As the use of the Diaspora has proliferated from the last few decades, its meaning got stretched in various directions. Dispersion of an established system brought about by the crisis, coercion, catastrophe and other forcible movements is called Diaspora. In Diaspora the immigrant is caught in an in-between position that lives border lives on the margins of different nations where his identity is questioned because identity has been shown as central to the discourse of Diaspora. Location of Culture addresses those who live border lives on the margins of different nations, in-between contrary homelands and in this book Bhabha claimed that borders are important thresholds, full of contradiction and ambivalence, acts as a kind of medium that both separate and join different places. Bhabha claimed that identity is a discursive product that can be made and remade in new and innovative ways creating hybrid identities and the concept of hybridity had proved very important as a possibility to remade and remodel identities in new and innovative ways.
