The word ‘diaspora’ means a dispersion of an originally homogeneous entity, such as a language or culture.  

With reference to the context, Indian diaspora becomes more prominent in Ghosh’s writings.  

From this text, we come to know that several Indians have settled in different countries of the West, especially England and America. Agha Shahid, his brother and two sisters, Suketu Mehta and the writer form part of the Indian diaspora in America. Shahid belonged to Kashmir and migrated to America in 1975. his elder brother was already settled there. His two sisters also joined them later. These people, though living in another land, never forgot about their roots. These Indians feel a sense of unity and keep meeting each other on various occasions.
