While for V.S. Naipaul home is ultimately nowhere, for Salman Rushdie home is potentially everywhere. While Naipaul sees cultural collisions and collusions as irredeemably tainting and corrupting, Rushdie casts a more lenient eye on the beneficent possibilities and opening vistas of cultural encounter. Although their characters are equally displaced and rendered homeless by the sinuous historicity of their sense of identity and belongingness, their quests for the core of the postcolonial condition follow somewhat different routes and itineraries, inscribed on different historical and cultural maps. If Naipaul writes back from a space he situates at the rim of the world, from a historical void he wishes to replenish with his historicizing discourse marked by the embittered consciousness of geographical and political marginality, Rushdie confronts us with the overwhelming multiplicity of layers and strands of history crisscrossing the massive subcontinent whose centrality as the jewel in the crown situated it at the very heart of the British Empire.
