AbstractIndian writing in English has reached global acclaim in the hands of various embryonic new writers of this contemporary era. In recent times numerous writers contribute to the growth and development of Indian English literature through their artistic portrayal under various literary genres. Sudha Murty — who blooms in this category of modern women writer — contributes to Indian English literature on a large scale. She captures the true spirit of Indian culture in all her creative works. She tries to incorporate many Indian mythologies too in her literary works. Her fiction Dollar Bahu apprehends realistically the Indian culture and on the other hand, she attempts to bring out the hardships of immigrant marriage experience in the milieu of Indian background through her characters. This paper aims to trace the elements of culture shock as experienced by the character — Gouramma — which in turn creates a great awareness to the readers in terms of marriage and foreign land.
