The second half of the twentieth century witnessed the end of colonial domination of a large part of the world by imperial powers. With the change in the geo political situation the intellectual focus was turned towards the manner in which the cultures of the suppressed nations had been subverted by the colonizers. Around 1960s literature came to be seen as a privileged site for understanding social structures, cultural codes and inter ethnic understanding and misunderstanding. This paper is an attempt by focusing on the process of rewriting the Fiction of E. M. Forster, A Passage to India. The writer uses his work not only to reject the period’s prevailing values of life and art, but also to assert his difference and re-appropriates this rebellious tone to criticise the Western mind.
