Vol-4,Issue-2,March - April 2019

Author: Satpal Singh

Keywords: Cultural clash, Sikh, Turban.

Abstract: The present paper aims at identifying the problems related to identify that emerge due to the cross-cultural immigration of people especially the women of different generation and in different countries. The short story Montreal 1962 is an excursion into the lives of two Indians in a foreign land and their attempt to establish identity in the face of a competing and hostile alien culture. The loss of cultural symbols is visible at different levels in the story which in return brings forth a clash between the two different cultures. This kind of tension or clash between migrants and natives is a universal phenomenon in the era of migration.
