Essay from the year 2019 in the subject Literature - Basics, grade: M.A, , language: English, abstract: This paper analyses Prajwal Parajuly's short stories "The Gurkha's Daughter". In "The Gurkha’s Daughter" (2012), Parajuly concerns characters survival through cultural practices between Nepali and English convention as hybridity in a host country. The characters of these stories immigrate to the host country with some purpose where they develop hybrid cultural space. They seem to have difficulty in coping with the host culture and the country because of which they start to negotiate and adapt new language, behavior, religion, lifestyle, relationship etc. In order to show the presence of hybrid cultural space, different hybrid elements from the stories were identified and reasoned for hybridity. Hybrid is a word termed by Homi K. Bhabha which gives rise to new and unidentifiable cultural identity that has negotiation of meaning and representation. Hybridity is a product of adaptation and negotiation that is developed by immigrants in a host country for acceptance by the host community or for survival.

To commemorate Chitralekha Nepauney's Chaurasi - her landmark 84th birthday - three of Chitralekha's grandchildren are travelling to Gangtok, Sikkim, to pay their respects. Agastaya is flying in from New York. Although a successful oncologist, he is dreading his family's inquisition into why he is not married, and is terrified that the reason for his bachelordom will be discovered. Joining him are Manasa and Bhagwati, travelling from London and Colorado respectively. One the Oxford-educated achiever; the other the disgraced eloper - one moneyed but miserable; the other ostracized but optimistic. All three harbour the same dual objective: to emerge from the celebrations with their formidable grandmother's blessing and their nerves intact - a goal that will become increasingly difficult thanks to a mischievous maid and a fourth, uninvited guest.

'Mischievous and measured, Joanna Lumley gives us a remarkable portrait of a groovy life...a life astonishingly rich in experience' THE TIMES 'Captures perfectly the mixture of poshness and larkiness that has captivated Joanna Lumley's audiences...Joanna writes beautifully, managing to be both thoughtful and amusing' DAILY MAIL 'An actress with an extraordinarily varied life that has taken her from Kashmir to Kent, from Bond girl to Ab Fab. It's all here in this gloriously illustrated, entertaining memoir, that's packed with personal photos and reminiscences' WOMAN & HOME Joanna Lumley is one of Britain's undisputed national treasures. A single mum, iconic actress, voiceover artist and author, best known for her roles in ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS and THE NEW AVENGERS, she is a former model and Bond girl, a human rights activist for Survival International and the Gurkha Justice Campaign, and is now considered a 'national treasure' of Nepal as well as the UK. She has won two BAFTA awards, but it is the sheer diversity of her life that has made her so compelling a personality - early years in Kashmir and Malaya, growing up in Kent, then a photographic model before becoming an actress, appearing in a huge range of roles, and many documentaries including those on on the Northern Lights, Bhutan and the Nile. 'Lumley has done it all, from sex kitten and TV star to activist for the Gurkhas. Read about it here.' - No.2 of The Independent's 'Ten Best New Memoirs' INDEPENDENT
