Hippolyte Taine famously said literature is a study of “the race, the moment and the milieu” (01). If literature mirrors society, then globalization is very much a theme of many writings for the tremendous change that it has caused over the last two decades. The present paper is an effort to read select novels of Amitav Ghosh, Kiran Desia and Aravind Adiga who have dealt with the changing times in various of their works. Ghosh in his fictions establishes the fact that globalization is not a present day phenomenon, rather centuries ago the world was closely knit together before the toll of colonization in The Circle of Reason and In an Antique World. Kiran Desai in the Inheritance of Loss shows how this international enterpreneural movement brought a new light in the impoverished and marginalized classes but it also proved a dawn of false promises for many. Adiga also takes a lower, labourer class character in The White Tiger, who ascends surprising heights propelled by the globalised world but the loopholes are rampant. There is a grand show of money minting but the old values and humane ways of life are trampled over by the means adopted. This overwhelming phenomenon no doubt, improves economy and social structure but the mental and spiritual health of the same flourishing society is scarred and scourged forever. The paper also intends to look at women in perspective of the upcoming situation.
