Ancila. B, Dr. B. Krishnan


This paper analyses the Mistry’s novel Such a Long Journey which deals with the Parsis cultural heritage and history. The novel entangles the mirror of reflection around the characters in the novel .The Parsis are treated as secondary humans and they are neglected in all fields. The novel concerns the real ideologies of the Parsi community which faces many problems because of the corrupted governments. As a Parsi writer, he raises his voice for the people belonging to the low class and their rights. There is a concept that wherever the destruction of caste, culture and class division are buried, there arises a new morning star for every individual in the society. The distinction between the cultural and caste make many conflicts in the contemporary society. The cultural diversity exists not only in a particular culture, it spreads all over the world.
