Abstract
Communication is the basic key to any relationship. Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies focuses on communication as one of the universal themes throughout the book. The stories demonstrate how communication is the key to the success or failure of relationships. While there are instances when communication is effectively employed and therefore enabled the characters to build strong and intimate connections, there are examples of where communication was superficial or ineffectual, leading to unstable, limited relationships. Jhumpa Lahiri illustrates the importance of communication within relationships by allowing readers to experience the consequences and advantages that have developed as a result throughout the short stories. We recognise the necessity to communicate with our loved ones vicariously through the lives of several of the characters. Lahiri threads the need to talk to and to connect with people into her story by showing that no matter where people are from they need that human contact. Therefore, humanity needs to communicate its messages in order to feel whole.

Key words: Communication, Selfishness, Monotony, Alienation, Loneliness, Gap
