    Abstract :
    This paper is an in-depth analysis of the leading woman character of the novel ‘Jasmine’ by Bharati Mukherjee and her immigrant experiences as a woman born and brought up in India, but one who wants to be an American. The course of journey from Jasmine to Jane is focused in relation with the place she moves at different time. She tries to adapt herself into foreign culture where she acquires new independent individual identity. Jasmine transforms herself to different selves by changing her names in turn changing her personality to each of the new places she acquaints with. It also deals with the struggles of the protagonist and how she overcomes all such and eventually becomes a care giver in the newly adopted land.
