Moyez Vassanji is a diasporic writer who in his fifth novel, „The In-Between World of Vikram Lall‟ focuses on the situations of Indians in Africa and the Western countries. Like Vassanji, the narrator-protagonist Vikram Lall, oscillates between the African and the Asian throughout the novel. His „in-between‟ position reflects his continuously negated sense of belonging. After independence, Paul Nderi, a corrupt politician of Kenya, uses him as a scapegoat to legitimatize his fraudulent money transactions. In order to avoid prosecution, Vikram escapes to a small town by Lake Ontario in Canada, and moulds himself to live a new life. Both Vassanji and Vikram turn to the west for stability and belongingness.
