Colonial experience, the trauma of partition and the socio political developments of the post independence era have found expression in the form of powerful narratives and metaphors in the writings of these writers. T P Ashoka’s Kathana Bharathi is a critique of these writings. These studies in modern Indian literature are valuable contribution to modern Indian literary criticism.
