Diaspora literature contributes greatly

Diaspora  life contributes greatly in  literature,said Dr.V.Rajakrishnan.He was inaugurating a seminar on Pravasa Sahithyam at Aksharam Campus in Malayalam University, Tirur.

Diaspora literature  is a vast and complex area of creative work and the gulf diaspora is just one portion of it-he said.

Pravasis are left for another country after downtrodden by  the native soil.

Prvasis are unable to cope up with the culture of the destination land and stay as economic settlers.

Vice Chancellor K.Jayakumar presided over the function.

Diaspora literature is not only meant for males.However,the literature also ignored the roles of women in diaspora literature-said Babu Baradwaj.

There are two routes for diaspora literature ; one ,written from the alien land  and another written after returning to the home land-said Musafir Ahammad.

He added that the diaspora literature would help to understand different cultures and one can realise where our stand is.

Novelist Benyamin said that the real identity issue is that the diaspora neither belong  to migrated place nor to the own soil.

The common experience of pravasam can be seen anywhere-he added.

Krishnadas,Khadeeja Mumtas also participated in the discussion.

Dr.C.Ganesh welcomed the gathering.

The fallacy that if a book was wide read ,it was due to the fall in artistic works, should change-said Benyamin.
