Postcolonial Consciousness in Kamala Markandaya’s A Silence of Desire and Possession

Author(s)

Abstract
Postcolonial Studies propels an interdisciplinary and cross-border mode of approaching a text often oscillating backward in times and reverberates the repression, resistance and repudiation of a once-colonial world. Likewise, in all Postcolonial Literature, Indian Writing in English is also a corollary product of the amalgamation of British Culture and the native Indian Culture. Kamala Markandaya has visaged the corrosion of Indian aesthetic values and erosion of Indian traditional values during the doom of colonization. The paper attempts to study the postcolonial themes in her two novels-A Silence of Desire and Possession. The paper introspects how these two novels depict the palpable conflict between the materialistic approach of the west and traditional ascetic approaches of India and the destructive impact of the same.
