Author(s): Sweta Kumari Jha
Abstract: This paper discusses the depiction of social, cultural and political India in the novels of Rohinton Mistry with respect to Tales from Firoz Bagh, Such A Long Journey, and A Fine Balance. The focus is on the culture and life style of the Parsi community in the works of Rohinton Mistry. These novels are written in the backdrop of India-Pakistan Second War and the period of Emergency declared during the time when Indira Gandhi was Prime Minister of India. The research paper tries to throw light on Rohinton’s perception of the Indian Parsi society and culture from 1960 to1990 in Bombay.
