The study hypothesizes the existence of impacts of Western culture through English
colonialism and Language on Indian life which caused an alienated dilemma in
embracing the modernity, and that opposes the universal understanding that
considers accepting modernity by the colonized people is very easy and a matter
of time! In fact in the era of globalization, no society can resist the influence of alien
cultures, but still some regions incapable of being familiarized with it. Indian
English fiction refers to the body of work by writers in India who write in English
language and whose native or co-native language could be one of the numerous
languages of India. It is also associated with the works of members of the Indian
diasporic fiction writers, such as Anita Desai (b.1937), Raja Rao (1908-2006),
Arundhati Roy (b.1961), Salman Rushdie (b.1947), and Amitav Ghosh (b.1956).
The study, thus, tries to tackle the selected quotes from the fictions of above named
authors whom attempt their efforts to depict the postcolonial emphasis on the process
of colonialization and the record of a strong resistance to the masters of the
colonized societies with the insisting on contemporary realities of life, besides the
accepting and assimilating of some to adopt the modernity as a new traditional
culture which accompanies by certain events. The study also adopts Edward Said's
theory of Orientalism to go through the topic in uncovering its hypotheses, and it
follows the MLA style to the process of documentation as well.
