Diaspora literature revolves around the idea of a home land or a place where displacement happens and deals with the narration of harsh exile seen in the characters of many diasporic novels due to their expulsion. Exile plays a very significant role in shaping diasporic sensibilities. Manjushree Thapa’s “Seasons of Flight” situates underprivileged diasporic subjects from Nepal and the United States of America in the contexts of cross-cultural interactions and in betweenness of life. Thapa mainly deals with migration, nationalism, colonialism, diaspora, and globalization, has done more than represent or recover the lives of people who are living under the forces of these historical aspects and socio- cultural formations. This study examines Manjushree Thapa’s novel Seasons of Flight from a global standpoint to identify the migration and the impact of cross-cultural experiences. Prema, the central character in the novel, participates in the EVD programme operated by the US government as a way for young people from underdeveloped countries to immigrate to the United States.
