Abstract
Manoj Das’s writings take the readers to the horizon where both the fantasy and fact are mingled, fables and parables are interconnected and folk tales and stories are mixed to a type of creation to hype the imagination as if wandering in the Disneyland. His short stories and novels portray the ruins and debris left behind the departure of the colonial rulings in India. Like a colonial writer, Das focuses on the fertile culture of his native land that is severely affected by the colonial ruling. His short stories based on the folk lore of his localities that he heard during his childhood. The folk tales he rewrites adding characters and incidents take a shape that is unique and marvelous. The present paper focuses on the post-colonial context of his writings.
