Great events of diaspora were marked from the beginning of colonial era in history. Migration of masses from the British colonies not only end in the Western countries but also to South Asian countries. The past two generations of migrants faced problems of migration in their path of growth, improvising their life conditions, to find their self-identity and self-discovery of community not as the British, not as Asians but just as human beings. The journey of searching own-self involves struggles and pains without receiving a positive result many times. The present paper deals with the diasporic experiences and quest for identity of Anglo-Indian characteristics from the Glen Duncan’s novel, The Bloodstone Papers. Even though the motherland, India, neglects the Anglo-Indian migrants’ characters in the novel coming from the English land, they always look at England as their fatherland. Hence the pain stakes during the years of partition are portrayed and well narrated by Duncan in his work of art and the present paper as well.
