Abstract: The present dissertion undertakes a study of irony in Bharati Mukherjee’s Jasmine. The study tries to examine the activities of Jasmine, a rebellious woman, and her presentation. Jasmine resists every kind of dominationexercisedoverher and she seems to transcend it with the help of exaggeration, Hindu dharma and males. Mukherjee, a postcolonial writer, while presenting Jasmine, ironizes regressive traditional Indian values evenwhen it upholds them largely. In the same way it reduces the life of the American metropole. Jasmine becomes the subject of intellectual pursuit of a contemporary traditions and nothing more. Jasmine in both culture ( Indian and American) remains as an ironic figure.
