This paper focuses on the fiction of the multi-award winning Bangladeshi-Australian novelist Adib Khan. From the plurality of cultures in which Khan's fiction is embedded, the paper draws out its subcontinental philosophical and aesthetic dimensions. The paper hypothesises that in Khan's fiction, the diasporic's return to the 'imaginary homeland' is triggered by the desire for self-knowledge and self-fulfilment. It extends to an analysis of the aesthetics of this return journey. The paper will be framed by the classical Indian theories of Rasa (Aesthetics).
