This paper attempts to examine migration in context of globalization and the twenty-first century dynamics between the global and the local and/or vice-versa. Apart from economic migrations, a huge section of migrated individuals travel across national boundaries for the purpose of education. Migration, in turn, has often been studied in close reference to labour, economy, and diaspora literatures, which looks back with nostalgia toward one’s land of origin. My paper, on the contrary, would like to study migration through the lens of travel with regard to Vikram Seth’s From Heaven Lake, wherein he physically returns back India via China, Tibet, and Nepal.
