Abstract: Using a thematic approach, this essay will evaluate cosmopolitanism by considering its relationship with issues of race. It argues that the concept of cosmopolitanism is inadequate and impractical while focusing on the South-Asian diaspora, particularly of the Indian immigrants in Britain. The primary materials used are Hanif Kureishi’s Buddha of Suburbia (1990), Anita Desai’s Bye Bye Blackbird (1985) as well as Ken Kwapis’ television sitcom, Outsourced (2010).
