Abstract
Literary creations of Rohinton Mistry’s recall the works of Charles Dickens who with his magical writings explores the socio-political issues of the society. He endeavours to fish out the past in his writings. His novel, A Fine Balance throws light on the real motive behind the imposition of emergency. Although the reason as given by the government was the internal and external disturbances but the actual reason as shown by Mistry through his novel AFB was that Indira’s own political career was at stake. Mistry unravels the sufferings and misery caused by the political upheavals that took place during the regime of Indira Gandhi. He portrays the horror and cruelty that was experienced by the people during that period. Like many of the sufferers of Emergency, the characters in Mistry’s novel, A Fine Balance also have to face every trouble, every atrocity that is believed to be associated with that dark phase.
