Jhumpa Lahiri's novel The Lowland, traces the fortune of gentle fraternal bonds frayed asunder by cruel political affairs. Lahiri's description of the story events purports to show how the nonappearance of loved ones becomes secretly a presage unforgettable presence within the subliminal mind of the exaggerated characters directing their obvious actions to their own significant ways of life through which they are aggravated on. When their respective paths interweave, Lahiri proves herself to be skillful at depicting the sadness at the central part of the complicated interpersonal relationships that materializes. This report attempts to clutch the import of this work of fiction by situating the author's exclusive presence both in the position millennium Indian English literature as well as in the stuff of the story. Its logical method moves from a detailed study of the twisted plot through a network of characterisation, examination of the multiplex narration principal to a mixture of themes that have modern-day appeal.
