Abstract: The twenty-first century is an age of Technology; which brings together the people from different countries in search of better education, services, commerce, material success, prosperity and so on. As a result of it, there is increasing cross-cultural interaction and awareness about the international communities. The issues related to even other cultures, religions and geographical locations have not been alien to the people belonging to certain place. Thus, the world at present has transformed to the status of Global Village . This identity as the Global Village has brought the world into new horizons, issues, concerns, aspirations and etc. The Cross-cultural interaction and migratory movement are the issues prominently attached and interlinked with the cultural, social, psychological, gender-related, economical, political and geographical concerns. The cross-cultural migration has been continued for centuries and it has increased during the previous couple of decades. It has resulted in emergence of problems related with identity awareness and aspects of assimilation. Thus, the people in migration face various problems with the people and the land they visit, which results in the sufferings in their life. In this context, it is necessary to acquaint the contemporary educated young generation with the problems emerging due to cross- cultural migration. It has been a need of time to increase awareness in young generation about the possibilities of and the problems emerging in the cross-cultural migration because migrated people belong to a particular cultural background. newlineThe literature by the Diasporic writers is a type of self-analysis, a sort of therapy for survival in this Darwinian global village, in which surrounding forces determine the creative output. The predicament and problems of women due to cross-cultural encounters in immigration have remained an issue of discussion for the South Asian Diasporic women writers.
