Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is an award winning Author, Poet, Activist and Teacher. Her themes include the Indian experience, history, myth, culture and challenges of living in a multicultural world. The article portrays the main themes of myth and culture in Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s select novels. Divakaruni brings back the long forgotten belief, tradition, culture and Indian myths through her works. Her first short story collection “Arranged marriage” won the American book award, PEN Josephine miles award and Bay Area Book reviewers award and opened her way to become an eminent writer in English Literature. My attempt in this paper is to study mythology as a tool to express the reflection of society, its technique and culture used by the writer. To prove this I take CHITRA BANERJEE DIVAKARUNI’S novels “THE PALACE OF ILLUSIONS”, “THE FOREST OF ENCHANTMENTS” and the short story collections “THE LIVES OF STRANGERS”. CHITRA BANERJEE DIVAKARUNI’S books are directed mainly to females of all races who share a common experience. The Palace of Illusions is based on the great Indian epic The Mahabharatha, whereas The Forest of Enchantments is based on epic The Ramayana and The Lives of Strangers consist of short story collections interprets divine relationship couples. Keywords: Culture, Tradition, Myth, Female, Identity etc.
