Diaspora is the most emerging trend of this era. It’s unique role in international borders and development of Global village shows its significance and value in contemporary period. It’s a binary issue and implementation of multiculturalism. Because multiculturalism is the ongoing process to extricate the interculturalism and cosmopolitanism. Dislocation degenerates and there occurs the Diaspora. The entry and exit from one nation to another, the transnationalism, the social connections and discrepancies’, the assimilations, adaptations and acculturation  all these are the byproduct of Diasporafervor. Diaspora is the emotional attachment or investment from the home country to the host countries. The presenters of these emotional sensibilities are playing dominant role in the cultural exchange. The emotional sensibility presenters are the cultural ambassadors of India. Yet the ethnic conflicts cannot be denied due to Diaspora Identities, expatriates or immigrants in the Foreign Countries. All these cultural clashes as well as interculturalism are the parallel track of a single train. And this train is a ‘Culture-train’. Culture can, do and will do the definite changes in dual communities of Diaspora and aboriginals (expatriates and natives). The role should be played by the emotional Presenters who are none other than the Diaspora writers of India. This particular research paper investigates the dominant Cultural ambassadors in real sense how they spread cultures or adapt the foreign culture regardless of ethnic conflict. So, here the theme of the Conference is worth justified. The title of the Conference ‘Diaspora Governance in International Relations: Opportunities and Challenges for India’ here opportunities are the Diaspora texts when they spread Cultural diversity means the cultural ambassadors do and challenges means the texts arouse the Ethnic conflicts when they denote the truth courageously with moral strength.
