Concept Note:

"From Home to Horizon: Women Writers of Indian Diaspora" aims to bring together the diverse voices and narratives of women writers from the Indian diaspora. As globalization and migration continue to shape the world, the experiences and stories of Indian women living beyond their homeland are becoming increasingly significant and complex. This anthology seeks to explore and celebrate the literary contributions of these women, offering a platform for their unique perspectives, struggles, triumphs, and cultural adaptations.

The anthology will be a collection of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and memoirs that reflect the multifaceted experiences of Indian women living in different parts of the world. The editors, Dr. Bijender Singh, Dr. Protibha Sahukar, Dr. SK Sao, and Dr. Anurag Ambasta, envision a tapestry of narratives that not only captures the challenges faced by these women but also highlights their resilience, creativity, and the dynamic ways in which they negotiate their identity in diverse cultural landscapes.
