Abstract

What is migration? Is it bad? Is it good? How does it affect the immigrant? Is the consequence of migration a feeling of displacement? Or does it differ individual to individual? As no two personalities are alike, as no two mindsets are the same, as no two human backgrounds are similar, what after effects does an act of migration have? It’s a globally heard saying that home is where the heart is… So, how does the heart take a sudden radical shift in location and life? And why do individuals migrate, leaving behind their comfort zones? And since when have people been doing it, this moving from one place to another? Added to the notion of migration is this widely used term in the modern era (maybe earlier too but on a lesser scale than when diasporic literature became a raging trend), ‘diaspora’. So, ‘migration’ and ‘diaspora’: Are their connotations and denotations similar? Are they interlinked? Or are they simply synonymous? Let us explore, and maybe attempt to define and demarcate migration and diaspora: their essences, nuances and effects on the human mind, personality and culture.
