Cross Cultural and Traditional Conflicts in Anita Rau Badami’s The Hero’s Walk

A. Roshini, P. Jeyappriya


Post Modernism is being used to describe other subjects like politics, art and architecture, philosophy and popular culture. Post modernism is essentially a philosophic and theoretically position. It privileges the local over the universal, differences rather than similarities, confrontation rather than traditionalism and hybridity rather than purity. The scope has become very wide and comprehensive. It is a social, political and aesthetic ideology which reflects the cross- currents prevailing in the social moment in which we live today. It manifests historical perspective of modernism and modernity. This has been the dominant mode of literature from the latter half of the twentieth century. The world has been converted into a global village it has become a confederation of cultures. This has been brought out in the novels of Anita Rau Badami, a diasporic writer. This paper deals with the cross- cultural and traditional inconsistencies of the migrated characters presented by Badami in The novel, The Hero’s Walk.
