The Journey Motif in Amitav Ghosh’s Novels

Vinati Bourasi, Ashok Sachdeva


Amitav Ghosh, the snow haired writer, has used intentionally the journey theme as
a metaphor and symbol of life. The journey of the characters is happening from the
fantasies of their past realities and arriving to the truth and the present realities of life.
It is observed that the main characters struggle to move into the future and live in the
present. The style of his writing is back and forth movement of narrative and is in
sprinkled pieces. Time past which means memory and time present which means
reality are seen in the novels. The novels end with many questions.
