Cognitive Migration in Pakistani Fiction: A Postcolonial Study
Cognitive Migration in person can precede the migration in person and the writer employ their imagination for this purpose. This phenomenon has acquired unprecedented import because of migrations frequency and concentration of migrants on the borders of the rich countries. The migrants are in an effort to find easy doors of entry and are fascinated by the prospects of greener pastures of lands. This enhanced migrant phenomenon necessitates the enquiry as to how much the characters portrayed by the Pakistani postcolonial writers undergo a cognitive migration even before migrating to the land of their desire. The researcher has read the selected chunks of the Hamid’s Exit West as it is the latest imaginative work on Migration but with a more cognitive aspect in it. The selected passages have been analyzed under the lens proposed by Kyle in his recently published essay. The Analysis has indicated that most of the migrants undergo cognitive migration before they actually migrate to their destinations.
