trace the Parsi minority voices which unfold the struggles faced by them, their concerns, their aims and aspiration amid the traditional Parsi rituals and ethics and the advent of modernity in the light of postcolonial analysis of Mistry's novels.
