Postcolonial Bizarre and Trauma in Arundthathi Roy's The God of Small Things

Afsal Jamal P.

Abstract: The luscious and mysterious description of India sounds unmistakably like a tourist novel of postcolonial bizarre in The God of Small Things. Arndthathi Roy is ethnic and a strong activist and her cultural authenticity passively provides an authentic indian voice through her idealised western way of talking and thinking about the east roy plays a colonial style known for its dominating, restructuring and authoritative power over India using references from politics and history to keep the story real and dangerously intoxicating for her western readers the novel exoticises India's inequality, making light hearted and approachable for its western readers.
